Book Review: Gone Too Far
AUTHOR: Natalie D. Richards
PUBLISHED: January 6th, 2015
PREMISE: A girl gets caught up in a revenge plot to take down her school's mean kids.
MY REVIEW: Drumroll ladies and gentlemen, for this is the first release of the year that I've read. I even read it the actual month it came out! I'm kind of proud of this.
All in all this was a good way to jump start the class of 2015 books. It was a solid thriller mystery with a good message attached. It was a good way to explore the concept of revenge and why it's not always the best way. Also, thank you author for not slut-shaming. This actually showed why slut-shaming is bad. It actually even showed why maybe you shouldn't even judge popular kids! Yes, a YA book pointing out that not everything in high school is black and white and that maybe you shouldn't judge people if you don't know them.
I know that sounds like small things, but considering some of the YA I've read lately that has been all too happy to stereotype and judge, this was kind of a breath of fresh air. It was a nice solid mystery with a good message attached. Not a bad way to start off the 2015 book year.
WHO SHOULD READ: fans of Revenge, Pretty Little Liars fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five mysterious texts
