    A good solid novel and one I would recommend.

    The Competition by Cecily Wolfe is a very well written young adult novel. The story had solid characters with intriguing backgrounds and histories to reveal as The Competition unfolded. The characters are engaging and have depth and storylines that readers may be able to identify with on some level. As the story unfolds, you can't help but read faster, and you want to see what happens because there is an intense buildup of the action involving the writing competition, the characters and forming friendships, and their personal stories. Cecily Wolfe does an excellent job of capturing and revealing the lengths some will go to get back at people, and also the tenderness of being friends. There are several instances where there is exposition (head-talking), but it's written well and passionately as if you are sitting there with the character having a conversation. At times the story can get confusing on who is talking as there is some head-hopping between characters and there are not enough dialogue tags to signal which one is talking, but overall this is a great young adult book that transcends all ages. I liked the ending also, and it did really need that epilogue. I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

    An awesome story

    Throughout this book, I was trying to figure out who might win the competition and the ending truly surprised me. This is such a fabulous book for high schoolers and YA who are into competitions and even those who aren't. Either way, these kids (most of them anyway) show you how to do it and how to behave in general. I work with kids and find that they can be as good as the kids in this story. People, kids, do not all use foul language and jump into sexual relationships. Young men are still decent and girls can still be respected without being pressured to do bad things. I absolutely loved this story and I hope this author writes more about writing and how inspiration comes from winning and losing and from behaving appropriately even in the face of something truly unfair. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
