Warning spoilers ahead Ivy is a typical seventeen year old, part of the popular group Trying to fit in, doing things she doesn t really want to do because she doesn t want to be alone Things change for Ivy the night her and her friends sneak into the Country clubs swimming pool The night of her accident Now she isn t just the typical seventeen year old, now she can hear the things that no one should Now she can hear the personal things that no one shares with anyone, she can hear the thoughts of those around her With this new ability, not only does she start to doubt who she really is, but she starts to view her friends and those around differently At first the things she hears is like a trickling of water, but as the days past it s like she s standing outside in a hurricane, she is bombarded with voices And one voice stands out from them all A month from now, they ll all be dead. Ivy has a month to figure out who that voice belongs to and to stop him before it s too late While doing this she starts to make new friendships, friends that she doesn t need to change to fit in with For the first time she feels comfortable being just herself.Into the Deep is a well written young adult novel, with mystery, romance, friendship I really enjoyed the story but at times I felt like I knew this story No I haven t read it before, my favorite T.V show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it felt like I was reading the episode Earshot from Season 3 Where the book isn t exactly the same, there are a lot of similar things The ability to hear peoples thoughts, searching the school to find the person who they think is going to kill everyone, This time tomorrow, I ll kill you all BtVS Earshot Over all A great book that, I highly recommend to those who enjoy a well written young adult novel, mystery, coming of age self discovery books Looking forward to reading Hidden Beneath I was given a copy for review from the author Lauryn April Thank you for gifting me this copy. Actual rating 2.5 Into the Deep was an okay story, but at times, it dragged.Ivy was an okay character, but it annoyed me how she took the bombing threat so lightly at times.At one point, she actually asked Brant if they could forget about the whole situation for a couple of days I understand that at the time, she was going through a bit of a rough patch, but really She was seriously going to forget about the bomb threat for a couple of days, when it was so close to happening I really didn t like Ivy s friends They were really annoying.Overall, it was an okay read, but due to the fact that Ivy took the situation so lightly at times, it wasn t as good as it could have been. You can find this review also on my blog www.justfantasybooksadis.blogspot.comReview After Ivy slips in the pool and hits her head on the stairs, she finds herself with the ability to read people s thoughts It takes some time to realise that she s not crazy.But her ability can save the school Or not.A student from her high school wants to blow up the entire school, but Ivy is the only one who knows that Now, that she knows what students are thinking, she realize that she can t trust her friends So she makes new ones Brant Everett is a freak, but Ivy befriends him and shares the secret that makes her a freak, too Toghether, they form their own gang.You have to read the book to find out what will happen next.My opinionThanks so much, Lauryn, for sending me this book It was awesome and really worth to read it I couldn t stop until I finished the 300 pages of the book, and now I m like what it s over.The story was a little rushed, but the author didn t forget any detail I really liked that fact that Brants resembles with Derek, from The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong, VERY well I fell in love with this character Another plus for the book is that the relationships between the characters are very well defined and in constant harmony.In conclusion, I really loved this book up to the last word written by Lauryn and if there will be a second novel, I ll read it Guaranteed I recommend you this book If you ll have the opportunity to read it, don t hesitate.
This starts off as interesting, and gets and so The main character, Ivy, is at first under the influence of a superficial, vain set of girls who see themselves as high flyers but gradually, her new abilities lead her not only to detect a deadly threat to her fellow students but also, that people are often very different from how they appear to be This has happy and unhappy consequences for Ivy, who begins to question her old values.In company with the School Bad Boy colourfully and sensitively drawn Ivy is forced to confront the dangers into which her new, extra sensory powers lead her I particularly like the conjoining of the psychological and the psychic in this book The writing is lively, but there are serious points being made about teen culture The two main characters stand out because they are learning to question the accepted values of their contemparies They are lead into an uneasy partnership and a terrible sense of responsibility.There are a lot of brilliant descriptive touches, so many that it is hard to pick one out, but my favourite is the clouds looked like orange waves rolling in and crashing against the darkening sky.The characters are excellently drawn in this, the pace is well maintained throughout, the tone of realism is impressive, and the contrast between the normal school background of Ivy and her associates makes a telling contrast to her strange experiences This is the third YA I ve really enjoyed of late, and I have to give it a five star rating. Oh my god This is the stupidest book I ve read in while I wanted to like it so bad, that I just kept plowing through, which is not normally my M.O I don t read books I don t like.But this oneI don t know, I just kept hoping that it would get better.Some character developement Some action.Some romance Some intrigue ANYTHING.To be fair, Lauryn April tried I really believe that She tried to give us a love interest in Brant She tried to give us some character growth with Ivy She tried to give us some intrigue with the whole Someone s going to bomb the school stuff It just didn t work The writing is suprisingly good Usually with this level of stupidity, there is bad dialog and horrible editing On that note, we do have a plus.Alright, lets talk about the book It starts off with Ivy sneaking into a private pool with her friends She slips, falls in and hits her head She likely has a bad concussion, but being teenagers who don t want to get in trouble, they all ignore this She goes home, and soon starts hearing voices There is the standard Oh my god, am I crazy stuff, but hearing thoughts is pretty easy to figure out Then comes the controlling it part She can t It gets bad one day in particular, and she passes out at school Ohh, but first she hears the ominous A month from now, they ll all be dead And now the stupidity begins The day after her fainting episode at school, she learns how to control her ability Yep, it s just that simple She looks up some meditating techniques, and it s a real lightbulb moment for her She simply has to turn her ability on and off, like a light switch On Hear thoughtOff No thoughts.Well that was a fun challange for a day and a half Moving on Brant, the bad boy at school, figured out her secret They become tentitive friends, basically because he knows about her and no one else does Thus, she should confide in him Duh That makes total sense Why didn t I think of that Now onto stupid garbage that the rest of the book is about psycho who is going to kill everyone Obviously, they need to find him Their guy was kind enough to give them a timeline in his thoughts, so they know they have until the end of the month That s like, freaking forever for these teenagers Why bother with it now Lets hang out Get to know each other Hang out some Maybe kiss Lets not talk about the guy who s building a bomb when we don t want heaviness to interrupt out light mood Gah I wanted to punch them both in the face.When they re not avoiding the problem altogether, they re coming up with the dumbest plans in history Hey, that creepy kid with the dredlocks supposedly skinned a cat I bet he s totally the guy behind this bomb Problem solved.This is their idea of dudiligence Lets pick someone we think might be behind this sinister plot, go question them, and see if their mental voices match up After they d ruled out their Two, count them, TWO suspects, nothing really happens for most of the book They have an idea to look up people who may have checked out bomb making books from the library, and end up having to wait a week until the computers are fixed Oh well, guess there s nothing else they can do in the mean time Okay, that s enough of my ranting about that Basically, they re the dumbest teenagers that I ve ever read about If Ivy had a motto, it would be What should we do now.That s basically her question after every one of the rediculous attempts to find this guy Another huge problem I had was that once she s figured out how to shut off her mind reading, she very rarely uses it She either doesn t want to hear the thoughts of people around her, no matter how benificial that would be in say Fiding the guy planning to blow up the school It s almost like the author forgets that she gave Ivy this ability for most of the book, and then she ll throw in random thoughts to be like Hey, don t forget she can do this It s rediculous At one point, her 8 year old sister is missing Did not come home They don t know what s happend to her, if she s okay, yadda yadda Ivy and her friends decide to walk the neghbourhood Yes, walk Calmly Not calling Sadie s name Just taking a nice leisurly stroll and hoping to stuble across her I guess I should give the author props for being consistant.Ivy of course, does not use her talent to scan around for her sister I don t know if it doesn t occur to her, or if it didn t occur to the author Really, it s like Lauryn April gave her this talent simply to be able to introduce the conflict and then didn t want it to be a major part of the book That was dissapointing, because the mind reading aspect was a big part of why I was interested in this book The cincher to why I hated Into the Deep was really the characters.They petty, shallow and have such a lack of substance and over abundance of cowardice that it s hard to take the book seriously, let alone enjoy it Read at your own risk. Wicked good book I loved how it touched on bullying, and had a bit of a love story in there as well Brent was an awesome character, and I loved Ivy This was a great book, and I really recommend it

biggest fear in life for my children is being victims of crazy kids at school The book starts off with Ivy telling the story of how it all happened At school, Ivy had a good crowd of friends She didn t look down at people, but she didn t stick up for them too Being shallow and following what everyone else though that was the life right When Christy got a hold of the key to the pool at the Club house, their group of friends jumped at the chance to do a little night time swimming without anyone around At the pool, the girls were having fun Damon was there with Eliza, and Chase was there with

wait for her friends, and she heard Brant, the schools bad boy who was smoking not to far from herProbably a bitch just like Tiana Ivy couldn t help but speak out about herself and her friend and that s when Brant found out about Ivy s secret The noise became too intense at school, getting louder and louder as the day went on when lunch came around, and Ivy opened the doors to the commons area, she became overwhelmed by the thoughts going around, she fainted And just as she started to black out, she heard one thoughtA month from now, they ll all be deadWhoa That was freaky I really didn t know what to think of when I read the blurb on this book but this was not it It was pretty intense if you ask me I really think the author did a great job spelling it out though She brought up good qualities that the youth is struggling with in school.Great story D One my daughter will enjoy reading as well I received this book in exchange of an honest review and all that I can say is this This book was totally awesome Ivy is just a normal high school girl But her normal life changes when she s going out swimming with her friends and by accident she hits her head That was the point that changed her life because she started hearing thoughts At first she doesn t believe in her new powers and thinks of herself as crazy but later on she starts believing in it However, she is not alone The bad boy of her high school, Brant, is there for her, even in her worst state of mind when she accidentally hears someone that says that he wants to kill every single person from her school The problem They don t know who it is and they don t have pretty much time But even so, these two get to know each other and soon they find themselves in love.I liked this book To be honest it reached my top favorite books I loved Ivy s character She was so strong and brave to try and stand up to her friends But , I loved Brant He is not the kind of bad boy we are all accustomed to He s not the type that acts cocky even around the person he loves No This is not Brant He deeply cares for Ivy But let s end the spoilers here Down are a few quotes that I purely loved That time, I couldn t help but roll my eyes Purple I said.Brant turned to look at me with a confused expression Purple isn t a number, IvyHer question took me a little off guard I hadn t taken much time to put my felling for Brant into words I knew I liked him, that I cared about him I didn t think that I loved him I m not sure at that point I really knew what being in love felt like, as I d never been in love before What I did know was that I felt safe with Brant i felt like i could talk to him, tell him anything I felt like he would look after me, like he d keep my secrets safe I knew he made my heart beat faster I knew that I wanted to be around him every second I could manageI thought I d be romantic and surprise you No offense, but sneaking into my room comes off a little creepy and stalkerish then romantic and sweet Nothing bad is going to happen tomorrow, I promise You can t know that I know enough We re the good guys, yeah And the good guys always win
