4.5 stars This story is told from the perspective of a smart, dreamy boy who's buzzing with hormones and focused on his sport, but can't quite let go of his feelings for his childhood sweetheart. It treats love--of all kinds--and loss with exquisite ...more

4.5 stars This revisionist retelling of Lady Jane Grey's brief reign and romance shouldn't work--but it does! It's deliriously dotty and clever, with affectionate nods to great absurdist historical comedies like THE PRINCESS BRIDE, Monty Python, and ...more

If Regina George wanted to be Homecoming Queen, there'd be hell to pay for anyone who got in her way.

This is pretty much the premise of the WINNING, which is immensely readable and keeps you on your toes. Just when you think one girl is about to swi

Here's the backstory: I had the chance to request this book twice, I chose not to, but it ended up getting sent to me anyway. And I'm so glad it did! It's so different from what I expected.

I tend to avoid glitzy stories about Hollywood like the plag

After an uneven start, this became surprisingly entertaining, though it's not a "good" book by any stretch of the imagination, mostly because of the abundance of humorless, meant-to-be shocking sex.

But it's enjoyably sociopathic (or psychopathic, de

I don't usually DNF something as early as 15 pages, but the writing is so self-conscious and mannered that I don't have the patience to sit through hundreds more pages of unnatural prose and dialogue. Plus some of it doesn't even make sense! "Her hai ...more

4.5 stars So freaking funny. There's a hysterical moment in this book when the main character is described as being "paralytic with giggles" and that is exactly how I felt! I kept trying to smother my laughter so I wouldn't wake Mr.Darling.

4.5 stars LOVE. Man, this is turning out to be a good year for funny contemporary YA.

Recommended if you liked Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, though I think this actually has more substance and wit to it.

Review to come.

2.5 stars I've liked this series since the beginning, but what a soap opera this story turned out to be. Dragging out the drama and adding a million side stories and histories just made everything seem repetitive and melodramatic, Eva and Gideon's re ...more

“I replay the scene again and again, the broken mashed-up face looming over me, the knowledge between the two of us that I'd done it. That act of kindness is still more unfathomable to me than any cruelty.”
Stephanie Oakes, The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly

Matthew Neill Null
“He lifted the thrashing muskellunge, held it up for the world to see, and let the thrash go out of its body in a final, lurking shudder. He had pierced it through, a third of the way behind its head. Pale out of the water, all dull greenish-bronze and insipid vermiculations, except for reddish fins that reminded Henry of his mother's hard tack candy. It had the teeth of a nasty little dog. Sarsen slid its body down off the staff, leaving a watery braid of blood. Off the pike, its wound seemed to close. He lifted it by the tail and hollered.

Sarsen could do anything.”
Matthew Neill Null, Allegheny Front
