Our customer reviews

This book was a real disappointment, it had SO much potential too. The Frenzy is very confusing at first and you don't even really know whats going on. After about 100 pages things start to get more interesting, but honestly this book has a load of information that is useless and then BAM at the end it just explains everything and ends. I could think of a couple ways the author could have improved this, this book would have been good if it had been stretched out some. maybe be a series? it seemed very sloppy at the end how everything just happens in a couple pages then ends, the the author just wanted to get done with there work instead of making a nice ending. I must admit i did enjoy the characters, you really feel like you know them when reading, but besides that i couldn't sink in with this book, too sloppy.show more

Strange things have been happening to Liv. Ever since her thirteenth birthday, she has felt cursed - trapped by something she can't explain. Her body is not her own - a transformation has begun and there is no way of stopping it. Her peers make fun of her, and her parents are far from understanding. Liv finds solace in her best friend, Pace, the beautiful, talented jock who is hiding a secret of his own, and boyfriend, Corey, who must hide in the shadows because Liv's family would never condone their relationship. She feels safe in the woods that surround her house, but danger lurks in the trees. A string of murders have been committed and the killer has not been found. So many questions, and very few answers - Liv wants to know the truth, but can she accept the reality that faces her? I am constantly amazed by the brilliance that is Francesca Lia Block. Her stories are lyrical masterpieces that flow effortlessly across the pages. She has a way of speaking to young adult audiences that many other YA novelists have not yet grasped. Her prose is lyrical, lilting, but also frank and unyielding. She has a way of blending the fantastic with harsh reality, and somehow, it works. If you have never read a Block tale before, pick this one up - it's an excellent place to start! *Gold Star Award Winner!show more
