Jennifer Lynn Barnes: Golden

Jennifer got the teenage voice down perfectly.

Which, IMHO, might work against the book finding a larger audience, because teenagers are whiny, overdramatic brats, though I suppose Lissy does have reason to be overdramatic.

After all, she’s just moved from California all the way to Oklahoma and she SEES Auras.

The next book, Platinum, will be out next year, and I can’t wait for it.

This rates 7.5 out of 10.

    I just stumbled across this review- thanks for taking the time to post it! I’m glad you’re looking forward to Platinum. I’m starting to get really excited for its release, too. And on another note, I was reading some of your other reviews, and I completely agree with you on Speak- it’s definitely the most powerful novel I’ve ever read of its kind (though “Just Listen” by Sarah Dessen covers similar material, and is also definitely worth the read). Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read Golden and especially for posting the review- it made my day!
