(Textausgabe) had major thriller vibes Ooh I m just seeing now that this is the first book in a series Hmm idkow I feel about that I really do think that this book wrapped up perfectly No need to follow the characters any further unless the author Cut Loose: Jobless and Hopeless in an Unfair Economy has tons of wild plans uper sleeve Anyway back to what I was saying Alani Was Here huehue The plot was very suspenseful but rich and weaved with layer upon layer of subtext One of the best parts of this book isow the author used the great story as a platform to promote an important political agenda Spoiler alert but this book brushes strongly against the rape culture The Recruiter here in America I was getting major metoo vibes but in a way that willopefully CEO Muscle help inform young people that these things are not okay andopefully normalize speaking up about such thingsI also want to say that I cherish the way that the importance of friendship was ighlighted as well as the complexities of familyNow me gonna talk about the writing a little The story is told from the first person points of view of two very different sisters Ivy and Autumn I really enjoyed getting those two alternating POVs There were definitely less Autumn POVs but that s for the best because she ad such a strong voice and strong personality too much would Hawkes Prey Sonny Hawke Thriller have felt abrasive Iave literally no clue Get Over It Fab Life how old the author is but the voices read like authentic teen voices At least to me a 25 year old teenage wannabe lol The writing was strong and purposeful most especially the Autumn chapters and the overall tone that was used made the whole thing easy to read and compelling That s really about all Iave to say I loved the story I expect this book to do pretty well once it s released Sprinkled with all those nerdy references you got yourself a No Prisoners Star Wars The Clone Wars hit that most readers of YA can enjoy.
