My main issue was that I had trouble connecting with the MC for a bit, but overall it's a great read. Parents are looking for a clean read for their tweens and teens this is it. I think teens who have been affected by family issues would enjoy the book very much too!
A real emotional page turner worth reading for any fiction fan.
The longer review:
I was ready for a yellow brick adventure in a twist on a classic. While the twister in this story is called “the witch,” and a few character nicknames, the relation to any OZ powered world ends there. Bricks is a realistic fiction novel, a little outside my norm, but definitely worth the read.
Bricks is an emotionally substantial read. The feelings fly out of every chapter in a way that is hard to capture just once in a story, never mind cover to cover. Davidson on several occasions fit several emotions into a few lines in such a fluid and natural way, it was amazing. The amount of anger, frustration, anxiety, regret, and more that come off the page really hit the read and will keep you emotionally invested in the story.
Cori, a prom-queen-hopeful senior and main character, is a literary wonder. She is stubborn, oblivious, headstrong, full of self-centered ulterior motives, obsessive, very hypocritical, and quite spiteful. Yet somehow she feels entirely human you can’t help but root for her. She sounds like a perfect Disney villain yet is likeable.
Worth the read. The writing is excellent and makes the book easy to enjoy.
Where the book lost half a star:
A big bomb was dropped early in the story, and I had a feeling Cori would drag it out the issue till the end of the story. IT was really drawn out though, she really held on to the issue too long. She really harped on it down to the end.
The other issue that bothered me was the insurance issue that her parents had to deal with. Long story short property transfers to next of kin so the family tie ups with the insurance company could have been fixed up real quick if the family really thought about it. That would have solved some of the conflict lines in the book so I suppose it had to go the way it did.
