Book Review: ENTANGLED


TITLE: ENTANGLED
AUTHOR: Cat Clarke
IMPRINT: Quercus Publishing Plc
PUBLICATION DATE: 6 January 2011
PREVIOUS TITLES IN SERIES: None

The same questions whirl round and round in my head:
What does he want from me?
How could I have let this happen?
AM I GOING TO DIE?

17-year-old Grace wakes up in a white room, with a table, pens and paper - and no clue how she got here.

As Grace pours her tangled life onto the page, she is forced to remember everything she's tried to forget. There's falling hopelessly in love with the gorgeous Nat, and the unravelling of her relationship with her best friend Sal. But there's something missing. As hard as she's trying to remember, is there something she just can't see?

Grace must face the most important question of all. Why is she here?

A story of dark secrets, intense friendship and electrifying attraction.

THE TWEET
Grace has woken up in a white room with nothing but paper & pens. Get ENTANGLED as Grace relives her past & tries to figure out her future.

WHAT WORKED
I loved Grace's personality in ENTANGLED. She was snarky and had a fantastic sense of humor, despite the circumstances she was in. She narrates her story with a strong and independent voice that really resonated with me. As Grace told her story, I could imagine myself in her place, experiencing the same feelings she did.

WHAT DIDN'T WORK
I didn't love the beginning of the story. To be honest, it was too vague for me. I was very tempted to put the book down, but I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. I guess I'm just one of those people who always has to know the details of everything and the fact that I didn't know what was going on and where Grace was bothered me.

OVERALL
ENTANGLED is a not a happy story. While there is hope at the ending of the book, the rest is depressing and sad, but so very REAL. Author Cat Clarke has perfectly captured the voice of a teenage girl and put it into ENTANGLED.

I just read Entangled, and I felt the same way- it took a while to get into it, but after that I was hooked. Great review, I really like your way of breaking things down! :)

I'm not ready for a sad book yet, but I will read this one. Glad to hear that it's a good book.

I prefer to avoid sad books, but I still want to read this book D: so no happy ending then?
