Today we have a review from our Young Adult book reviewer CookieBooker, who blogs at https://cookiebookreviews.wordpress.com/
CookieBooker has been reading New England Crush by Pia Fenton
In New England Rocks, we see Rain Mackenzie transfer to a school in New England, USA. When Rain settled in and enjoyed the school, her parents decided to make her younger sister, Raven, transfer as well.
When Raven meets Dr. Alburn, a girl named Lilith is called upon to give a tour of the school and, much to Raven’s surprise, is friendly and doesn’t snap at Raven when she asks questions.
Lilith, after giving the tour, leads Raven into her homeroom (a bit like tutor in England) where she gets to meet the rest of the group, Amethyst, Demon, Shadow and Miz. The other four quickly make friends and introduce themselves. Between them, they explain the different groups (jocks, Goths etc.) until one boy catches Raven’s attention, Liam Donnelly. The only problem, he is in a relationship with Brooke.
Once again, the portrayal of the characters is very accurate and shows how easily things can fall apart. Along with the characters, the storyline is written in such a way that you feel as if you are attending the same school and witnessing everything that happened.
The cover is clever and follows suit of New England Rock with its picture of Raven and the blue behind makes the cover eye catching again.
I would recommend this book to teenager and above for a brilliant read. Pia has done it again!
