A book I enjoyed, but needs two caveats. First, not sure about the audio book version. There are sections of comic book pages strewn throughout this. Which means a listener will miss both the art and any narrative elements carried by that art. Second, this is marketed as YA and I'm not at all c...

A fabulous YA novel about friendship not romance. This was a one-sitting, massive-grin-of-happiness-for-having-discovered-this-story read. Okay, where to start with the gushing. First off, you've got these two kids Libby and May exiled out of gym class who start making up stories together and so a b...

I ended up really liking this - it is a combination of book + some graphic panels. I have it in ebook, but would really recommend that it be purchased as a print book because of the format. It doesn't show up well on my kindle paperwhite - the print doesn't enlarge, and it is very tiny, and the comi...

(I really should stop reading other people’s reviews before writing my own. In this case, I noticed that nearly every reviewer who began with something like “I received an ARC of this minus the artwork” gave it a depressingly low score. Well, DUH.

I kept waiting for a twist or a betrayal but it's all very straightforward once May finds the...

This book starts off just like the book description tells you -- it's practically an outline of the first 40 pages. Somehow, even if all they were doing was fulfilling the book jacket copy, the opening chapters sucked me in more and more with each detail until the last sentence on page 35. That li...

I don't read much YA fiction, as I'm way past the target age group. However, I thoroughly enjoy Cherie Priest's books, so I was glad of the opportunity to review this one.May and Libby become an unlikely pair of best friends in a Seattle elementary school. Together, they invent Princess X, with May ...
