Review - Numbers Rachel Ward

I was very excited about reading this book as I thought that it sounded awesome as a concept. Sadly for me it didn't live up to expectations. I didn't warm to the main character at all. Yes she had her share of problems but so do a lot of people. I thought the entire main part of the story was very childish. While not a prude I thought that was an excessive amount of swearing for a young adult book (it would certainly put me off recommending it to teenagers - yes I know kids swear but I don't want to endorse it). I am still interested to read the sequel as I do like the ideas behind it but I'll wait until I can get it cheap rather than buying it full price.

I'm sorry the book was disappointing! I hate it when that happens.

I saw that you are a part of the Debut Author Challenge! That is so amazing that you are supporting debut authors and I only recently found out that I am going to be one!!! I wanted to ask if you wouldn’t mind heading over to my blog and giving me your opinion. As a blogger turned author I would really appreciate it and the publisher is still giving out ARCs so you might have a chance at a free copy! Thank you and I hope you will stop by and check out The Thirteenth Chime!

Sincerely,

P.S.- My release date if Friday the 13th (August this year) isn't that crazy?
