I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

This Girl Is Different

This Girl Is Different - J.J.  Johnson This was like a train ride. It started out slowly, but once it picked up speed, it was quite a ride! The first few chapters didn't really hold my interest. I was about 25% of the way in when it really hooked me and I couldn't tear myself from the book.

When I picked this up, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The description doesn't really give any details on what life is like for Evie when she joins high school. I don't want to say Evie is an activist, but she is definitely a person who has a voice and isn't afraid to use it. Her plan to make the school a better place, wanting justice for the students, goes awry and she has to decide if this is what she really wanted and if there is a way to fix things.

I liked this. I really did. At first I was thinking I may have made a mistake at picking this one out, but I'm glad that I was proven wrong in my first assessment. The story was pretty good, it had me turning pages to see what happened. While I thought it didn't have a strong start, it definitely had a strong finish.
