If anyone else is interested in getting this book for a young teen, I thought I would share some content you might be interested in knowing about (no specific spoilers). There is some gory and disturbing violence, including two gruesome murders. There is a likable character who seems very promiscuous and is described as wearing very provocative clothing and as always thinking about and looking for sex. Teenage drinking occurs at several instances, including as a party-game that is described as a highlight of senior year. The drinking is referred to several times in a positive way; it's something fun they snuck off to do and there were no particularly bad consequences. There is some intense kissing and touching of bodily areas like the scalp, back, arms, and it's pretty clear hormones are engaged and the characters want more. The book goes no further than first base. I didn't note any instances of vulgar language.
If you're looking at this one for your younger teen or tween, hopefully this helps you determine whether it would be appropriate in your situation. If you think maybe not, you might consider remembering the title for a later time--it's a good one!
The premise of the book is rather simple. If Eureka (I have found it!) cries, the world will change in a profound and devastating way.
Some characters try to make her cry.
Some characters try to stop her from crying.
Some characters try to make her die.
Some characters try to stop her from dying.
Some readers slog through to the end.
Some readers stop halfway through.
The book is incredibly slow. The slowness is compounded by the almost immediate realization that if the girl would just cry, one could stop reading and move onto another book. Cry already!
While I'm a fan of the author, this book was almost interminable torture. I just wanted Eureka (I have found it!) to cry and end this all.
Where can you find a book that I barely finished and will most assuredly never revisit? Eureka! I have found it!
What did I like? Eureka for one, she's a great main character. Her life has been devastated and everything has turned on it's ear with her Mom's death. She honestly feels she has nothing to live for but Brooks and her Mom's memory. And then a strange boy comes into her life and sets things into motion that changes everything. Yeah, I like her. I also like Ander, yes he's mysterious and yes we know there are some things he's hiding, but I wanted to know what those were and I was cheering for him through the whole book. I also loved the setting. Lousiana, but not New Orleans really drew me in (not that I don't love New Orleans stories, but it was interesting to see a slightly different more small-town area). And the plot, what was not to love about that. It's fast-paced, I read most of it in one afternoon and gripping. I cared about the characters and I was dying to figure out just where the book and the series were heading. So that made for a book I could not put down.
What I didn't like? While the ending wraps up that book fine, I don't want to wait another 6 months-1 year until the next book!Read more ›
**THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS**
TEARDROP has the same format as FALLEN: a girl goes through tragedy, meets a mysterious guy whom she's instantly attracted to, then learns she is tied to this mysterious guy and has a supernatural destiny. There is the teen angst, the petty jealousies, the whole "you're in great danger...but I'm not going to tell you what it is" element throughout. The urgency doesn't build until the last quarter of the book. But I am on board with this series.
Eureka Boudreux is an angry, hurting teenager. These emotions are done very well. However, I found her scattered--one second she's thinking one thing, the next she's changing her mind. I'd try to empathize with her, but most of the time I was frustrated. I couldn't agree with some of her choices concerning her insta-love interest and her best friends. It's not until a quarter of the way in when she finally puts things into perspective. There is a potential love triange (of course) that is exasperating and unnecessary. The insta-love interest was not fleshed out much, but since this is a planned trilogy, I'm thinking he'll be given more screen time.
The world building is both a great strength and weakness. The Louisiana bayou is brought to beautiful life by Ms. Kate's descriptions. This also causes endless paragraphs of what things look like, who's who in Eureka's school, etc.Read more ›
