On a side note, I wasn’t sure how to feel about the fact that the weird girl ended up being really hatable. The historical case was solved, but I didn’t understand how Bliss’s story connected. The ending was rushed and anti-climatic. Bliss intheMeadow yep, a real hippie last name is living with her very stereotyped grandmother after her parents flee to Canada to avoid the draft. Views Read Edit View history. There are some truly uncomfortable and hair raising moments in the story.


She mixes facts from the Charles Manson Family Biss, a creepy ghost story, and typical high school drama into a wonderfully creative story. I have this book on reserve at the library, yet I read your entire post. I loved the historical details – tidbits about TV, clothes, customs, the Charles Manson trials, folk songs, civil rights issues – and learning about how Bliss interacts with her new classmates.

Amulet Books Publication date: Bliss is a new student at Crestview Academy in Atlanta, Georgia. I still have many questions Did Sarah Lynn have some sort of power?

Bliss Book Review

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. He was useless and tacked-on; like he was the proverbial love interest with no payoff. But then I thought sequel. The supernatural side of this “power” is never revealed: A lot or a little?

In November,she published Shinewhich is set in rural western North Carolina and deals with a young girl’s search for the perpetrators of a hate crime against her gay friend. One little page written, one whole novel ruined. But Bliss is able to see through much of this superficiality, partly because of her unconventional upbringing her hippie parents raised her on a communeand partly because she is generally a caring, down-to-earth person.


One of Bliss’ new friends hears voices and it turns out to be a vengeful bkiss that lives in the school and tries to take over girls so that she can be myraclr. She’s basically a hippie Anne of Green Gables, though slightly less imaginative.

How is that growth? I definitely recommend it to all avid readers! When Bliss first tries to befriend her, Sandy doesn’t seem interested. Then she seems to interested. Best Book in the Universe I loved it even though ther were very gruesome parts because I could feel it in my soul.

I loved the fluidity of the writing, the suspense, and the swift but lingering pace. I was not expecting this at all when I began this book, and this book alone ensures Lauren Myracle is, for the time being, on my radar.

The book was all over the place and not at all scary. Amazon Music Stream millions of songs.

I do want to talk to some teens about this and see what they think. Just because she and S are one now, her blood voice is no longer heard? Open Preview See a Lbiss Not even gonna finish this, even though I have less than pages left.
