'Millard was kneeling in the water, dazed, blood running down his torso. For the first time I could see the true shape of his body, painted red. Emma took him by the arm. "Millard! Are you all right? Say something!" "I must apologise," he said. "It seems I've gone and gotten myself shot." Jaco...

I was delighted with this book for the first 120 pages. The cynically weary teenaged voice of the narrator was perfect and I was sticking post-it notes all over the place to mark passages that struck a chord with me. Characters and settings sprang to life. But this was sadly brief. Once the real act...

As a child, Jacob loved hearing the stories his grandfather shared with him. As he got older, he no longer believed them to be true.

I finished this on Thursday, but hadn't had a chance to do the write up! I feel like this book was a little bit of a missed opportunity. I liked it fine, but I wasn't overwhelmed by it. It felt a bit like the author worked so hard to fit the quirky photographs into the book, that he ended up negle...

This is a fascinating story! I loved it! I took a six hour road trip (then six hours home) and this was the perfect book to be stuck in a car with. The writing was fantastic. I was very surprised to learn that this is Riggs first novel. He writes with a clarity and ease and has such unique ideas, th...

I really liked this one. It was different from a lot of the YA that I’ve read. It kind of put me in the mind of Percy Jackson at the very beginning, but it is a bit more mature. It has mystery, time travel, monsters, children with unusual powers and a gothic-like feeling. Most of my friends seem...
