Early Review & Giveaway: NOBODY by Jennifer Lynn Barnes


NOBODY by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Release Date: January 2013
Publisher: Egmont USA
Find Jennifer Online: Website / Blog / Egmont / Goodreads / Twitter / Amazon / Barnes & Noble 
.
About:  Okay, so when you do a search for NOBODY by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, you're not going to find a lot of info. Why? Because the book doesn't release until January 2013. Also, the cover won't be revealed until next week, so check back on the 16th to see it in all it's glory. It's awesome.

So...you want to know more about NOBODY? Keep reading. I promise my review won't be nearly as mysterious as the *nothing* you'll find about this book online. 

My Review: Imagine you were born wrong. Imagine that no matter how hard you tried, no one ever listened to you and seemed to forget your existence the minute you left their sight. And, hell, even when you were in their line of vision, they never really saw you. Imagine that the only thing you've ever wanted was to be loved. To matter. But you won't. You'll never matter to anyone. Ever.

That's a pretty hefty pill to swallow for a fifteen year old. But Claire isn't one to give up. Claire isn't the kind of girl who accepts that she'll always be a nobody.

Now imagine that you've been taught your entire life that you're a nobody. Nothing. You are what you are, and you'll never be anything more. You're dangerous. A killer. That kind of knowledge is powerful. Of course, even the powerful have their weaknesses. Nix's weakness just happens to be Claire.

And...this is where I'm going to stop. Trust me, you don't want me to spoil this one for you. In short: NOBODY is incredible, unforgettable, all kinds of holy-crap-I-want-more-right-now-please-amazing. So good. The characters are extremely well developed; their inner turmoils tangible. I wanted to savor every word on every page.

My Rating:
