Blue Rabbit, a YA portal fantasy by Jimena I. Novaro, chronicles the adventures of five teenagers who cross over into an alien world from Knoxville, TN. Their crossing comes with consequences, and the five suddenly find themselves struggling to save both worlds while keeping themselves alive.

I really enjoyed that the novel starts in the middle of the story, enhancing the mystery. The book begins with the five teenagers already in trouble because of their discovery of this new world. The eldritch

Blue Rabbit is a young adult urban fantasy about an interesting clique of friends: Haley, her brother Dorian, Erika, Nathan, and Sandra. I love the opening scene in the school cafeteria where Haley and Erika bicker over how much they’ve (not) eaten and Haley builds battlements with toothpicks. It’s a great introduction to the group dynamics. Haley is the glue.

Haley could feel all her friends around her. Sandra’s knee pressed against her leg; Dorian’s shoulder brushed hers; Nathan sprawled out ac

4.75 stars, rounded up to 5

A thrilling, imaginative indie read! Blue Rabbit was excellent, beginning to end. The story follows five friends who, after a school-mate goes missing, are blamed for his disappearance. But what the other kids at school don't know is there's another world connected to their own; a magical world that until recently, wasn't frightening but enchanting.

Beyond that, I won't say more about the plot. What I will focus on is how beautifully written this book was. The narrative

A unique young adult fantasy story with multiple characters...

Blue Rabbit is an intriguing tale that follows a group of school friends who discover a gateway that leads to another world. As the story opens we learn that they have been visiting this place hidden in the Knoxville trees that seems like a forest but is a world totally different to their own full of creatures and immersive imagination by the author. A school kid called Mike follows this group one night and is seemingly captured by th

I flew threw this book! A very unique urban fantasy with a portal to another world. It kept me guessing with twists and turns. The story throws you right into the middle of the action. The five friends have already discovered the portal to another world, explored it a little, and found out its dangers when another boy from their school follows them into the forest, then gets kidnapped by the Creatures--and suddenly our protagonists are blamed for his murder! So they're already struggling to figu ...more

Loved this story.

For a first book it was fantastic. It took me forever to find it but I was determined. I have read her other books and they were fantastic and magical and all the reasons I have always loved reading. Jimena I can't wait for you to write more. Thankyou.

Jimena Novaro always knew she would be a writer. She wrote her first stories before she could spell and hasn't stopped since. She was born and raised by wildlife biologists in the arid steppe of Neuquén Province, Argentina, identifying stool samples, dreaming up other worlds, and climbing mountains without her pants (that one time). She recently graduated with a major in Creative Writing from Warr ...more

“His grip slackened. His last breath rustled her hair. She felt his soul release its hold on the strands of the spiderweb that connected them, and it was like falling asleep in a monster's lair--frightened of the dark, but too tired to keep going.” 0 likes
