The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater - PUBLIC
The twists and turns in this book, as well as the palpable suspense created by meaty foreshadowing and rich characterization, makes this one hard to put down. Stiefvater's phrasing and details are beautiful, but they do not make for an easy read; students who aren't focusing, or who have reading difficulties, may find the writing complex and confusing. Most should find the story well worth the effort, however. First in a series. HS - PUBLIC. Reviewed by: Caryn.
