Pale is one of those books you read in a sit. You probably won’t take more than half an hour to read it because it catches you from the first word. Well written with great characters and a great outcome.

An original story that felt short at the end, with everything a YA novel need, friendship, romance, bad guys and an interesting background. The idea of a serum that allows you to return from death and live forever is a great.

The main character, Jed, is a teenager who sees himself in the worst position ever. He has to deal with pretty rough changes and deal with his worst nightmare. In only 70 pages he learns all the lessons that generally would take more than 300. You don’t need more than a few pages to teach the real value of friendship, of accepting yourself and to realize that karma exist and is there waiting to give you what you deserve.

Maybe in a longer novel we could read more about the characters and get to know them more, but I think that for a short novel is creates a believable environment with real characters. Sometimes is better to have a good book than a longer one.

Overall a fun recommendable read for young and adults as well.

(I got a copy from Netgalley).
