This book is an important one. It gives Mental illness in tweens and teens a voice. It’s deep and sad, but it also resonates joy.
Going outside seems simple right? Just as telling you about this book should also be simple, but it’s not, I barely know where to start. It had me on edge the whole time, I was confused and even frustrated, the solutions seemed so simple but they weren’t. My heart ached, I wanted Ele to be safe, to be free, to understand what the Outside is.
My lovely teenage friend Elizabeth reviewed The Whiz Mob for me. Elizabeth loves to read and although this one was different for her, she had lots of positive things to say about it.
I don’t normally do this but I have to be honest with my readers, I just couldn’t read this book…Yep you heard me right, I tried and tried and I juggled my way through the first couple of chapters. I wanted to enjoy reading about those ghosts…
I am beyond excited to share this review with you my blog readers, it is one of those books that was hard to put down because it was really that good. If I had more free time this would have been read in one day. So why did I love it so much? Read on to see…
Nate reminds me of your typically pre teen and teen (yes I am stereotyping here, and no I probably shouldn’t be), looking a little crazy in the school picture (not from lack of trying to look ‘normal’), driving teachers a little exasperated and denying he is on a date (it was the only seat left…really it was).
I was led on a journey getting to know Jordan/Julian and her/his desire to be accepted, to have her time in the spotlight only having to disguise herself to do it and bonding with a group of guys all unique and valued in their own way.
