Here is another review written as if I wrote it for School Library Journal. Between this and Bones & All I wanted to write a positive review and a more critical review. This is the more critical one. I have not read Ready Player One yet, so sue me, but I will definitely still be giving that one a try.
One thing I wanted to add before the review, I listened to the audiobook version of this and Wil Wheaton absolutely made a book that wasn’t my favorite still interesting to listen to! He is a wonderful narrator!
Let me preface this post with a little description as to why this review is different. I currently review for School Library Journal and I wanted to practice writing reviews in their style before I submitted my initial application. This review is in the style as I would do it for them.
Also, Camille DeAngelis is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE authors and I am so grateful for this advanced copy that she sent me! If you have not read her books, I highly recommend that you do! This one won an Alex Award, which are awarded to adult fiction novels that would appeal to teens.
Hope you all enjoy!
It’s kind of like stumbling upon the scene of an accident. Once you’ve looked, you’re part of it. Especially if you walk away.
Finding this book was like stumbling upon an accident, I was reeled right in. There was no escaping this book once it had its hooks in me.
“Dead flesh and sharpened scalpels didn’t bother me. I was my father’s daughter, after all. My nightmares were made of darker things.”
Did that catch your attention? Make your spine tingle? Then wait till you open this book…
When you don’t know what you should do, can a Magic 8 ball point you in the right direction? That’s what I hoped to find out in this recently released, contemporary young adult novel!
“If you hunt for monsters, you’ll find them.”
Do you have the chills yet? If not, or even if you do, and you’re looking for a nice, eerie novel this Halloween season, The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy, is a great way to start!
