YA / Sci-Fi
My Review: 4 Stars
Rockin' cover, but that's besides the point. This one convinced me of what I didn't think possible - I'm a YA fan. Yup. Me.
I've read a handful, but this book got to me. The emotions of Ms. Swank's writing nabbed my attention & empathy from the get-go & didn't release me till near the end. That's where my less than 5 star review occured.
But, on to the usuals & you'll learn why.
Yummies: Empathy. Emotions. Hooked. I had no idea a sci-fi element existed till it occurred. A good book suddenly became excellent, IMO.
Typical love triangle, but the fact that *SPOILER ALERT* the 2 guys kinda morphed into 3 ...????? Really stinkin' cool.
Yuckies: The climactic moment near the end of this book felt off. There is no violence (other than the bullying) till the ending, and suddenly Julia, the MC, *SPOILER ALERT* shoots a dude with a handgun - between the eyes.
Um ... Don't think so. For this scene alone I dropped that stellar 5* rating to a 4*.
Recommend: Of course. And I can't wait for November's next installment!!!
