{Book Review} The Rules by Stacey Kade

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Back Cover:
1.     Never trust anyone.

2.     Remember they are always searching.

3.     Don't get involved.

4.     Keep your head down.

5.     Don't fall in love.

Five simple rules. Ariane Tucker has followed them since the night she escaped from the genetics lab where she was created, the result of combining human and extraterrestrial DNA. Ariane's survival--and that of her adoptive father--depends on her ability to blend in among the full-blooded humans, to hide in plain sight from those who seek to recover their lost (and expensive) "project."

But when a cruel prank at school goes awry, it puts her in the path of Zane Bradshaw, the police chief's son and someone who sees too much. Someone who really sees her. After years of trying to be invisible, Ariane finds the attention frightening--and utterly intoxicating. Suddenly, nothing is simple anymore, especially not the rules.
The Host meets Hunger Games.

The Rules by Stacey Kade captured me so completely, so perfectly, that I responded in the only way possible: turned back to the beginning and started again.

Readers read because they love it. There's a journey, an adventure waiting for us between the pages of a book. Simply put, some adventures are better then others. But for those of us who read a lot, it becomes harder and harder to find something truly great. Something that rises above average and better than average to become something you shove in your friends' and families' faces and demand they read, knowing full well they'll thank you later. You wouldn't even deny your worst enemy--the girl who hit you in the crosswalk and drove off (true story)--the opportunity to read it.

Also, I'm really hard to surprise. Most authors are, but Kade totally shocked me, which turned my love for The Rules up a notch.

Easy one of my favorite books of all time. Right up there with Hunger Games, Poison (Zinn), and everything Lauren Oliver. If I ever met Kade, I'd embarrass myself by turning into a complete fan girl. I want a signed copy!

It comes out in April. Preorder it now.
