    Best Book I Read This Month

    I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. HOLY SHIT THIS BOOK GUYS, THIS BOOK. SO. GOOD. So we have main character, Suzie, who at the beginning of the story, is having symptoms of anorexia. She is losing weight and no one knows why or how to stop it. One day a mysterious man came and took her to the Land of the Dead, claiming she is a Death and cannot survive in the human world. Thing is, she is the first female Death in a million years, the first female Death before her betrayed the Deaths to the enemies and there has never been another female until Suzie. So naturally, her sudden presence in their world scares the other Deaths. Everyday she gets bullied, she gets hate comments not only from her classmates but also her teachers. The only thing she wants is to go home, but she'll have to pass the Final Test to do that, and no one has ever passed. Many things happen and you get to go on a really amazing adventure with Suzie and her (very few) friends as they discover mysteries and solve them. Ok my lame description probably made the book sound boring but I promise you, it is anything but. I completely flew through it and loved every single minute. There were some mysteries but the book was really fast paced and interesting happens every few pages and chapters. The world building was absolutely wonderful. Everything from the sceneries, the history, was so beautifully written. There was even a sport in there, a bit kind of like Quidditch, but just as fun and good. I loved the plot, it was really interesting and there were a few twists that were kind of predictable but I still really enjoyed the big reveal. The story had such an awesome ending that left me wanting more. I think Suzie was a bit mature for a thirteen year old but that is alright. Sure it seems a bit unrealistic for someone her age to be so mature but I didn't mind. I wouldn't have wanted to deal with a whining, immature main character so I don't have a problem with that. I also really like the other characters, Billy, Frank, and Jason. They are really great friends to Suzie and I'm totally team Fuzie. Hoping to see that in the next book. We do get a little background info on Billy and Frank but not Jason, and I would've loved to learn more about him. Christopher Mannino is a really great writer and I'm hoping to get to more of his books soon. (Any ideas of how to get the second book? I live in Cambodia and no bookstores here have it. Also cannot order online :( ) I seriously recommend this book if you have not read it. It is now one of my favorite books, best I read this month, and one of the best I read this year.

    Fun and interesting Story

    Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books I received a copy of this book by YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for a fair and honest review. Suzie lived a normal boring life for a thirteen year old. That was until she started losing weight and looked like death. The doctors couldn’t figure it out and Suzie ate more than she normally did. Everything changed the moment that fateful knock on her front door started. Could she change the course of the future, could she come back, or would she want to? This book was a good read. It was fun and had a great plot. There were parts of the story that reminded me of another very popular series but with obvious differences as well as a completely different story line but I enjoyed the similarities. The idea of humans being “chosen” to become a Death and a Death college was a new idea for me. The author did a great job with his descriptions of the people becoming a Death, the college, and the grounds and the surrounding areas of the college. I loved the sweet innocence between Suzie and Billy and the friendship that formed so easily between the housemates. I appreciate the fact that the author did not make the problems that Suzie had to deal with worse than they were, as he could very well have done based on the idea she was the only female in a male driven society. My only complaint about this book was that it lacked to draw any real emotion out of me. I felt some emotion while reading the book of course but nothing that is of mention. This will not keep me from reading more of this authors work and I do hope that he makes this book into a series, as it will be a series that I will read. It simply didn’t make me sit on the edge of my seat or feel extremely sad, upset, or happy. Go pick up a copy of this book and give it a shot. Again, the story line was fun and interesting. It kept me reading and wanting to see how the author chose to write about a Death college and how a Death lives their “life”. It’s a great story!
