Two Halves Whole

Seventeen-year-old Ryu Debiru thought he had everything under control, thought he knew exactly where his life was headed after graduation (assuming he makes it to graduation).

That was until the girl he hated became the girl he could no longer ignore.

Perhaps his secret life is no longer something he can keep secret.

Or maybe it is.

Although, it seems like the entire city is

Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this in exchange of an honest review

I like reading for new authors every now and then because I believe everyone deserves a chance. Sometimes I am happy doing that, sometimes I am not. Well, this time I am glad that it worked ^-^

This is the second part in the Hafu Sans Halo, Judge by the Cover being the first.
To be honest, the story at first sounded cliched and it took me some pages to get into, but there was a nice plot twist that I didn't

I got this pretty awesome 5-star review from Jack Magnus of Readers' Favorite, so I thought I'd share it here:

"While the author gives enough background information to allow this book to be read on its own, I would advise that readers begin with the first book in the series, Judge by the Cover, to get the full impact of this engrossing and powerful tale. Haruna was still processing the fact that Ryu was not at all the irresponsible bad boy she had imagined him to be before their joint English pro

How do you cope with the new understanding of life when you decide to find a meaning to it? Will you be able to embrace the new reality unfold in front of you or a hate the knowledge you have a gained from it?

Written by Melissa Abigail, this story unfolds the hidden past of Haruna, a biracial teenager who lived most of her life fearing rejection but, slowly learnt to embrace who she is once she understood it from her new friend's perspective. In this sequel of Judge by Cover, she and her friend

I definitely enjoyed reading the second installment in this series. I tend to get somewhat frustrated with slower works, such as the first piece, but this book managed to bring a lot more in depth and intrigue. In the last book, we left off right as Ryu and Haruna were making amends, but things never stay perfect for long. Ryu's path as a young gangster is certain to mess things up sometime.

There's something to be said about how the book manages to address racism. In the past, young adult litera

Two Halves Whole by Melissa Abigail
The sequel to Judge by the Cover is perhaps even better than the first because the intrigue continues. I could not wait for the second part, and the author did not disappoint.

Thrown into a world of privilege on one hand, and loss on the other, the teens struggle not only with issues of school, friends, and relationships but gangs and danger. Who can they trust if not the adults in their lives? It’s a difficult situation made real and more emotional when they be

Melissa Abigail’s sequel, “Two Halves Whole,” in the Half Sans Solo Series is well written, intriguing and thought provoking. The reader is reunited with Ryu and Haruna, two teenagers who find they are more alike than they initially thought. As their connection deepens this places them in a precarious situation that also unlocks secrets from their past. The book is fast paced with many unanticipated twists and turns which keeps the reader engaged until the end. Although there are currently only ...more

Haruna and Ryu,very interesting characters from seemingly two different backgrounds.Once enemies,then something happened that changed their attitudes towards each other.
How do they then mingle and match their different upbringing to become one and fight on the same side?it's not an easy task to accomplish.

I enjoyed book two in this series. I feel like book one and two should be combined into one book. Not much happens in book one until the end but book two is much more fast paced. I enjoyed how everything came together and the flashbacks into what happened to the kids and their parents in the past.

Given that I read the first book - Judge by the Cover, I was so intrigued by the themes of the series, and I got very pleased with the latter. The author's honest groundbreaking presentation of the story is so dazzling and triggering towards powerful regards.

I will put it down shortly, in specie regarding the rollicking wit amongst Ryu and Haruna: I find it extraordinarily in the spot, hilarious, brilliant, and charming! I am thoroughly swooned by the perfect balance amongst thee of meet cute an
