Pay close attention and you might solve this.

On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.

Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.

Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.

Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.

Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.

And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.

Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose?

Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

My Review 5 Stars

Detention. Five students attend, only four leave. Bronwyn has never broken a rule. Cooper a baseball star. Nate has broken all the rules. Addy is trying to hold everything together. Simon is a nobody he is however the creator of a gossip app at the school. All four of them have a secret just before Simon was going to share them he dies.

This book is the second 5 star read this year. It’s gripping, you just want to know what did actually happen that day in detention. I loved this book so much, the plot is well thought out. The author is clever by giving us hints which make you think throughout.

Reading the blurb you would think it’s just your typical school novel you have the good girl, bad boy, the sports star and the popular prom queen but it’s really not.

At the start of all this Bronwyn is more worried if her one detention will go on her record and if this will affect her chances getting into the best college. She does however make a valid point why are they in detention when they didn’t do any thing. Nate lives in a rough house, his dad had an accident at work so they both rely on social security. His mum has bipolar one day she left and never came back. Nate resorts to selling weed and painkillers just for some extra money. Cooper is the sports star all his dad is interested in is if he is going to get in the baseball team. In all honesty I wasn’t really interested in his chapters however that did change towards the end. Addy is the prom queen who has an amazing boyfriend Jake. Jake though calls all the shots. Addy has been keeping a secret though for months now that she has to tell him. I did feel sorry for her though at the end but i won’t go into detail as i don’t want to give anything away. Simon uses his app to get the attention he wants which he doesn’t get at school. He has shared so many secrets that many people didn’t like him. The one question i had was, why them four?

I did guess though what did happen but that didn’t affect how much I enjoyed it as I was not expecting everything else that came with the reveal. I was expecting this book to be really slow to get the point but it wasn’t. Overall if you haven’t already it i would highly recommend you read this one.

Review: The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon

Pages- 344

Genre- Young Adult, Romance

Release Date- November 1st 2016

Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.

Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.

The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?

My Review 4 stars

Natasha is being deported back to Jamaica with her family. She doesn’t believe in fate but fate seems to be playing a big part in her day. Daniel is the good one compared to his brother, he is doing everything his parents are wanting him to do. They both find each other Daniel thinks something incredible is going to happen.

What I liked about this book was that nothing felt rushed, also we got to know about the side characters who actually play a big part in the short time Natasha and Daniel meet. This book takes place in just one day what I learned with this book is that a lot can happen in less than 24 hours.

Natasha is a facts girl she always thinks that there is a reason for why you do a certain thing or why you feel the way you do. Natasha used to be close with her dad before one night she over heard him saying something unforgivable about her and her brother. This has put a strain on their relationship ever since. Natasha will do anything to stay in the country to stay with her friends so she goes to a lawyer who is known to be very good in Natasha circumstances.

Daniel is doing what his parents want him he’s going to be a doctor, even though he dreams of becoming a poet. Daniel has an interview he needs to impress so he can get into Yale. He believes in fate, he believes that things happen for a reason like him seeing Natasha for the first time, him deciding to follow her.

When they first meet Natasha doesn’t take much interest in him she doesn’t want to fall for him that is. Daniel suggests this thing where you ask questions to each other than you stare at each other for 4 minutes then you apparently fall in love with each other. This for me was unique and a great way to know the characters even more.

The ending was amazing one that I wasn’t expecting though. Overall this book was a good quick read with a story that will hook you in.

It definitely made me think about fate or if there is a plan out there for us and we just need to find the right path towards it. Do you believe in fate?
