This month it’s a close fight between Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas and Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas. It took me forever to decide, but I guess Dangerous Girls did give me more feels… of fear. *evil laugh* This book features some seriously flawed characters (I wanted to hit everyone at some point), a creepy mystery (with creepy suspects) and an ending that will keep you awake at night. -Aimee
I really liked this book. It affected me so much that I cried (which I rarely do)! Matson did a great job of describing the events that were happening to her characters without making the entire novel boring or dragging. I also love the fact that Matson chose to make her characters more realistic! Another thing: Henry was really, really adorable! – Dyan
A Dog’s Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron was my favorite read this month because it was so emotionally touching and had such a unique style and sense of humor. -Zoe
I choose If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I like it because it was so heartwarming and it has been so long since I read a contemporary that affected me so much. -Marga
