A new, refreshing spin on the old girl meets boy story with great plot twists that are unpredictable and exciting. Deals with low self image and overcoming the evil inside. Loved it!!

Do you know why I love Johnny Worthen’s books? It’s because they pull you right into the story and then they keep you hostage until you’ve finished the book. It doesn’t matter what book of his you read and what genre they happen to fall into, you’re always right at the center of things. That, my friends, is the mark of a truly great author.

Instead of reviewing each book individually (as I did with Eleanor), I decided to rather write a bit of a mini essay on why I love the trilogy in a whole. It’

Loved this trilogy! It was a lovely new angle on the supernatural YA thing that's popular at the moment (no vampires or werewolves here! not that I don't love those stories too) I loved the character of Eleanor so much. She was really relatable despite being "other." Highly recommend! ...more

(Disclosure: I received a free advance copy of David from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.)

The Basics:

After surviving the collision of every kind of angry mob Jamesford has to offer, Eleanor has been careful not to break the illusion that she died in the flames, so as not to bring any more pain and death to the people who dare to be kind to her. After months in hiding, however, she’s drawn back to Jamesford once more. To watch, to connect, or to say goodbye, she hasn’t decided

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this series. Eleanor was amazing, and Celeste was a heart-wrenching, action-packed cliffhanger (Ahhh!), so I have waited impatiently for David to come out. This third and final book did not disappoint me.
After assuming the shape of a cat and being held captive for months, Eleanor thinks she is beginning to forget what it means to be a human, to be Eleanor. She misses her true love, David, and she worries about the good people she left behind. So, she changes bac

Excellent ending to a great series! Eleanor is able to learn more about some of the traumatic incidents in her distant past and learn to put aside the prejudices she had developed because of them. She is able to come back to Jamesford and see the impact her "death" had on the town and its people. And she is able to see David's family and discover the toll it has taken on them. But the evil Zalrnik is still after her wanting to use her as a lab rat to discover everything there is to know about he ...more

Johnny Worthen delivers a fast-paced and intense conclusion to the UNSEEN trilogy with DAVID. Eleanor faces ever more challenges. She encounters both new and old friends, as well as enemies. The author incorporates Native American folklore into his story with the skinwalker element. He explores the world of an outcast from an intriguing perspective, while weaving a teen romance into the mix. Modern day corruption, bigotry, and greed all become part of the tapestry, but the star of the story (tri ...more

If my friends and family take anything away from my reviewing books on this site, I hope they will give this series a chance. The first book is "Elenor", and I love this series. It is great. It has a lot of good things to say and has a great moral. The plot/story line is fantastic, the characters really well written. I love this series. ...more
