"A children's story which is enjoyed only by children is a bad children's story. The good ones last." --C.S. Lewis
My mini review round up: Panic by Lauren Oliver, a young adult action-filled contemporary published by Harper in 2014; Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott, a young adult "The Hunger Games" meets "The Amazing Race" novel published by Scholastic; The Shadow Prince by Bree Despain, a young adult urban fantasy take on the Hades/Persephone and Orpheus/Eurydice myths published by Egmont; and The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness, a literary adult retelling of a classic Japanese fairy tale published by Penguin.
I'd post the reviews here, but since it's four of them, I'm just going to link back to my blog.
