Snippet: "Sometimes I couldn't believe I'd had any other life besides reading a dead girl's words and watching rain beat brown leaves off the trees."
Summary: Reading the journal of the high-society girl he was secretly involved with for a year helps high school senior Colt cope with her death and come closer to understanding why she needed him while continuing to be the girlfriend of a wealthy classmate.
Review: The Secret Year is a truly amazing story. It's quite short which is both good and bad. It's good because it's easy to read in one sitting which is needed because it is addictive. I found myself wanting to know more and more and more. It's also bad because it ends, and I wasn't ready for The Secret Year to end, but it did.
Usually when I read a book I find one or two quotes that I think are written really well and are either suspenseful or just really nice quotes. As I was reading The Secret Year I found so many quotes that were brilliant. Jennifer Hubbard is one of the best writer's I have read for 2010, she truly is amazing and I commend her for writing The Secret Year.
Emotions run high when reading The Secret Year. I felt so sad for Colt, I was mad at times too. More at the way that people treated Colt or reacted to certain things.
The ending was really well-done too. I was actually surprised when the book ended but at the same time I felt it was wrapped up nicely and left me feeling a little sad.
The Secret Year will blow your mind. If you haven't read it yet, I suggest you go out and read it now. The Secret Year is a book that is not to be missed!
