Well thanks very much for writing this book because I am a rock star with my teen Grand, the quintessential gamer girl apparently, or so she tells me. The minute I saw this book I knew it was perfect for her. I was not wrong.
However, I had made a promise to her mother not a reader by the way. That when I gave her the Kindle for the big 13, I would screen all the books before I sent them to her kindle so I agreed.
I was delighted from about page five this is an exciting and fast paced book that in my opinion is perfect for teenagers. I found nothing I would deem offensive or not age appropriate for my now fifteen year old. She was born with my love of books thank heavens I am particular about what she reads. Young and current is good schlock not so much.
This book leans so far from the schlock it is unbelievable I was very surprised the dialogue is on task and moves the story forward with sometimes an alarming rate for an old lady. But my Grand tell me it keeps her attention and then some.
I like the dynamic of the sisters one being a rebel and one being the level headed one, but what really like is all the subtext the author added to the sisters in their dialogue and the subtle relationship that unfolds before us.
It should be noted there are a whole bunch of great moments in this book and I know that if you are looking for that special girl gift this one won’t let you down. My Grand also signed up to be notified of new releases by this author that is how I know it is a grand slam with her too.
I’m giving this a five because what YaYa does not want to hear “you rock Yaya this book is so cool.” Does it get any better than that, I don’t think so. PS this is one of the only audios I have listened to that the narrator is really good too.
