Road trip--way home. I finished Fearless. In an hour. Now, to feel semi-accomplished, I'm gonna try and read Sam and Run in the 2 hours, 26 minutes it takes for me to get home (well, as of now).
Title: Fearless (Gaia Moore #1)
Author: Francine Pascal
Pub: SimonPulse (aka, Simon & Schuster)
Pub year: 1999 (it doesn't seem THAT outdated...)
Genre: YA Fiction/ Sci-Fi Action
Pages: 189--paperback copy
“You see, I have this handicap. Uh, that's the wrong word. I am hormonally challenged. I am never afraid. I just don't have the gene or whatever that makes you scared.
"I guess you'd say I'm fearless."
(^Page 8 of Fearless)
It was a good read, very funny and fast paced. Gaia is a hilarious character, and like Cammie Morgan (Gallagher Girls series) and Jason Bourne (Bourne series), all the while mixing in drama from high school. "Mean Girls" meets "Alex Rider".
There were some downsides, though. The writing style was different, which isn't wrong, but was a little confusing if you didn't comprehend it the right way. Many different POVs throughout.
Despite the cons, there are more pros--in my opinion. I got it at B&N for $10.99--totally a steal! It's a 3-pack, with Fearless, Sam, AND Run, all in one book. WOOT!
Off to finish the next two...in two...
