REVIEW for The Mosts


















 Thank you so much Melissa, for sending me this great book!


TITLE: The Mosts

AUTHOR: Melissa Senate

GENRE: YA

RATING: 4 Stars




Okay, I will own up and admit that the first few pages of this book made me wonder if I was finally hitting upon the one book, written by one of my favorite authors, Melissa Senate that I was actually not going to enjoy. However, as soon as I got into the storyline (about 15 pages in) I was hooked.

The Mosts is, hopefully, the first book in a series .....and explores what its like to be a teenager, who just wants to "fit in" and...gets her wish - although - it may just end up, perhaps, not being (or maybe it is) exactly what our main character, Madeline has always thought it would be.

The main character is interesting because she is not a particularly likeable person, although she is not horrible either. Kind of in the middle, not actually sure where she herself should be and how she should act. This kind of makes her different than many characters I read about.

I also found myself liking the fact that this book starts off with Madeline's relationship with her boyfriend, pretty much on the rocks and just gets worse.

This story is fun because you find yourself immersed in the storyline by rooting for the "Nots" - although, you may find yourself identifying the "Mosts" on some level.

I loved this book, read it in a few days and am looking forward to the next installment???

I bet I would identify with the "Nots" more - the book sounds great!
