Alexa S. - The concept of Adrenaline Crush is pretty neat! I like that it really explores Dyna’s understanding of herself, as well as the relationships in her life. Even though the short length still stumps me, and I couldn’t get into the story well the first time I tried, I’m glad to hear that it was pretty good.

Lea @ YA Book Queen - Glad the author managed to fill those 192 pages – short books always make me nervous (although Something Like Normal managed to pleasantly surprise me – that book is amazing).

Nice review! 🙂

Jen @ Pop! Goes The Reader - I can still remember how shocked I was the first time I learned how short this novel is but I’m happy to hear that (for the most part) it doesn’t negatively affect the depth and resonance of the story itself. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this novel on NetGalley and now I’m even more excited to begin it having read your review. Any sort of examination of familial relationships in YA literature is disappointingly rare, so I was particularly happy to hear that this was something Crompton touched upon. While it may not leave a lasting impression or prove a book I re-read again and again, I’m still really inspired by the subject matter and I can’t wait to experience it all firsthand 🙂 Thank you for the great, balanced review, Estelle!
