«Wolf Girl finds a Nec-romance» is a fantastic author debut! But here is the thing, I don’t like teen stories/YA stuff… However, when I came across Gisele’s book, the title hooked me ^.^ - because, ya know… I like dark stuff and ‘Necromance’ sounded dark to me, as well as part of the blurb. So I gave it a try and…
What a wonderful surprise! What’s special about this book? For starters, the way it is written. Each chapter with the perspective of a character. This way we can see multiple perspectives about some of the events and it is totally cool to learn how each of them experience and see things.
The traits and personalities of the leads and support characters was really well-done. That’s one of my favourite aspects of the writing. I got really impressed by how lively Brendann, Sani and Lamar are. How each of them are completely tridimensional and have a true life story behind them.
The plot twists were also great, some of them you may expect, some may catch you as complete surprise. I went from laughing to sadness, since the story shows funny and cruelly sad reality of Brenndann and her family, specially.
This is a drama-comedy-romance, and if you are into knowing how someone young life’s is going to take a turn, for the worse and the better, you may want to read this book. (Also great for fans of supernatural fiction, this has a cool and light dose of it!)
PS: Almost forgot to add: the book also shows several social issues, like the author points out on her own review, and it was all well done. I got heartbroken by learning about the female lead' life, for example. I think it was very nice to raise some awareness for such things as kids raised in poverty, drug problems and the like.
