Another 5 Stars for Out of Order

Amy from Inked Rainbow Reviews writes: I don’t think I’ve ever read a book so fast cover to cover in my life. I couldn’t put this down. Everything, from the narrative structure to the scattered clues throughout, held my interest, page after page.

I loved the main character’s voice. I often dislike the way adolescents are written as fairly self-absorbed and unsympathetic or else completely victims of their circumstances. Corinna (and her friends as well, but it’s written first person) was neither of those. She was complex and interesting, probably one of the best young narrators I’ve read in a long time.

There isn’t much I can say about the plot that wouldn’t be spoilers. The timeline was interesting, with the whole story told in flashbacks. Each one provided one more piece to the puzzle. It was very well done, with enough clues to draw readers in but not so many as to  give everything away too soon.

This is a fantastic book, and there is no doubt I will be sharing it with my kids when they’re old enough to understand the complex themes and content.
