Reviews for Starters
Wow. Talk about residing / mentally controlling a body that's not yours. Or letting someone else control your body as if its their own. Downright creepy, isn't it?
STARTERS is a book that will make you addicted to it from the first page onwards. The concept of the story itself is original and captivating (with the body renting and all), and the story is fast-paced, and all in all, brilliant.
Callie is a likeable heroine. She is portrayed as a clever teenager who remains strong in adversity and loves her brother a great deal. In fact, most of her actions in the beginning of the novel are spurred by her love and worry for her sickly brother. However, her motives changes slightly when she discovers that Prime Destinations is involved in a sinister plot that may endanger many homeless teenagers' lives, including herself.
While some parts of the book come across me as slightly unrealistic, this doesn't keep me from devouring the book. Plot twists are littered here and there, and you'd never know what to expect. At the end of the story, Lissa threw me a bomb which literally sucked my breath out. I felt like fainting.
Undeniably, Lissa Price has done a fantastic job on her debut, and I will heartily congratulate her for her great work. Hopefully her next book ENDERS will surpass STARTERS in all ways possible!
STARTERS is a fresh breath in the YA industry, and I really loved it! by Aikunder review
