Synopses:  Claire Danvers is a genus. She is a college freshman and she is 16. She was accepted to places like MIT but her parents thought she was too young to go that far from home. So they sent her to TPU in Morganville, Texas just a few hours from them. They had no way of knowing this quiet little town was not all it seemed to be. At the beginning we find Claire is having trouble with someone in her dorm. She makes the snappy decision to leave the dorm and live off campus. She stumbles upon The Glass house where she meets three friends. Michael Glass, Handsome, sweet musician, Shane Collins, Brooding trouble finder and Eve Rossier, A beautiful goth with a sassy mouth and kind heart. As Claire discovered just what is going on in Morganville she begins to rely more and more on her new friends to make it through life in this small town full of secrets.

My Thoughts: I love YA books and I love a book series. I was excited about this book. (Now that I have read book 1-8 I will try to leave my impressions of the characters in later books out of this one.)  This was a quick read and I really enjoyed the characters. I instantly loved Eve. Her Sass, her look, her smart mouth. The main character was Claire and right at the start I asked what else can happen to this poor child. As I said this is Teen/YA and the main characters are young. 16-18 year olds but it was not too angsty or over the top. It was a great start to a series. There were many characters introduced in this one that I could not wait to find more about. (Oliver, Amelie, Sam) The author has some great characters in this series. 

I gave this one a 4 out of 5.

As I stated I have read 1-8, they were all pretty quick reads, so I will be posting the reviews of those over the course of the next few weeks. 

I was so lucky to be approached by Seventh Star Press to review a few of their books. If you remember back to my first review I reviewed a Stephen Zimmer book. His book is a Seventh Star Press book and they asked me to review a couple of their titles. I am currently reading Redheart by Jackie Gamber and should have that review up soon. I was also given the chance to review some titles from Kensington Press. This has been an amazing experience getting to read (which I love) and sharing my thoughts with everyone. Thanks for the opportunity to share this with you all.
