Bristles was a great spin on the traditional Cinderella story. Good YA book set in a alternative society where the government is strong arming its people. Bryssa or Bristles as her step mother calls her, steps out of her horrid life to change it all for everyone. I give this book 4 stars for YA.
I was given a copy of “Foreverland is Dead” by the author, Tony Bertauski, in exchange for an honest review. This one kept me on the edge of my seat through the whole thing. I stayed up way too late and picked it up firs thing in the morning to finish it! Then the ending completely blew me away. I can almost always figure out the plot line, but this one kept me guessing until the end. It’s a story of an alternate reality populated by teenage girls who are trapped. The story is gritty and fast paced. I really enjoyed it. I would definitely read more from this author and am looking forward to the next book in the Foreverland series. I give the book 5 stars. I would recommend it for age 13 and up.
