Some secrets are meant to stay secret forever. Just ask Pandora.

"You watch the world. I'm not even sure you live in it."

It's so weird how nearly every 2015 YA book that promises fast-paced action and/or fantasy turns into a story about that guy (or guys) with the beautiful eyes, and yet most YA books pitched as

I cannot decide how I want to rate Never Never: Part Two.

On the one hand, as with part one, I found this book to be written in an extremely compelling way. I found it easy to sprint through chapter after chapter, unlocking more questions and mysterie

Holy shit, this was entertaining. Not perfect - there were some issues I had - but seriously, who cares when a book is this unputdownable?

“This is the way the series ends:
Not with a bang, but a whimper.”


― T.S. Emily
