  • "Fabulous!"

    Overall

    Even though I normally can't stand paranormal or fantasy elements, I loved this book. The focus stays mainly on the relationship between Evie and Jack - who is the most gorgeous hero since ever.



    I thought the narrator was excellent, too. She really mastered the French and Cajun accents, and did a good job of differentiating between characters without this intruding on the story.



    My only complaint? The sequel isn't out yet!

  • "Best Book I've "Read" All Year"

    Overall

    What a fabulous and well-written story! I have discovered a wonderful new YA author.

    Not just for teens, this story is funny, poignant and speaks deeply about the struggle of growing up with a depressed parent. I loved the true-to-life evocation of the teens, and the story-telling voice was spot-on. For anyone 13 and up, I would say.

    (Great narrator, too!)

    Story

    I am so glad I downloaded this book. It is, hands-down, the best book I have read/heard in ages! I found myself wishing it would never end.

    It is truly hilarious while still delivering biting satire on our culture and the roles, expectations and double standards assigned to girls in particular.

    The author reads the book herself and her delivery is an absolute treat, especially her delivery of the differing US accents.

    Do yourself a favour and get this one - you will not be disappointed!

    The 50 contestants in the Miss Teen Dream pageant thought this was going to be a fun trip to the beach, where they could parade in their state-appropriate costumes and compete in front of the cameras. But sadly, their airplane had another idea, crashing on a desert island and leaving the survivors stranded with little food, little water, and practically no eyeliner. What's a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program - or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan - or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up?

    It's one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It's quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time. Welcome to finishing school. Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is a great trial to her poor mother. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper manners - and the family can only hope that company never sees her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. So she enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. But Sophronia soon realizes the school is not quite what her mother might have hoped.

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts.

    I wondered what my life would have been like if we had never moved to the ho-dunk town of Spring Valley, Illinois. Sure the internet service was splotchy, there was nothing but miles of wheat fields, and I probably wouldn't be faced with death at every corner. My only neighbor in this god-forsaken town was...well there really was only one to describe him, hot as hell. With his sinful dark looks, unusually silver eyes, and kissable lips, there was something about him that was more than meets the eye.
