Published: Balzer + Bray - May 17th, 2022

TWIN CROWNS shimmers with wit and passion. Catherine Doyle and Katherine Webber’s characters navigate both high-stakes palace intrigue and complex relationships, but still make time for clever lines and thrilling action. Their world of Eana is deep in immersive history and vivid geography, and proves itself worthy of being saved by the protagonists with every trickle of exposition. The twin protagonists have distinct, memorable personalities, and the plot is adroitly balanced between their entwining stories to create suspense and contrast. Overall, TWIN CROWNS is an expertly choreographed dance between the political and the personal that gives overdue representation and acknowledgement to the strong princesses who are so often dismissed or overlooked in stereotypical male-dominated fantasies.  -Mikey, 15

GONE DARK was a wonderful book! I feel like it really accurately showed what could happen in certain types of human-caused apocalypses. Some parts of it are really dramatic; however it balances everything really well and avoids being overdramatic. I also think that the characters in the book are really well-developed, and their disadvantages and advantages are really well-balanced. Overall, I feel like a lot of work was put into this book, and I think that that work has really paid off and made an excellent book.  -Axel, 13

This story captures every book lover's dream . . . traveling into your favorite book. What could be better?? That’s what Adelle and Connie think, until they travel into the book “Moira” and discover that things are not what they seem. The plot is completely scrambled and characters completely different. This book will leave you thinking about it for days (trust me, I would know). Definitely give it a try if you like a twisting adventure and charming characters.  -Emerson, 16
