Review: Crash by Lisa McMann
I'm really not sure how to write this review of mine. I'm not sure what to say and what not to say. So I am sure that my review will not be that long. Because the book is so short. Yet that is also a good thing. I liked that everything happened pretty fast. I didn't have to wait for stuff to happen, hih. Which was good.
Crash is told from the point of view of Jules. Who is pretty adorable. I did like her. I just.. I didn't like the way she thought. The way the book was written. It just didn't feel real to me. Okay, fine, that might be because I was never that teenager. I didn't think like that. Or feel like that. But I do know of others that did. Kind of. And while I disliked how it was written, I did like the writing. Which was a bit odd for me. And I liked it.
I think Jules and her family is Italian. I couldn't be sure, though. As I am not that good with names, lol. But they do own a restaurant. And it is pretty awesome. I loved reading about that. About them making food and delivering it. It was sweet. Then. Her family. I loved her sister, Rowan. She was adorable. And her bigger brother, Trey. Whom I need to get to know even better. He was just all kinds of awesome, I think. I did like her mother. Mostly. But her dad? No thank you. I really hated him a whole lot. Ugh.
The plot in this book is mostly about Jules seeing this vision about a crash that is going to happen. Well, she doesn't know it is going to happen. She thinks she's going crazy. Which I understood very much. I just didn't fully connect, because of the way it was written :p But I liked reading about her vision. About how she figured out more details. About how she knew that Sawyer would die. The boy she has loved from afar for years. Which was kind of really heartbreaking. Yet also adorable in a weird way, hih.
There isn't enough romance in this book. But that is because it is short and it focus on more important things. But there is Sawyer. Who we don't know all that well. Who hasn't spoken to Jules since seventh grade. Which was depressing. Yet she still loves him. Which was kind of weird and adorable yet I loved it. I cannot wait to read more about their romance in book two and three. There better be more, just saying :D Because Sawyer was an interesting character to read about. I can't wait to get to know him.
Anyway. There are more things happening in this book. But I will not mention them, as it would spoil things, I think. With how short the book is. But the book is also good, despite me not loving it. Hoping I will like book two more. <3 But yes. I did enjoy Crash. And I do adore Lisa. I love her middle grade series. Excited to read more from her. And excited to read the next two books in this trilogy. And I do think you should all read Crash. Cause while it is a bit weird, it is also sweet and fun and different.
