Very Clever Writing And Draws You In clever writing and Classic Ruskin Bond draws you in excellent YA book which this old bird really enjoyed This is one of those books where I find myself wondering So what s the pointSpoilers ahead MaybeOh wait That was all Soooo that was literally what I just readThis was a book about a fifteen year old tired of her oh so unadventurous life So when she meets a boy whooesn t give two shits about anything she goes off with him and realizes what it s like to live the life of adventure The whole book is literally about a stupid MC named Gloria who travels around and lives life with a boy named Uman When they El Mago de Esmirna don t return for fifteenays the police are called and shits about to go Sheriff Darling (Heartrise Series Book 1) down This book is Gloria telling theetective about what happened in those fifteen Le Seigneur des anneaux (le livre officiel du film) : Les Deux tours days they were missing Gloria was an okay character but extremely stupid and selfish at times WHY WOULD YOU JUST RUN OFF FOR FIFTEEN DAYS At least inform your parents girl You re only fifteen and running off with aude you barely know I hated how Taunting the Lion Ian Crawford desperate she was to please Uman Iidn t like how she complained of her life being boring rolls eyes Uman was just fucking annoying with his big words and fancy vocabulary Just get a bunch of vocabulary words no one knows and a smart mouth and there you go You just made Uman This book was pointless Please avoid Gloria is a 15 year old girl suffering from an early onslaught of ennui from life Her parents idn t seem
*to care one *care one or another about her And though they would protest otherw I really enjoyed this book It is told over the course of a series of interviews given by Gloria after a series of events You know something had gone wrong but you re not uite sure what especially as Gloria strikes as a fairly unreliable narrator I was hooked from the get go wanting to know Parts of it reminded me of that tv show that was on recently called hunted where ordinary people when on the run with the goal of staying off the grid for as long as possible whilst a team of experts tried to find them A really gripping story that I was reluctant to put own as I needed to know what happened next I am very Contravida disappointed with how this book ended Would ve given 5 stars if the ending was wrapped up I need a seuel I need to know what happens next for Gloria. Om the life she loathes and show her aaring exciting one in which the only limits are the boundaries of her own boldness But Uman in not all he seems and by the time she learns the truth about him she is a long way from home and everyone wants to know Where's Gloria. I m giving this a 15 star rating I usually Teen Titans: Year One don t have a problem with girls with special snowflake syndrome but I really hated this one Gloria was thoughtless and selfish for what sheid to her parents running off with a guy she barely knew And she s 15 And this was horribly paced I mean it went by at a snail s pace only for you to Тарас Бульба discover that this giant secret was not that great uite lame actually So yeah Iid not enjoy this Aimed at young readers aged 14 and over this new novel from Martyn Bedford is less high octane thriller and a sensitively written contemplative account of the trials and tribulations of teenage life Gloria is sick and tired of her mundane life each ay blending into the other but along comes Uman this exotic creature whose clothes vocabulary and general emeanour are unlike anything she s experienced before He s a breath of fresh air no make that a hurricane and Gloria lets herself get swept away without any thought of the conseuences This novel makes a refreshing change from all the noisier YA fiction currently on the market "It Is A Clever "is a clever story with fully realised characters who سرگذشت حسن صباح و جانشينان او don t have to wield a weapon or possess super powers in order to engage the reader The author skilfully recreates the uncertainties and angst of teenage years that limbo between childhood and adulthood Yes it s a slow burner but stick with it and you ll appreciate its warmth and emotional intelligence My thanks to Helen at Walker Books for providing me with a review copy of this novel About the Author Martyn Bedford has written three YA novels the first of which Flip was shortlisted for the Costa Children s Book Award He has also written five novels for adult Read about the author at wwwmartynbedfordcom See at Probably like a 15 because what was the point of this The synopsis for 20 uestions for Gloria reads as a teenage version of Gone Girl teenager goes missing suddenly reappears and in bits and pieces weiscover what has happened to her on this journey But where Gone Girl was a psychological thriller 20 uestions is a iscovery into the teenage mind Gloria is bored of being
