Review : Departures

My review:

Departures was very hard for me to get into. It is made up of two different stories by these authors both obviously directed toward preteens. I often enjoy books meant for younger audiences but this was not one of them. Even though the characters were all high school age I believe the writing and storylines are more befitting a 10 or 11 year old.I had a hard time trying to like the characters and often found most of them quite annoying. The stories also left much to be desired plot wise as well. I felt like there was not really a story being told. I feel so horrible because this is the first bad review I have ever had to publish but I feel I should be honest. I do think that this book could be good if targeted to the appropriate age group though.

**Disclosure a free copy of this book was provided to me by Waterbrookmultnomah blogging for books program in exchange for my honest review.**
