Killer T

AGE RATING: 15+

TEEN RATING: 3.8/5

TEEN OVERVIEW: Killer T starts off brilliantly, with a stunning story, perfectly set up to escalate into an insane plot. However, for whatever reason, Muchamore decided to write Killer T in a slightly ‘disjointed’ manner. Bounding forward in time, on occasion, meaning we lose track of what’s going on in the book and the book’s flow. Rather than being about it’s characters’ journey, Killer T is more about the concept of Gene editing. Great idea, however in my opinion, lacking slightly in it’s implementation.

Orangeboy

AGE CATEGORY:  15+

TEEN RATING:  3.4/5 

TEEN OVERVIEW: I was really looking forward to Orangeboy because of all the awards and prizes to it’s name but, unfortunately the book just didn’t do it for me. The character development was insane but the book was at times slightly slow and maybe a tad unrealistic for a start. As well as this it was quite depressing at times and hard to read… Continue reading Orangeboy
