Candy is just brilliant. Lucas was one of the most moving books I've read in a long time, but Candy will certainly give it a run for its money. Like Lucas, 'it gets to you', this book.
Candy is honest and gritty, yet deeply moving. It's a love story, a thriller and an action story the like of which I haven't read since Great Expectations. That's saying something!
The end is scary and hooking. Joe has to decide who is more impoortant: his sister, or the girl he is in love with?
It is one of those books that hits you, and hard!
You can feel the emotion of Candy but especially Joe, you can see how badly he falls in love with her from the beginning of the book. The begininning of the book is just about a boy and a girl, an average girl. As you start to get into this book you see the real candy and i could not manage myself to put this book down.
I recommend reading this book to teens and over really cos its that great!
