4.0 out of 5 stars Unique psychological thriller, 27 Jun 2014
By 
This review is from: Charm and Strange (Hardcover)
CHARM & STRANGE is a uniquely compelling, confusing, and complex psychological mystery. A one-of-a-kind in YA.

You literally have no (complete) idea as to what is going on in CHARM & STRANGE until the near/very end. And in my case, I had to read other reviews just to make sure I had the story straight.

For the most part, you read this intriguing split-narrative and try to piece together what is going on without truly having any real clue as to where this book is headed.

And the reveal(s), when it/they come, are both subtle and shocking.

Recommended, for sure.

(Note: before one reads CHARM & STRANGE you should be informed that it is potentially triggering. Though the author is not ever extremely explicit, dependent on the reader, one may wish to straight up avoid it/seek further insight from others who have read the book before picking it up).
