I was captivated from the very first page and couldn’t stop reading. Like the character Jenai, I am constantly searching for books that transport me to another world, and Kilroy has mastered the art.

When I opened up The 17 I was thrilled to be sucked right into the intense new world that Zack, a lonely boy from Maine has been transported into. The reader feels like part of the 17 as Zack struggles to adapt and understand the new world he has been thrust into and to master the group dynamics, in

While I did enjoy the book, I still felt it left a lot to be desired. I liked how the characters were put into their different situations and how they tried to adapt to each scenario, however the reasons for subjecting them to their "tests" and the eventual outcome of the needs of these tests weren't justified. I was also left feeling a bit empty at the end of the book. I wanted to know what happened to the characters once they returned. I felt there was no closure.

The last thing I had an issue

I almost put this book down after the first few chapters, getting annoyed that I was just reading an alien version of The Maze Runner. Am I glad I decided to read on! This story turned out to be very creative and moving. I was so into it that when I reached the next to last scene of the book-the culmination of the story-I almost stood up and yelled. And by the way, this is much, much better than The Maze Runner, first few chapters not withstanding.

I've never been a fan of alien books but since I loved Nine Meals I wanted to see what this one was all about. I wasn't disappointed. The story was unique and very gripping. Like nothing I've ever read before! Can't wait for the next book!

While this wasn't a terrible book to read, I felt like there wasn't a good answer for why things happened the way they did. Maybe I just didn't read deep enough, but it was lost on me. Kinda a little too much like The Hunger Games at points too. Oh well, still kind of fun.

I've read other books with the same basic premise that were much better. All good ideas, but pretty shallow treatment.

It was ok. I liked that it was bloody and romantic at the same time. You don't find that a lot in books.
