This Is Not a Test
This is Not a Test - Courtney Summers

So I liked the characters in this one, and Summers’ taut, elegaic prose really works well here. But I’m just fundamentally not very interested in zombie books, I guess. I don’t feel the urgency and sense of stakes, and so while the conflict between the students and the exploration of Sloane’s reactions kept me reading, it didn’t ever complete engage me.

All the Rage - Courtney Summers

Hard read, wonderfully written. I think Romy is the most tender & vulnerable of Summers’ characters (that I’ve read, anyway) and I found myself hurting so much for her. It’s really all about fallout and how you keep going. I think what I found most extraordinary was the way Summers gives us Romy’s point of view without justifying all her thoughts and actions, but also without condemning them.

Some Girls Are
Some Girls Are - Courtney Summers

I didn’t connect with this one quite as much as I did with Cracked Up to Be, and I’m not 100% sure why. Nevertheless, I really like Summers’ writing and will continue my read through her backlist.

Cracked Up to Be - Courtney Summers

My first Courtney Summers book! I KNOW! It’s so good, such an interesting complex look at a character who has been the villain in many a YA book. I’m sure there are readers out there who hate Parker, but I loved her prickly, slightly-evil-but-never-as-evil-as-she-wants-to-be self.
