Surprising and Enjoyable
As a middle school teacher, I am constantly looking for new great YA books. This is one. The characters are real and compelling, and it does not have a Disney ending.
I enjoyed the interaction between the teens. The fact that well into the plot and their "friendship" they were still wary of one another and distrustful. It felt like real teens.
The reading of this book was beautiful. Ms. Stairs sold the trendy "glossy" as well as the dark anger in the characters.
I searched for the next book, The Forgetting Curve, and was ready to buy it. It is not here yet. Hopefully soon.
