A novel that brought a lively discussion to our book club meeting. Two opposite opinions: some loved or hated the book! And then there were those, who couldn’t really decide.
BUT: read for yourself and accompany Kaz, Inej, Nina, Matthias, Jesper and Wylan on their seemingly impossible heist to the ICE COURT!
Three more things we can promise: here are three different views of students on how thrilling, captivating and important this book is at once.
It’s a book, it’s a podcast and it will haunt you. Three things I can promise.
For our last book club meeting, the boys and girls attending have read a book written in a very unique style! Here are two recommendations that might persuade you to pick up the book and expand your reading experience.
No crying. No snitching. Get revenge.
„It’s time to finally get on to Truly Devious’ tracks.“
*ATTENTION – ATTENTION* A series is being recommended here: Maureen Johnson’s TRULY, DEVIOUS – if you haven’t read either of the books, STOP reading this recommendation and read the book first! (The following paragraphs contain spoilers!)
The book “Vanishing Girls” by Lauren Oliver is a novel about two sisters, Nick and Dara. They have a good relationship and would do everything for each other. But then a car accident changes their lives and Dara starts to avoid Nick. At the same time, a girl called Madeline Snow vanishes. Nick starts to work at FanLand, a funfair, where she works with Parker, her best friend. But that friendship does not exist any longer, because he fell in love with Dara. During the book, Dara’s personality changes and for Nick Dara turns into a stranger, she starts to recognize a lot of terrible things about Dara and her strange behaviour. Does she still know her sister?
SPOILER ALERT!!!! „Vanishing Girls“ has a huge and unexpected plot twist, which makes you want to read the book again and which makes the reading experience worthwhile. The novel’s storyline is very gripping, even though an annoying part of the book is that there are pictures in it, which kind of destroys the images you draw in your head. Besides, there are always posts from tumblr about the search for Madeline. In my opinion, there are too many of them, it is influences the pace of reading negatively and distracts from the storyline.
Still, I would definitely recommend this book to everybody who likes gripping and amazing stories. I think the book is a good one and worth reading.

Three girls, the first, Summer, beautiful and the leader, but lonely, the second, Brynn, brave and cheeky, but truth to be told the softest, the third, Mia, mute and a dancer, but inwardly, screams all the words she has never said. A book, Lovelorn, which has never been ended and a fanfiction of three girls. A Shadow, lonely and can’t escape from Lovelorn. A murder, one victim, Summer, stabbed seven times and left behind in a story. And last but not least, three murderers, Brynn, Mia and Owen, the monsters of Brickhouse Lane. There is only one catch: They didn’t do it!
„We were just girls, and there were only two of us.“
