Book Review: Run by Kody Keplinger

Book Review: Run by Kody Keplinger

Ever since I first read The DUFF – which, incidentally, was one of the first books that got me into YA contemporary romances – Kody Keplinger has been one of my favorite authors of all time. Obviously, that means that I have rather high expectations, and reviewing books when they don’t live up to those expectations is ridiculously hard. Run was not exactly a Debby book.

Getting the review request made my day. And the book itself? Definitely enjoyable. I suppose where this book is strongest is in it’s intensely unique story.

Every time he closes his eyes, he gets transported into the […]
