Hey sis! Confession, I love me a good teen flick, kind of embarrassing for an adult, but it’s true. I also love when a book can keep me guessing! Reckless Magic by Rachel Higginson is about Eden a spunky 16 year old girl in a mixed up world, and with each twist and turn in her adventure I got more and more sucked in!
“Sixteen-year-old Eden Matthews has been in and out of private schools for the last two years. She can’t seem to stop herself from closing them down. Kingsley is her last chance to finish high school.
Only Kingsley isn’t like the other schools she’s been to. The students are different. But, then again, so is she. After meeting Kiran Kendrick, the mysterious boy who seems to be the source of all her problems, she is suddenly in a world that feels more make-believe than reality.”
For me you know a book is good when it keeps you up late at night because you can’t put it down. The romance is fun and the writer kept me guessing on Kiran’s character and motives… good or bad? This was definitely a top favorite for me.
*One conversation about belief in God, but not really any religious themes.
Additional confession: This book is the first in the Star-Crossed series, after book 4 of this series Eden’s story ends. The romance, language and violence creeps up to high with books 5-7 in the series; with the romance going beyond my liking. –A.B.
