    This book is amazing. Feel like I've just been on one incredible, sometimes laugh out loud funny, always intensely moving journey & graduated from the most appalling small town American high school. ~ Lu Hersey, Twitter

    A great way to get younger teens enthralled by Shakespeare as they’ve never been before. ~ Lucy Russell

  • Hospital High
    Mimi Thebo
    This is a book for teens and is very personal to the author as it is based on a true story. It is the story of Coco, who ends up in hospital after a car accident, where she suffers internal injuries including crushing her voice box. The ensuing months and years follow her struggles to regain her health, but also to see how her relationships with family and friends pan out. It is a totally uplifting tale that I will probably read again and would definitely recommend to other adults as well as to the intended audience. ~ Margaret's Reading Shelf, Edublogs

    Review copy provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This book was so relatable and emotional. I can't think of much to say about this one, I'm still processing my feelings. Did you ever experience trauma and just want to give up? That's what this story is..it may be a hard read if you've been there.. ~ Hospital High, NetGalley

    Have you ever been through something so severely traumatic that you didn't know or maybe didn't want to know how to come back from it? You will relate. When Coco is severely injured in a car accident and wakes up after coding in the hospital, she's mad. She wishes they'd let her go where she'd felt at peace with no pain rather than pull her back to this hell she's going through. She's touched that everyone is thinking of her and sending her cards, but not before she's upset that her friend isn't in the hospital bed next to her. Worst of all, she's horrified to learn she may not be able to ever sing again. This book is well written and full of humor but also a lot of real pain and struggle. I loved every minute of it. ~ Melinda Turner, GoodReads

    Buckle up, because you're in for a bumpy (but great) ride! This book is a great mix of humour and darkness! It's well written and has a great writing style with a great pace! Coco was a great character and I loved spending time with her. ~ Victoria Tickle, A Novel love

    What a great YA novel. I am always in search of books in the YA genre that do not fall into the fantasy category. It is nice to have some variety for the younger folks (or an easier read for us older ones) that has a little something different. Written in the tune of a memoir, as it is based on a true story, it follows her through dying, and then learning to relive after such a traumatic even at a young age, one that affected her talents and dreams. Some of it was gut wrenching, some was lighthearted, and all of it was enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this book as a YA read for all ages. ~ Amy Wolf, NetGalley

    A powerful, raw and honest book. ~ Gill Lewis, Twitter

    Coco didnt really fit in with her friends or classmates. Her mother was a little odd. Her father brutally let them for another woman with no remorse. Then there was the car accident that changed her life.

    I'm genuinely struggling to find the words to describe this book that will do it justice. I loved every single page of it. I actually adore Coco. I loved her relationship with her mother and the doctors. I loved how she reluctantly became someone she could depend on. I loved the love/hate relationship with Dr Kular. I feel like the accident, whilst traumatic and life changing, was a positive in Coco's life to make her really and truly appreciate her life. That ending, oh yes, was so beautiful ~ Claire Wassell, NetGalley

  • Time Sphere
    M.C. Morison
    Time Sphere is, as is name says, about time and how some "time-terrorist" want to control it for their own interests. The premise of this book is that time is not a river that flows in a lineal and uneventful way but another dimension that is something like layers that over-impossed one over the other, so our protagonists from different times and countries could work together to fight against the evil Children of Seth and save the world.
    This book is a mix of Egyptian myths and folkclore, coming of age and friendship. Is a YA book that could be easily read by youngs of all ages.

    ~ Bertha Leon, NeTGalley

    As a lover of history and mythology, I really liked the time travel aspect of the novel. Morrison was able to incorporate educational information in a fun adventure for preteens. I noticed another reviewer mentioned that they had issues with the constant shifting of time however, I did not and I was able to keep up with which time I was in while reading. To say this is his first novel, I am highly impressed by his abilities to juggle time travel and keeping in mind the tone for his readers and intended audience. I cannot wait to see where Rhory's next leap will take him. ~ Bianca Tenney, GoodReads/NetGalley

And the friendship between kim and coco is so heart warming, and heart-wrenching too. not once did i feel like it was dragged on. everything was at the perfect pace. i enjoyed this so so much, and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for an emotional read! ~ Mymy Pham , NetGalley

    This is one of my must reads for this year. The story of a young girl and her fight to regain her voice after a car accident is truly amazing. The author grabs your attention and doesn't let go. I read it in less than two days and still find myself thinking about the tale, which is based on a true story. Highly recommended for teen readers. ~ Margaret Pemberton, Librarian at Growing the School Library, NetGalley

    The first line is a corker and it just carries on... I loved the trueness of the characters - they weren't mawkish or being the 'inspiring hero' but made mistakes and fumbled along to somehow come out the other end in style. ~ Karin Celestine, Instagram

    I would recommend this title to young children (4th-8th grade) who are interested in Shakespeare but find his work intimidating. The book has good pacing, interesting setting, believable and likable characters. ~ Lisa Baughman, Librarian, NetGalley

  • Sammy & Me
    Marie Yates
    A good read. I read it in an afternoon over lunch and didn't put it down once. The description said it was book 2 of a series book could be read as a stand alone. I hadn't read book 1 and found it still enjoyable but wish I'd read book 1 first to know the full back story. I'll have to find it now! Look forward to reading the next in the series.
