Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee by Mary G. Thompson

3.5 Stars

“Never get in the car. That’s what they tell you. Once you get in the car, you’re dead. They used to teach us that at school. How you shouldn’t talk to strangers. How if a car drives up alongside you, you turn and walk in the other direction. But whoever taught us that never had someone threatening their best friend with a knife.”

I requested Amy Chelsea Stacie Dee during Banned Books Week and ended up reading it in early October when my turn at the library came around. I suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck at reviewing - therefore I’ll keep this one short and sweet. This book gets 4 Stars because it was marketed appropriately – as Young Adult. I appreciate envelope pushing subject matter, which this one definitely has. But for adults who don’t often read YA, you may find yourself reacting like this before you finally get to the big reveal . . . .

Not to mention the fact that the climax consists of a giant . . .

And an ending that gets tied up with a pretty bow. If you choose to read this, just remember it was really written for kids so shut ya old ass up. Just kidding!
