THE TRUTH COMMISSION BY SUSAN JUBY

4****

I was surprised by how much I liked this book! I went into it thinking it was some light entertainment, but don't be fooled by the sweet cover. This story is clever and thoughtful and definitely not fluff. I will definitely keep an eye on this author and recommend this book to fans of clever YA fiction!

 

 
FEVER DREAM BY by SAMANTA SCHWEBLIN, MEGAN MCDOWELL

3***

A fast read, and while I read it, I did find it compelling, but the ending is totally dissatisfying and very odd. Maybe I missed something crucial, however I felt there was such a build-up and such tension, I was expecting some great revelation at the end. A talented writer (and translator), but perhaps better suited to the short story, or even poetry. Her language is moving and lyrical, but the story feels incomplete to me.
