Parman Teen Book Review: ““Red Queen” by Victoria Aveyard

Posted in Uncategorized on January 31, 2017 by parmanlibraryteens

redqueen

Red Queen is a dystopian, fantasy novel I didn’t merely like or enjoy; rather, I loved it. Although this book did not contain the most original characters or ideas, Aveyard executed them phenomenally in order to create a story that was absolutely electric and never had a dull moment. It was so engaging that I found myself holding my breath and avidly turning pages, eagerly awaiting the next plot twist as Mare Barrow, our protagonist, realizes a painful truth: anyone can betray anyone. My favorite part about the novel is the characters, all of whom are beautifully flawed in their own ways. Oftentimes, characters in young adult literature are molded into unrealistic epitomes of human perfection, or sickening villains without a heart or soul. On the other hand, Red Queen boasts characters that are both good and bad, confirming the universal truth that no one is perfect. Overall, Red Queen is a masterpiece, beautifully woven together to create an intricate tale of power and madness, love and rage, and loyalty and betrayal that I would recommend to all fantasy lovers.

We had a lot going on this past Tuesday. With our new cookware, we made strawberry filled crepes drizzled with chocolate. Pictured here are seniors from Reagan HS trying their hand at cooking the crepes.
