I love that Jackie Morse Kessler always writes teens who are so easy to relate to. In the case of Billy, I think everyone has gone through a similar situation at some point in their lives, which made it super easy to connect with him and his story. I just love Jackie Morse Kessler‘s portrayal of Death – I think he’s one of my favorite characters in all of YA lit. He is such an interesting character – so charming and witty.
The plot of Loss was quite a bit different from the other two books in the series, which was really neat. I loved following the story, and seeing where characters from the prior two books might pop up. I could barely put this one down, I just flipped page after page to try to put together the puzzle that was Loss. I just love the idea of the Riders of the Apocalypse. The idea is so unique and original, and I like how it ties in with prominent issues for teens today.
Loss by Jackie Morse Kessler is one of those must reads. I found this book to have an addicting quality, and I did not want to put it down. I am so excited for book 4, Breathe, to see where that story leads the characters of the word of the Riders of the Apocalypse.
