First High School Reader Review of Dead Rules

Dead Rules recently received its first review by a high school reader.  So cool to know that a few teens are receiving the book early as advanced review copies.  Kreag's first review of an ARC turns out to be my first High School review of Dead Rules

Excerpts from the review by Kreag, at Kreag's YA Chronicles:

"(Dead Rules) is the first ARC book I read from the first package of ARCs I ever received. I really wanted to read them in order of release date, this being the last to be released of the books I received. But, one day, I picked it up, curious just to know a little of what was going on. So I checked out the first page. And then I found myself on page fifty. I couldn't stop.

"It was completely original and it was a whole new take on the Paranormal Romance genre. I loved it…

"I loved the characters in (Dead Rules). Some of them you start out hating and end up loving, and some you start out loving but end up hating. But that's a good thing! I really liked all the dead kids that Jana becomes friends with, and I loved hearing about each of their stories. I really liked the way the story switched to the scene of their death when they were telling their story, so it was like you were with them…

"I couldn't put the book down. So, put this on your to-be-read list, because it is not to be overlooked!"

Hey, Kreag! Sorry I only had room to excerpt from your review. I really like the way you consider five different aspects of each book you review. You keep doing that and you'll have one of the best YA review sites online, no kidding.
