Read from March 28 to April 16, 2012

Forgive the author's attempt to draft off the Hunger Games. Superficially, they might sound similar but this YA thriller crafts a completely believable, weirdly timeless Irish island where they race killer kelpies. Stiefvater can write scenes, small town intrigue, and weather, and our twin leads are compelling even if the dueling 1st person narrator trick fizzles. You almost forget that, in the end, it's a horse book.
