Finished Sammy keyes and the Runaway Elf and I cant believe i didn't want to read it before because of the weird title, it absolutely GREAT! This was a true page turner for me maybe not as intense as SM & the search for snake eyes but defiantly another emotional roller-coaster and that's the thing that iv realised about SM books, Wendelin Van Draanen connects every action towards the end result. Every snooping and mistake is a nudge towards the final result and the journey is full of so many emotional upheavals like the feeling of drowning or the confusion of life and relationships makes this series so damn GOOD! Its truly different to so many books out their and I recommend it to ANYONE!!!
OK so you n=may read this and think 'Why the hell do I wanna read a sob-story?' and the answer is I totally phrased the emotions wrong its not full on brawling its the life of a teenage girl who lives illegally in a Senior Highrise while her mother makes her way in Hollywood and no dad.
God I really want to read the latest three out, That's the thing about living in UK The bloody books ain't even out down here. =] :
- Sammy Keyes and the Psycho Kitty Queen <--Ordered from Amazon should come any day soon (!!!)
- Sammy Keyes and the Dead Giveaway
- Sammy Keyes and the Wild Things. <-- Heard that its like totally good and that we see more of Casey which is awesome!
So lets put this to punctuality (god I hate that word it reminds me of school...)
