I really, really enjoyed Phantom! I'm a big The Phantom of the Opera fan, so I was immediately drawn to this book.
Rebecca is the kind of girl who's usually in the background, but when her school puts on a production of The Phantom of the Opera she knows she has to audition for the role of Christine. When the new Goth guy auditions, he is the clear choice for the Phantom. Then Becca attracts the attentions of both Tom, the popular basketball player, and Lord Justyn, the Goth boy that seems to embody the soul of the Phantom perfectly. When someone starts to leave threatening messages and phonecalls for Becca, and people are getting hurt, Becca has to decide who she can trust.
I loved Justyn! Like, where was he when I was at school?! He's very secure in who he is, he doesn't care if ignorant people have negative opinions about him. He's very passionate and determined. The way he quotes The Phantom of the Opera, and acts like an old-world gentleman had me swooning.
Becca was really likable, she's the shy girl with the amazing voice who starts to break out of her shell when she gets the part of Christine. Tom, the popular guy she's had a crush on, starts paying attention to her and it's like every teenage girl's fantasy. Then she feels herself drawn to the mysterious Lord Justyn, and is torn between the two guys. I wish that Becca had a bit more spine in some parts of the book. I could understand why she's torn between Justyn and Tom, although for me it was always an obvious choice- Justyn! She's also scared and confused by the threatening calls and messages she receives.
I really enjoyed the snippets of information about Wicca, it's something I've always been intrigued about.Read more ›
the language and the style are something i think you should take note of. i think this is a great achievement in itself. It is clearly written in a way that should appeal to young adults but the balance is just right, that older readers can be fully involved in it too.
then there is the story, brilliant. the story itself is so much like the music. it builds up, full of emotion toward a powerful crescendo. it has twists and turns and romantic appeal so full of mystery. i can only imagine that she wrote this playing the music in her head when she did. that is exactly how it reads
finally i should explain the title of the review. i do love the phantom of the opera. one of the best musical achievements and a great storyline. im sure many of us agree with that. but one thing i hate to see is someone messing around with it and doing something that might taint the brilliance of it. so then this story, as the title states, is accepted and well received. this is so because it has added something new to the Phantom and it works. Also i admire the courage of the writer to redo the ending and make this her own. Very well done
First, don't be thrown off by the cover. The 3 characters are very Sims like and there is more to this book than this cover depicts. It is much deeper and you will find yourself completely engrossed in this modern day version of Phantom!
This is my third Laura DeLuca book and what I can tell you about Laura is that you can tell that she really loves creating her characters. Each character in Phantom is important to the story and all very well rounded. I wonder if she has a back story for each one! I wouldn't be surprised.
Rebecca is like every one of us in high school. She has a few friends. She longs for the popular boy but he is so far out of reach. Her talent as a singer would probably have gone unnoticed if the school wasn't looking to cast the roles of her absolute favorite play Phantom of the Opera. Overcoming her shyness and nerves she sings the songs that she knows by heart and wins the lead role of Christine. While she has been dying to be on popular boy Tom's radar forever, she is now drawn to new guy, Justyn who wins the lead of the Phantom. With Tom and Justyn vying for her attention and affection, Rebecca finds her life paralleling Christine's.
People are dying, accidents at every corner and Rebecca is living the role she obsessed over.
What a great read it made me long to see Phantom of the Opera again.
This was a mystery, love story, and musical all tied into one! There were so many quotes from the play, the songs, the words of the lovelorn Phantom and his obsession with Christine are throughout the book. Laura must be a BIG fan of Phantom!
Also, kudos to Laura, it wasn't until I was 85% through the book that I finally realized who the villain was. Whenever I thought I had it figured out, I didn't. If you read it and knew before that, I would love to hear from you.
Great young adult book!

The story made me groan at first. There were some fixable errors in the first chapter. Once you get through them, though, it's a delicious dive into the macabre world of theatre. Read morePublished 2 months ago by B. Fowler
