5 Things About Rev Girl by Leigh Hutton

5 Things About Rev Girl by Leigh Hutton

February 16, 2016 Review 26 ★★★½

Girl’s kicking ass in extreme sports Girls competing in extreme sports is something I only just realised I haven’t really read before, aside from books I got into way back at the start of high school (and they were mainly jockeys and other horse books).

Review: Arabelle’s Shadows by Fleur Gaskin

Review: Arabelle’s Shadows by Fleur Gaskin

September 27, 2013 Review 28 ★★★

Everything in Arabelle’s life is coming together. She has confidence, great friends, she’s even dating Naak, a wealthy Thai socialite. But there are too many models in Bangkok. Arabelle’s broke, she can’t find an agent in New York, and Naak isn’t as wonderful as he first appears. Slowly the Shadows creep back into Arabelle’s mind, bringing with them thoughts of hopelessness and despair. The vile Shadows know something Arabelle’s refusing to remember and, if she’s not careful, they’ll use it to destroy her. Based on a true story, Arabelle’s Shadows takes us on a journey through the struggles of growing up, not quite making it as an international model, and attempting to overcome a crushing depression.

Review: Death Loves Me Not by Marian Tee

Review: Death Loves Me Not by Marian Tee

August 10, 2013 Review 16 ★★★

16-year-old Eden Velasco is haunted – by a girl with a face-splitting smile, by one who likes to hang on to her window sills at night, and by another who chokes on her own ashes. Sometimes, Eden wonders if it’s just better to bite her wrist and bleed herself to death.

Eden has tried hard to fake being normal, recording episodes of MTV reality shows that she never watches and covering her walls with posters of boy bands she can’t even name. And she can’t see ghosts. She can’t. Yet everything Eden’s worked hard for starts to unravel when a dead little girl with paper eyes starts stalking her, leaving dead bodies in her wake. Read more »

They’ve been waiting.

Watching.
