What a crapfest. Really. I did not enjoy this book at all. It wasn't that I didn't enjoy reading about The Wave, and how such a movement was formed, I didn't enjoy it because the execution was so poor.
The Wave is based on a true story. In an American History class, people question the actions of the German citizens in supporting Hitler and the Nazis, so the teacher, Mr Ross decides to put this to the test. He forms a group called The Wave, and makes rules and mottos. Everyone enjoys this very much, because they feel empowered. They feel that they are doing something great. The wave gains momentum as more and more students join. Our main character, Laurie is concerned, because there have been incidents of violence and bullying of the people who are not part of the wave. Everything goes a little bit haywire as The Wave spirals out of control.
Now, this is a very interesting story. It brings som…
*Minor spoilers ahead!* First of all, I’d like to say congratulations to Tudor for
getting the rights back to Objects in Mirror! Objects is a good book that does
deal with some difficult issues, but unfortunately it didn’t particularly stand
out to me. Grace’s summer is ruined when the horse she rides, Sprite,
gets sold to a new owner. She gets offered a job working at the barn alongside
a guy called Matt instead. However, the eating disorder she has been struggling
with threatens to ruin everything. Grace is a lovely character, typical of a teenage girl. I
really loved the way that Tudor portrays her eating disorder (just to be clear,
I think that anorexia is a terrible disorder and a real problem, especially among teens. I
just like the way that Tudor wrote about it). Her anorexia begins before the
book, so you meet her partway through her struggle with it, and you gain a lot
of insight …
OHMYGOD. *HYPERVENTILATES* *CRIES* *DIES*. Seriously. I think this book ruined me forever. So freaking good! For those who haven't read this trilogy, seriously! Ditch my review and run out and grab a copy of Legend! (Actually, please don't ditch my review!).
WARNING: Review may contain spoilers for Legend from now on.
But seriously, this book was amazing. It was just as great as legend, if not more. I loved every moment, character, and line.
Prodigy follows the story of June and Day, a prodigy and a criminal. They are running from the republic after Day's brother's execution. They go to the patriots for help, an agree to asassinate the new Elector Primo, Anden. Soon, they realise that not everything is as it seems, and maybe there is a chance for The Republic after all.
Prodigy was even more action packed than Legend. It goes at a steady pace, although the last few chapters went at a…
