Review: Damage by Anya Parrish
« on: April 26, 2012, 10:02 AM »
Name of the book: Damage

Genre: Young Adult, Thriller, Romance

Book publish year: 2011

Rating (out of 5): 5!!!

Brief intro: There was a time when I prayed for Rachel to be real. Until the night I learned she'd always planned to kill me. When Dani was eight, she fell from a building. No one believed her claim that she was pushed by Rachel . . . her imaginary friend. It took years of therapy to convince Dani that Rachel wasn't real. Now fifteen, Dani wants to make it as a dancer. But a deadly freak accident sends Dani a terrifying message: Rachel is back, she's real, and she'll stop at nothing to kill Dani. Complicating matters is Jesse, the school bad boy who's being stalked by his own invisible childhood nemesis. Dani and Jesse join forces to learn why their astral tormenters are back. Their investigation leads to a horrifying discovery—and the terrible experiment that binds them to each other.

Your review: Without any doubt, this is one of the best YA books I've read. In general, I don't like YA. I'm forced to get back to the genre over and over again only because all the interesting topics seem to be only in these kinds of book. However, teenage heroes didn't bother me at all in Damage. In fact, they were so nice and likeable that I wouldn't want them to be adult (like I wish they were in so many books I currently read).

The author did a great job on combining fast-paced, breathtaking action with believable romance that doesn't sound too cheesy or too cold. I found the topic of imaginary friends cool and it lived up to my expectations and some. I would highly recommend this book to anyone in search of a few quality evenings, gripping your book or mobile device ;)
