Catalyst, Laurie Halse Anderson's third novel for teens, is a deftly fashioned character study of a seldom explored subject in YA fiction: the type-A adolescent. Teens will identify (if not exactly sympathize) with prickly Kate instantly, and be shocked or perhaps secretly pleased to discover that life is no easier for the honor roll student than it is for the outcast. Anderson earns an A plus for this revealing and realistic take on life, death, and GPAs.

This book had so much potential but it spent a lot of time all over the place and not really telling a story.Published 9 months ago by Jennifer Breshears
A well written book that went nowhere. I kept waiting for something. It never really ended either. I wanted answers at the end.Published 10 months ago by Samantha
