The Lovely Reckless

The Lovely Reckless - Kami Garcia I loved this, and I don't generally read YA contemporary OR give out 5 star reviews easily... I've read all Garcia's other books, but didn't connect with any of them as much as I did with this story. It has an almost vintage feel to it, for me at least, despite being her (only) contemporary YA fic - sort of Outsiders and 80s racing-cool and classic manga or something... She tied together trauma and diverse storylines beautifully, in a way that I bought into, but without being so dark and gritty that it was just depressing. Honestly, I can't really put my finger on why, but I really enjoyed this trip. Add it to your tbr, and try not to let it sit for as long as I did!
