A Powerful and Thought Provoking Read

It isn't always easy to love a book that talks about a dark subject, but Rissi captivated me with her story and characters, particularly her ability to illustrate the slippery slope of abuse. We often hear people talk about how they would never allow IT to happen to them, but...

A Thought Provoking Read

Resurrecting Sunshine is my favorite type of books--it's a story that makes you think. And it lingers with you long after you've closed the cover. On it's surface, Adam may seem like he's caught in the middle of a debate about the ethics of cloning (interesting in and of itself)...

Not What I Expected...BETTER!

This one had me guessing! At first I thought it was going to be a contemporary story and then some mysterious things started happening. No spoilers from me, though. :o) Just know this book danced back and forth over an intriguing line between the supernatural and the superhero. Looking forward...

Stayed Up Late--Couldn't Put it Down

I fell in love with impulsive Rosie and her posse of nerdtastic boys. This was one of those special books that hits your funny bone and you soft spots all at once. If you adore Kasie West's contemporaries, you'll love HOW MY SUMMER WENT UP IN FLAMES! ...

Hidden Surprises!

The Year of Lightning had lots of hidden surprises--exciting world building, emotional depth, romance, humor, die-hard friendships, science and even some kick butt fighting. It was a very fun read and I absolutely can't wait to see what Dalton does next.

Why I Want My Teen Boys to Read This Book...

I adore Fitzpatrick's writing so I anticipated loving What I Thought Was True--what I didn't expect was how much I want my teenage boys to read this book in order to better understand the complexities that young ladies and men experience when navigating sexuality, desire, confidence, slut shaming, expectations, mistakes,...

A Timely Tale from the Past

I've recently read I Am Malala and I've been inspired by her fight to empower and educate girls around the world. So, it was a delightful surprise to read Blue Birds and find the same powerful message of worth and strength woven into this moving piece of historical fiction. ...

I Longed for a Poet's Corner

I would have given anything to have a Poet's Corner in high school. Stone should be so proud of writing such a thoughtful book. I was captivated until the very last word.

Unexpected Surprises

I connected with UNTAMED in a slightly different way than most of the reviewers. Like them, I was really excited by this new dystopian series. I love a good dystopian! But as I read it, I couldn't help but see the connection between the escapism found in consuming augmenters and...

Things Can Change in a Snap

I loved Pixelated! It totally made me want to be a better photographer. And I adored Les and the tension between him and Piper--steamy and adorable. This was fun read that also tackled some heavy issues, making it a very well rounded book. One you don't want to miss....
