There are so many elements of this series that young teens, and adults can relate to. I've listened to them all, and I really enjoyed them.
I know a lot of adults are saying that there shouldn't be BJ's and sex issues in a young teen novel, but I like that Zoe knows about sex, knows other girls are doing it, but she doesn't feel the need to do it, just to be like everyone else.
I mean, I knew all about sex long before my mother knew it was an issue for me, and I was pretty sheltered. I can't believe there are any 12 year old's out there that know less than I did.
Anyway, I loved the whole series, and I didn't love that Zoe had like 3 or 4 love interests at first, but I see now, they all have a part to play in her future.
Can't wait for the next installment!
I was interested in trying this book because of the popularity of the Twilight series. As many others have said, the first part seemed slow, but the book became more interesting later. Somewhat formulaic with the teen girl-rivalry thing, and the motley group of almost-outcasts dethroning the beautiful-in-crowd, but formula can be a satisfying read to many teens.
I was a bit stunned with the b*** j** scenes follwing so soon after "This is Audible Kids." Some re-thinking needs to be done there.
I kept forgetting it was about vampires since so many references were wiccan.
And I know this is picky, but can't an author or her editorial staff use "lie" and "lay" correctly? I don't mean as dialogue from the characters, but when it appears in narration.
All-in-all, not sensational, but not terrible either. It's worth reading one more book in the series.
I'm 25 yrs old, have listened to all 5 books, good plots... but we need to look at Zoe concentrating on just one boy and minimize the excessive talking to her self.
I very much enjoyed this book, but think that it should not be in the Audible Kids section. In my opinion, it is for those at least 16 years old or older. There are some situations that most people younger than that are probably not ready to handle. I have listened to all of this series that is available, and although I would recommend it to older teens and young adults, I would not like for my younger teenager to read it just yet.
This was a really good book. Can't wait to listen to the other books in the series. The narration and different voices keep you interested.
The story is good. For the most part the narrator is good but she mispronounces words a lot.
It's an interesting concept, and the world is pretty creative; it has a pretty good flow. However, the audio skips several times, and quite possibly could have been edited better.
I love true crime. YA books and I didn'tuse too but seriese. Vampire, harry potter, especailly dystopian novels.
Starts out very slow. I almost gave up. It got a little weird but I hung in there and it was worth it. I've been listening to the rest of the series and they are great.
This book is written about a teenaged girl who hates Christianity because they are intolerant and she just hates that. She equally glorifies without much explanation anything unwhite, unChristian and unhetero and (um...a little forumlaic, already) because the race, culture and religion she was born in to is hateful, you know, it just is, everybody knows it, we don't have to discuss it in any detail. I would bet money she hates cheerleaders as well. Just because. You know, like, they're all so.. you know .. makeup and doing boys to be popular, and they, like, hate me, just because, I mean, hate them.. I mean.. I'm mean ...It reads as if the main character wrote the book herself.
Im not sure about these books yet. This one is very slow at first but the ending is great. The narrator isnt very good at all. She is breathy in all her words and characters. But the books themselves are good!
