DerricCourtney sideline Holy Crap The World is Ending The Anunnaki Chronicles didn t add anything to the story The AnnieJenn sexuality issuesidn t add anything either I felt like there was a good story in there somewhere but George never uite got there This seuel Stand and Deliver: Political Activism, Leadership, and Hip Hop Culture definitely wasn t as satisfying as I had hoped It s been a while since I read the first book and I m sure it had its flaws but I loved it It s one of those books that have stuck with me ever since I finished it This book however I can t say left much of an impression It was a little hard to read through to be perfectl. Die 14 jährige Becca King ist aufer Flucht Ihr Stiefvater hat seinen Geschäftspartner ermordet und er weiß The Wrong Complexion for Protection dass Becca es weißenn sie kann ie Gedanken anderer Menschen hören Nun ist sie auf einer abgeschiedenen Insel untergetauch. Y honest and I think it primarily #Because It Seems So #it seems so vastly from what was presented in the first book The first book was suspenseful story about a girl out to keep herself from her angerous step father with a story about a girl out to keep herself from her angerous step father with a supernatural power for extra measure With this book it was like the author idn t know what to Children of the Sun do because after this book she has one to write which is a shame because I think this all would haveone well with just two books rather than the overused trilogy formula so she had to come up with something and this is it First off this story just comes off as an outright mess You have Jenn s perspective Becca s perspective and Derrick s perspective All of this seems so wildly Approaches To Academic Reading And Writing different from one another it was hard to see how in the world they were connected Even when they finally came together well at least Jenn s and Becca sid it still seemed utterly confusing with a rushed ending to explain how everyone is connected to this one seal I m all for varying perspectives but it could have been written much neater than it was in this book Jenn s perspective was the only perspective that remained interesting throughout the entire book I Living with Lynching: African American Lynching Plays, Performance, and Citizenship, 1890-1930 don t remember her from the first book which irritated me a little but I was okay with going along with it Jenn herself is a little tiring in how outright antagonistic she is and her home lifeidn t seem so bad to justify her behavior but I got use to her fast enough At least her side of the story was going somewhere Becca who was the only character I really was invested in seemed to have very little to Witch-Hunt Narrative do in this story and until way into the middle half her perspective is veryull It felt like her story which was all the first book was about was being shunted aside for this less interesting mystery about a seal I will say though that at least she My Hero Academia Series Volume 1 - 20 Books Collection Set by Kouhei Horikoshi didn t spend her time moping about Derrick That would only have made it worseDerrick s perspective was useless Really the author could have cut all the chapters from his POV and the story would not have been impacted at all It was like she wasying to keep him relevant but had no real way of Alcohol Addiction Recovery doing so I feel like his perspective could have been compelling He is part of a very small minority on an island populated by mostly whites and he has a hard time reconciling his life in the States and his life in Uganda All of this would have been a uniue story line to follow one weon t see enough of in YA literature What Mars Journey does the author focus on Sex He wants to have it but when heoes it wasn t what he expected It read like some cautionary tale a Christian youth group would give to its students Somehow this all ties into his struggle with identity but to me it was a flat story about not knowing whether you really want to sleep with someone or not What Beating the Odds - From shocking childhood abuse to the embrace of a loving family, one mans true story of courage and redemption does this have too with Uganda What Climax (Double Alchemy, does this have too with Derrick as an actual person with a huge identity crisis Nothing Nothing at all I Peace DeLeos Action Thriller Singles d say it was the chapters about Derrick that made reading this a chore I see a lot of peopleon t know what to think about the seal and that s because really there s no one way to feel about it It comes completely out of left field Suddenly everything it about this seal even the characters themselves constantly talk about why everything is about this seal It s an unusual seal the book says over and over That s because it s a selkie which seems so out of place with everything that has been given to the reader so far Suddenly we have magic seals Why How Roots and Blossoms does this impact the overall story which if you ve forgotten in all this is Becca trying to hide out from her stepdad Ion t even know the answer to that myself I The Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom don t think I ve been so mad about a seuel in my life I wanted to like it but it justidn t go with the first book at all It s such a shift in focus and Shakespeare direction that it s hard to tolerate I ve never seen a bunch of characters who juston t know anything about themselves about the people around them about where they re going Every character arc felt like it ended up with IDK I guess I ll figure out at some point If this is suppose to represent teens then it s kind of off the mark I think real teenagers know a lot about themselves than this book will lead you to believe I BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) don t know if I ll bother with the third book and if Io it will only be to see how everything turns out with Becca s stepfather I m certainly hoping there won t be another ridiculous plot about seals or some.
