We met some great teens last week!! In addition to listening to us talk about our favorite books, they gave us some great suggestions of books to bring to other groups we work with! This is my favorite thing. Ever. Because who knows what teens would like to read better than other teens?? No one! And these guys even took the time to write down what they loved about their favorite books for us to post, right here!! That was the sound of my brain exploding…in a good way…
Without further ado, I present to you this book review by high school student, Emilio (who gets extra brownie points from us because he not only wrote FOUR book reviews on one sitting, but found and liked us on Facebook an hour after we finished our visit…We heart you Emilio, thank you for your support!!):
Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride
“This is a story about a guy who grew up feeling like something was missing from his life, but not knowing what it was. Then, a necromancer happens to notice that he’s a necromancer, too, and takes him prisoner in a cage, along with a ‘wolf girl.’ The man who took him hostage was planning on killing him and taking his power.
I liked how this book was funny in a serious way. Although the characters were in danger, their actions and the resulting consequences were very entertaining. I’d recommend this because it’s a funny book. It also has some romantic comedy which adds to how good it is. I’d also recommend it because it shows that you should do what you can to help a friend in trouble.”
