This review is from: The Ivy (Hardcover)
The summary sets up the book at a college, which is perfect for me because it's one of my favorite settings to read about. This fact alone made it one of the first BEA books I picked up to read, and guess what - I really loved it!
I didn't love it for the same reason I loved Courtney Summer's Some Girls Are (excellent character development) or Susan Beth Pfeffer's This World We Live In (outstanding post-disaster world building) - what you should know, before I go any further, is that books can get a great score from me for very different reasons - The Ivy is a great book purely for the entertainment factor.
A good amount of drama, but it wasn't unrealistic. I got to love and hate some characters, and the plot really kept me wanting to read - perfect combination for a lighter read.
The Ivy was a great "college life" book that kept me entertained throughout. While I may not be happy that it ended in a bit of a cliffhanger, I can't wait to read the sequel!
