REVIEW for Victim Rights


















Thank you to Red Deer Press for sending me this book.

TITLE:              Victim Rights

AUTHOR:         Norah McClintock

GENRE:            YA

RATING:           3 Stars

I wasn't aware that this book was part of a series, but I have to say that it works as a stand alone, although it would probably be great to read the entire series.


I rated this book a 3 star because, while I thought it was a good read, I found myself taking a long time to get through it, which is always a sure sign that I am not as engaged as I should be.

I like that the author touches on some very difficult situations - making our main character Ryan Dooley a very flawed character that is always "this close" to the brink of doing something that will hurt him and other people.

There is a dark tone to this novel that gives it a sharp edge. On the other hand, the relationship between Dooley and his girlfriend (who serves as the catalyst in propelling the story forward) sounded a little bit off to me and I am not sure why.

I think that is my entire problem with this book - there was something a little off, but I can't quite figure out what it is.
