  • "Worth Reading"

    Overall

    I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover so I judge them by their title! Although this book wasn't what I expected from the title I'd recomend reading it, it brings up some really interesting topics and it's written with some great characters and an amazing plot that keeps you hooked the whole way through!



    I started listening to this at about 6pm and I didn't stop listening until It had finished!



    Really enjoyed this and recommend it!

    "Addictive - better than regular teen lit"

    Overall

    I was intrigued as I had previously read a Donnelly book before and I am interested in the French Revolution so I thought I'd give it a go. After initially thinking I'd made a mistake and wondered into a morbid teenage trash book I found that in no time at all I was completely sucked into the story.

    I soon became obsessed much like the central character Andi with listening to find out more. I drove through and from work listening to it, I stayed up until 1 in the morning listening to it - it gripped me that much.

    Unlike other books in the genre I truly like and empathise with the characters and it is so beautifully written that you feel like you are actually there with them. The book is about obsession and addiction and Donnelly manages to pull off something truly amazing by getting this across by drawing in the readers in the same way as Andi and Alex.

  • "Great listen"

    0 of 0 helpful votes

    I think that listening to this book is the perfect way of reading the book as it is made clear who is thinking what which was previously a bit sketchy due to the fact that Clay constantly interrupts Hannah's voice with his own thoughts. Overall, this book made me think. The characters in this book felt so real and Clay's reactions I felt were spot on, okay so the ending was a little cheesy but I'm willing to overlook that. At the end of the day, this is just a well-told story.

    Fifteen-year-old Jeff wakes up on New Year's Day to find himself in the hospital. Make that the psychiatric ward. With the nut jobs. Clearly, this is all a huge mistake. Forget about the bandages on his wrists and the notes on his chart. Forget about his problems with his best friend, Allie, and her boyfriend, Burke. Jeff's perfectly fine, perfectly normal, not like the other kids in the hospital with him. Now they've got problems.

    Cameron Post feels a mix of guilt and relief when her parents die in a car accident. Their deaths mean they will never learn the truth she eventually comes to - that she's gay. Orphaned, Cameron comes to live with her old-fashioned grandmother and ultraconservative aunt Ruth. When she's eventually outed, her aunt sends her to God's Promise, a religious conversion camp that is supposed to "cure" her homosexuality. At the camp, Cameron comes face to face with the cost of denying her true identity.
