Awakening (Chasing Yesterday, #1) by Robin Wasserman Betrayal (Chasing Yesterday, #2) by Robin Wasserman Truth (Chasing Yesterday, #3) by Robin Wasserman

It's about a girl who has no memory of her life pre-accident, or if what happened to her really was an accident, or whether or not she caused the explosion... It's awesome! (MC's 13 years old--younger than young adult but it's great!!)

Roseanne (rschmread) | 41 comments Betrayal is even better than Awakening! <3
I'm not going to spoil the plot. It's a must read. It's Maximum Ride meets Nancy Drew... or something. Like if Stephen King wrote a YA/Children's mystery/paranormal trilogy this would be it.

I'm currently reading Robin Wasserman's Skinned series. But I did see this series and have put it on my TBR list.

I have read Skinned and Crashed... I've got Wired on my TBR list. It's great, like a dig-your-finger-nails-into-your-skin kind of great.

Roseanne (rschmread) | 41 comments Truth is a great end. It wasn't all laid out in pretty pictures for JD to solve. It was a fiery internal as well as external struggle for the real truth amongst all the lies. It was real, theatrical even (I could clearly see everything happening/unfolding before my eyes...well before my mind's eye, that is). This series is solid and very appropriate for younger readers. (I'd say better for a 13-and-younger reader than, say, the famous Twilight Saga). There is much action and killing but the ending is strong and moral, all and all a great, solid and quick read.
