Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

With her father in prison, her mother dead, and her eighteenth birthday on the horizon, Kenny Lugo is desperate to belong to someone, something — anything. Her last best chance is her father's girlfriend, Aunt Glo, who has given Kenny a place to stay in her small home. But Glo is struggling herself. Addicted to painkillers and raising her runaway daughter's baby in addition to her own children, Glo's less-than-idyllic family is hardly the situation Kenny has longed for, but certainly better than the streets. The murder of a college girl next door sends Kenny reeling. Already at loose ends, she becomes obsessed with the death of this young woman. And as Kenny searches for some element of truth in this girl's tragic death, she finally finds the meaning and redemption that has long escaped her own life — and from a most surprising source.

For so many young adult protagonists, their main desire is to find home, and in doing so, find themselves. Kenny is a young woman unmoored from the world and her own body. She lives in a world where small crises can (and do) turn big at any time, but she still discovers a path home. Reynolds use of voice, imagery, and figurative language are amazing. I love The Hunger Games, but there is also a huge place in my heart for Reynolds’s Kenny.
