Genre: Young Adult (sort of), Paranormal,
TBR Reviewer: Bella Star
Rating: 3 stars - A Good Read!
Parallel Triangle is about a girl named Carly who is on a cruise as a gift from her parents for graduating. Once the ship is in the Bermuda Triangle strange things occur, including Carly’s dwindling abilities. Suddenly she can’t sing or walk. Carly and her friends have to figure how to get out of the Bermuda Triangle and reverse all that’s happened.
The idea for this book is interesting. I’d never read a plot like this before. I really like the whole alternate reality concept and the author did a wonderful job in this book showing us. Carly is a great character and I found myself drawn to her from the beginning. I did have to suspend my belief in some parts, surprisingly not the paranormal stuff, but how the characters acted and certain situations. This isn’t something I’d let my teenager read. A lot of this is inappropriate and I think this is more of an adult read.
Reading this book as an adult, I did enjoy Parallel triangles.
Young adult mystery, I don’t think I’ve read one in this genre before. I am pleasantly surprised by this book. Casey writes the conspiracy theory column for her high school. But soon threats and warnings start plaguing Casey. Will she let a story risk her life or give up before she’s found all the answers?
Casey. Is. Fabulous. Seriously, I love her. She feels so real and I swear I saw a little of myself in her, lol. She has a lot of spunk and drive. I really like reading from her point of view too. Victor is the hot senior trying to protect and crush on her. I really like this addition of romance. It rounds out the book plot perfectly. It isn’t all high school drama either. There may be drugs in the cafeteria food and a teacher may be having a relationship with a student. That alone kept me reading but Casey really makes it hard to put the book down. There are several twists and revelations at the end, let me tell you, I didn’t get them all right!
Lost Reputation is a must read. Forget the fact that it’s young adult (even though that part is fabulous), if you enjoy a good mystery this should be on your list to read!
