Format: Paperback
Speechless is the only way I can describe how I felt after I read this book. I received it at noon, and didn't stop reading it until I had finished it that night at 9pm. It was beautifully written (even more so because it was a teenager who wrote it) and incredibly deep; there were many morals and ideas going in every direction. I connected to this book in a way I have never connected to anything else before, and by reading Phoenix Ashes, I reevaluated parts of my life I had never previously even thought about.
The characters were so thought-out and well-developed that I felt like they were actual people. They came together perfectly (or forcefully did the opposite when it came to Blake and Zac, as the protagonist and antagonist of the story). Each event flowed into the next, and though at times I felt it was a little quick paced, it was never rushed or hurried.
It was touching, beautiful, creative (I thought Minty was very original), and more than once I cried--by the end, tears were streaming down my face. It has definitely made a spot on my favorite books of all time list. Way to go, Aimée! :)

Aimee uses great description to create a remarkable story. I loved her book! It is the story about a boy named Zac who is faced with the troubles of growing up. In between his search to find himself and his problems with his cousin and uncle, he discusses his life with Minty, a man who comes in his dreams. It is left up to the reader to decide whether or not Minty is real. This novel is very creative and anyone who remembers what it's like to be a teenager will love it. I can't wait for the next book in the series! What is so amazing, is that Aimee wrote this when she was only 15!

This story will take your emotions on a rocket ride. At times you will cry for the main character, Zac. Other times you will want to grab him by the neck. But, in the end, you will love this screwed up little kid that reminds you of someone you have known all your life. The best part is that its only the first book in the series!

this is a very good first effort for someone so young. she did a good job of throwing plot twists at you. when you think you know what is going to happen next, you are probably wrong, and i always appreciate that since i hate predictable stories. i am looking forward to the next book in this trilogy.
