There Were Fabulous Parts... And Bleh Parts

Unputdownable! (For Realz, guys)

Today’s review is about a book I am super excited about for many, many reasons (if you’re bored with backstories, just scroll down). First of all, it’s Michael Grant! Super talented author of the Gone series. Second of all, it’s been so long since I’d read a thrilling, gross boy...
