A great mystery/thriller read...

Storybook, Inc. by Parker Pace is a superbly written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters and settings. The threads of storytelling are expertly woven in this young adult psychological thriller that will guarantee the attention of the reader.

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myse

After Mica Psmith is kicked out of school, she is shipped away to a mysterious boarding school. However, she never reaches her destination. Lost after a crazed train robbery, she comes to confide in Roman, a mysterious boy, whose high intellect matches her own.


The characters in this story were few but memorable.

Mica Psmith is smart, suspicious of others, and generally depressed, struggling to cope with her mental health, just like her father before her.

Roman, by contrast, is a m

Storybook, Inc. is an extremely interesting book with an amazing twist. Parker Pace outdoes herself here! It's the number one example to not to judge a book by its cover. Storybook, Inc. is now one of my favorite books and I would recommend it to any fan of action and thriller.

Show-Stopping YA Novel … With a Scary Good Twist Ending

Storybook, Inc. by Parker Pace is the story of Mica Psmith, a high school senior, who is inducted into a weird what-appears-to-be-but-might-not-be game. The game runner is a company called Storybook, Inc.—and about whom little is known—and their motto is “We fix things that are broken.” Sadly, nothing is what it seems for poor Mica and her companion, the handsome, if obnoxious, Roman (who may or may not be one of the bad guys) and who says

An extraordinary and compelling novel that is engrossing reading.

Highly intelligent, suffering from depression, and kicked out of school, Mica Psmith is offered a deal which sounds suspicious to her but her mother and her stepfather think it is a good idea. Against her better judgement, or her choice, she goes for an evaluation by a doctor to determine whether she is competent and ready for the mysterious training alternative that will in any event allow her to graduate from school and then rece

I was approached by the author with this book. While the cover left me underwhelmed, I was intrigued by the premise and had to pick it up! I expected to pace myself over the weekend with a thrilling but short read, and was left swiping through the pages at such a speed that I couldn’t put it down. This book was the perfect length for my weekend off and the plot was enough to make me feel like I had more than enough pages to get through and keep myself entertained.
It’s no secret that I am a love

Opening the book with the scene where Mica Psmith (P is silent) is being expelled from school certainly grips your attention. The fact that the principal conveniently has an option for her to complete school on time, a selective and secretive boarding school. The brochure is creepy, as is the feeling Mica gets from the principal, however, her mother and stepfather are on board with getting her enrolled and her fate is sealed. But is this truly a selective boarding school? Or something more sinis ...more

“Storybook Inc.” follows Mica Psmith, a troubled high school senior who has experienced loss in her past and is struggling to move forward. Mica’s mom and step dad are introduced to possible help for Mica in the form of a boarding school called Storybook Inc. Mica boards a train ride on her way to the boarding school, but things begin to go terribly wrong as she finds herself in the middle of a series of events that don’t quite seem right.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. The story was well paced and

This thriller book was a great read. The pacing was spot on as well as the mystery. It was a book I couldn’t put down. The character development was also really well done. Mica and Roman were both very interesting characters. However, I will say, Mica was my favorite because I really liked how strong she was throughout the story. I won’t give spoilers away, but I will say if you like a good mystery with characters that keep you guessing, then this book needs to be your next read. I definitely re ...more

Never read a book that got a person so inside the emotional change of the character. Also putting a twist inside a twist and with a bullet proof vest. Wow!

Very interesting

This book is nothing you would expect or you read before. The story is twisted at first ! Her dreams , or is what o thought so, at the doctor office during her initial visit reminded me of my dreams when I am overly tiered. Highly recommended .
