Still Point (Awaken, # 3) by Katie Kacvinsky Book Review

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17393016-still-point?from_search=true
In the final installment to the trilogy begun with "Awaken, " Maddie returns home to make her final stand against Digital School, and uncovers deeply guarded secrets about her family an new truths about herself.
Still point is a stunning conclusion to the Awaken series.

Maddie and Justin continue to fight Digital School, while Maddie attempts to salvage what's left of her life outside of DS. She grapples with wanting her family, and fighting against the restraints of it.

I was pretty pleased with the way this series concluded. Some parts of it felt sort of repetitive but there was a lot more action in this one, and some surprising plot twists. A lot of near death scenarios as well as a death. *sad face*, and some new characters *happy face*.

A lot happened in this novel and it kept me on my feet for most of the book but the thing that makes this book remarkable is the lessons you learn while reading it. It's not just that you enjoy it--it's that you see something different, you're expected to see something different--you learn.

The characters are strong, and courageous in a way many of us aren't and I think that's what will make readers want to read this series, after all it's what grabbed me. It's about being courageous in spite of fear, and knowing that things are changeable--if you want them to be.

It's was a really intriguing, thought provoking conclusion and I'm thoroughly pleased with it's end.

I think readers will enjoy this novel for it's original yet realistic plot, and I think it's something that can be passed on to anyone, of any age. I think the fact that it's appropriate for many ages will allow it to be read and cherished for years to come.

  1. I haven't read this series but it sounds like a great read. I love a good conclusion to a series, too. Nothing can ruin a whole series more than a crappy ending! It also sounds like it has well developed characters! Great review, Jazmen!
