Pleasantly Surprised

I rarely read YA books but this one grabbed me from the beginniing. kage was my favorite and he ws developed well. Some of the thing could have been more developed. when I think about a YA book I don't imagine the developement that was included in this story. imagine a strange storm coving your high school and your whole life is changed and turned upside down. I even liked the narrator. I may read the next book in this series

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review via audiobook blast

An Excellent Short YA Story

For most kids who discover on their own or are finally told about a long hidden family secret, It’s usually something that revolves around a criminal act by a family member that may or may not have led to prison. It might also be about adoption or infidelity leading to a previously unknown half brother or half sister. In “Shaded: Colored Lies,” the main character, a somewhat petulant teen girl named Avery, discovers something no one could have possibly imagined about her family and herself. From there, the story takes off. “Shaded: Colored Lies” is a novella and volume one of what I assume will be a successful, ongoing YA series. My only complaint is that it’s so good, yet so short, I wish there was an omnibus edition I could get hold of to finish the story. I hate having to wait for book after book to come out in order to finish a story.

Rob Saladino is an excellent narrator and a great choice for this story. He just adds more value to an already good story. Although I’m not bothered by it, I was surprised that the author, RE Danielle, chose a male narrator for a story with a female protagonist. Although I am an adult and probably not the target audience for this book, I think any adult will find it enjoyable.

Finally this audio book was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audio Book Blast.
