Review: The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff


I wasn't actually planning on reviewing anything for a bit, but I just finished this awesome book, and I really wanted to share my thoughts with you all. :)
I absolutely loved The Replacement. It was completely different than anything I've ever read, sure it had certain elements that were similar, but overall it was pretty unique.

The setting was incredibly established and it was done in a beautiful way, Brenna certainly has a way with words. I loved how the story seemed to unveil because no one really wanted to face the truth and they were all so happy just pretending like nothing was out of the ordinary. Such an oblivious town, and so many secrets.

I loved Mackie! He's such an intriguing character and I loved seeing his side of this story. Emma was amazing too, I loved the relationship between her and Mackie, so awesome. All of Mackie's friend were hilarious or just plain epic, and although they may not have had much dialogue or a huge role in the story they were all always there for Mackie and they're the type of friends anyone would want in their corner. And Tate, man she makes me wanna go out a punch someone if they ever mess with me, she is the perfect example about how girls don't always have to be docile and catty. She's one female character that we should all be looking up to, and I'm not saying that we should be violent, but we should stand up for ourselves and those we love, and we should accept others for who they are...even if they are a little strange. ;)

Overall, I thought that The Replacement was a fantastic story, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes stories that are fantastical, and a little eerie...especially if you like to look for truth among secrets and ignorance. :)
 
If anyone else has read The Replacement, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
And if you haven't read it yet, are you thinking about reading it? Why or why not?
 
Happy Reading Everyone!!!
