Twisted view of a teenager's problem

I reckon this book is very different to any other book that I have read. It is a dystopian book that targets some of today's major issues. Now, the book comes down to three main points: 1. Popularity-everyone wants to be famous, always trying to get the...

Renting your body out to old people...

Starters come as a massive surprise. It was so much better than I expected, by a long-run. This book is a different kind of dystopian, not a perfect world, but not a completely destroyed one. This world that Callie lives in is in between, old people rule and young kids...

This is Not a Test is brilliant, just brilliant. I thought it would be a zombie apocalypse where the world ends and everyone dies except for the main character and her lover. That did happen, but not the way I expected. This classic plot has been distorted to create an...

Paranormal Romance about angels

I thought that I would hate Fallen much more than I do. I thought it would be that obsessive love throughout the entire book. But since it was between two guys, and all the other problems swirling inside the plot, I was able to enjoy the book much more than...
