Teen reviewer Clare, 14, picked up an advanced reader copy of Michelle Gagnon's Strangelets because a friend suggested she read it. She ended up really enjoying this suspenseful dystopian thriller. Here is her review:
"Strangelets by Michelle Gagnon is difficult to describe without spoiling it, largely due to the amount of twists and turns the story takes. The novel begins with the three main characters dying...until they wake up together at the same eerie, abandoned hospital. The setup was unique, and very much unlike any other novel I had read prior to this. From that point, the story gradually morphed into a dystopian novel and, while I disliked this, the likable and believable characters more than made up for it. The mystery that surrounds what is happening to the characters is what fuels the novel. The answers are all given to you at once, making the second half much less exciting than the first. Despite my complaints, Strangelets is still an interesting and well-written that, while not perfect, has a satisfying ending and plot developments that will have you on the edge of your seat!"
Strangelets was released in April 2013.
