Year of the Beasts by Cecil Castellucci and Nate Powell is about sisters Tessa and Lulu who are ready to go to the annual summer carnival for rides, food and boys! This summer turns out to be different, they experience jealousy which starts a course of tragic events, testing their relationship.

Year of the Beasts is a beautiful story that at first I had trouble getting into. I absolutely love the gorgeous art work of Nate Powell and once finally into the story everything made sense. I loved the connection with Greek Mythology and the characters were well written. This was a very powerful roller coaster of emotions! Cecil Castellucci and Nate Powell did a wonderful job

Special Thanks to NetGalley and Macmillan Children's Publishing Group who provided me an e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
