"What do you want from me?" he asks. What I want from every person in my life, I want to tell him, More. Abandoned by her mother on Jellicoe Road when she was eleven, Taylor Markham, now seventeen, is finally being confronted with her past. But as the reluctant leader of her boarding school dorm, there isn't a lot of time for introspection. And while Hannah, the closest adult Taylor has to family, has disappeared, Jonah Griggs is back in town, moody stares and all. In this absorbing story by Melina Marchetta, nothing is as it seems and every clue leads to more questions as Taylor tries to work out the connection between her mother dumping her, Hannah finding her then and her sudden departure now, a mysterious stranger who once whispered something in her ear, a boy in her dreams, five kids who lived on Jellicoe Road eighteen years ago, and the maddening and magnetic Jonah Griggs, who knows her better than she thinks he does. If Taylor can put together the pieces of her past, she might just be able to change her future.

2.5 Jellicoe Road
This book has phenomenal reviews on Goodreads, so I guess I’m in the minority for not loving it. Seventeen-year-old Taylor is the leader of the secret “territory wars” that happen every year between the students at her boarding school, the teenagers in the nearby town, and the Cadets who camp near...

2.0 I have no idea why so many love this book
Everybody loves this book. I have absolutely no idea why. It annoyed me so much I feared for the health of my poor e-reader, as it was close to being hurled across the room several times. This was at least twice as long as it needed to be, it was freaking obvious who all the grown-ups in Taylor's ...

4.5 Review: Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
I have books collecting dust on my shelf that I tell myself over and over again that I need to read. "Today will be the day," I tell myself. Instead, I pick up a book I've read numerous times but still feels like a fire truck rammed itself into my stomach each time I reach the ending. Jellicoe R...
