review ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ï Pintip Dunn

35 STARSMy initial interest in this one stemmed from a desire to find culturally diverse eads in a plethora of genres I always fangirl when I can find one in the young adult sector as I think it s important to empower our young people and expand their views on cultures other than their own I m not old by any means but I m far enough emoved to wish I had found books like this when I was a teenager I m far enough emoved to wish I had found books like this when I was a teenager on the Verge was a fantastic example of
"such while it "
while it t feel like an info dump of non fictional facts it DID have enough cultural importance invested into the story to keep the pace flowing Thriving at work really well I ve adored all of the author s cover art to date I feel it seems toeally tie in to her dark themes while keeping a bright attractive face to draw in the Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? readerAs I just stated above this was aeally dark Rumiko Style read that packed uite a punch in such a slight amount of pages somewhere around 250 I believe The plot starts out steady and even but once Shelly is brought into the picture things take a dark turnather uickly and go haywire I can appreciate the need for a dramatic jaw dropping conclusion but I was a bit torn on my final feelings toward the one used here It felt a bit over the top and while I know this is fiction it seemed utterly unrealistic and somewhat hard to swallow I ll give Dunn credit where it s due though I certainly didn t see it coming and it indeed caused a major jaw drop from myself Other than the credibility of the ending I found this an entirely delectable The Glorious Strategist read that was easily consumed in a single sitting Highlyecommended for those looking for diversity in the fictional genres I truly enjoyed immersing myself in Thai American culture and felt like this side of the book was the strongest and most valuable aspect includedMany thanks to the publisher for providing my copy it was a pleasure to provide my honest thoughts here AHHH THIS IS JUST WHAT I NEEDEDI can say with my hand on my heart that this book is one of my favourite books this year It you like THE CREEPY TWISTY STORIES LIKE WE creepy twisty stories like WE LIARS then you would love thisI will not say much as I eally do not want to give the story away But it is DIVERSE and HONEST and CREEPYLOVE LOVE LOVE Kanchana is a Thai American girl that has always had a feeling of not uite fi.

S book is a Young Adult Contemporary mixed into a MysteryThriller This book was wrapped around the plot idea of two girls who feel as though they don t belong They feel as though they are outsiders As the girls get to know each other they instantly connect and become friends We were originally intrigued by the story at the start and we couldn t put the book down It Stronger Than You Know really sounded like a promisingead However around half way through the book we found that we were becoming Keepers of the Kingdom: The Ancient Offices of Britain really uncomfortable with the plot and charactersDon t get us wrong we absolutely loved the character Kan a Thai American teenage girl She was just so likeable She was a teenage girl that felt as though she was stuck between two cultures She was portrayed as being anxious and shy in social situations However privately she was so bold and has a big and creative vision for her future After the secondary character Shelly was introduced things started to go downhill We started to feeleally anxious uncomfortable freaked out and sick This may have been the authors intention to fulfil the thriller aspect to the novelInstead of leaving us with wanting we finished the novel feeling very disappointed We felt as though the book was over explained in parts Although we Forsaken By Shadow really lovedeading about Kan s Thai culture we loved how this Young Adult novel incorporated diverse characters The mystery and thriller aspects to this novel definitely
