Review: Undone by Brooke Taylor

Review of Undone by Brooke Taylor

I didn't want to attempt and butcher a summary so here's one for you:

When Kori Kitlzer, the “dark angel” of the 8th grade, tells Serena Moore that they are more alike than she thinks, Serena is instantly intrigued. As their friendship solidifies and their lives entwine, Serena tries to become more like the fearless, outspoken, and ambitious Kori. Soon Serena doesn't know where she begins and Kori ends. But when a twist of fate yanks Kori away from Serena, she will need to find a way to complete her best friend's life left undone.

In my opinion, there was one thing that stood out to me about this book.....

not the characters

not the writing

not the details

It was how real it felt. Usually when I saw a book felt read to me that means that I can see the events in the book happening in real life, comparing circumstance. This book however deals with many things like drugs, teen pregnancy, ect, being a teen myself I can vouch for all of those and more. Ms. Taylor was able to really capture how it is to be a teen.

In Conclusion:Not usually the type of book I go for but, it was good. I reccomend it to teens who want a good read about real-life today. Oh, by the way, DO NOT let parents who believe all teens are evil*cough* my parents*cough* read this book. The over-protective ones may not let you near your friends for a week :)

I usually don't post about what I'm reading next but I just got today The Humming of Numbers by Joni Sensel and I am really excited about reading it. I don't care if it comes out next week and my review won't really be that advanced, I can't wait to read it. So look out for that :)

Thanks so much for the review! It was extremely important for me to have the world be real, so I'm really glad that came across!

When I was in high school all we had to read were the classics or Sweet Valley High books--very entertaining, but let's face it--no one I knew had to figure out why their equally blond and gorgeous twin sister suddenly quit the cheerleading squad.
