Blog Tour: Strangelets By: Michelle Gagnon Review and Giveaway!







Title: Strangelets
Author: Michelle Gagnon
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Published: April 9th, 2013
Goodreads Summary:

17-year-old Sophie lies on her deathbed in California, awaiting the inevitable loss of her battle with cancer…
17-year-old Declan stares down two armed thugs in a back alley in Galway, Ireland…
17-year-old Anat attempts to traverse a booby-trapped tunnel between Israel and Egypt…

All three strangers should have died at the exact same moment, thousands of miles apart. Instead, they awaken together in an abandoned hospital—only to discover that they’re not alone. Three other teens from different places on the globe are trapped with them. Somebody or something seems to be pulling the strings. With their individual clocks ticking, they must band together if they’re to have any hope of surviving. 

Soon they discover that they've been trapped in a future that isn't of their making: a deadly, desolate world at once entirely familiar and utterly strange. Each teen harbors a secret, but only one holds the key that could get them home. As the truth comes to light through the eyes of Sophie, Declan, and Anat, the reader is taken on a dark and unforgettable journey into the hearts of teens who must decide what to do with a second chance at life

My Thoughts:

I was really excited to read Strangelets, I read Michelle debut last year Don't Turn Around and it was a great thriller, and I was hoping that this book would be just as good. Strangelets had me on the edge of my seat, you didn't find everything out right away, you were just as confused as the characters. Each character came from a different place and had me wondering what was going on, who were these teenagers and what did they all have in common. 

When all three of  these teenagers wake up in a strange room, they have no idea how they got here just that they were all facing death and now they are here, in a strange and desolate world of Long Island. I don't want to give much away in the summary of this book because you have to read it to enjoy it and I don't want to spoil it.
Each character gave me something to want to know about them, how did they end up here  and I wanted to know more about their pasts, we only got a glimpse of them before they woke up in the different and strange world. They each had distinct and different personalities and I loved how diverse each one was, from a different part of the world. 

Overall, this book was a great read but I was a little disappointed only because I was hoping for a bit more  action, there was of course action and suspense but, for some reason I wanted more but, Gagnon  definitely didn't disappoint!
