Starr Lost by Kim Briggs **Review**
On the run from the Organization, Starr never planned on falling in love.
Starr Bishop’s the complete package. A perfect smile, brains to match, and a winning attitude. Boys want to date her and girls want to be her. She’s the type of girl you want to hate, if only she wasn’t so damn likable. But don’t worry, she’s not interested in your boyfriend. Boys are one complication she can live without.
When the Organization decides she’s not only the model student but the ideal assassin, Starr’ll need a lot more than high test scores and extracurricular involvement to get herself out of that commitment.
Dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood is the last person she’d expect—or even want— to come to her rescue. From opposite ends of Webster High’s social hierarchy, their lives collide in one electrifying moment. Christian isn’t the Goth loner he pretends to be, he’s a part Cherokee, All-American boy who wants to be a hero, Starr’s hero. Christian makes Starr forget that the Organization is after her, but nothing will stop the Organization from collecting their top recruit.
By the way, the spot for junior class president just became available.
What People Are Saying About Starr Fall....
"I was swept up in Kim Briggs' whirlwind of secrets, swoon, and adventure from page one. Beautifully writing combined with a smart, driven protagonist made this a book I couldn't put down.” —Isabel Bandeira, Author of Bookishly Ever After (Jan 2016) and Dramatically Ever After (June 2017)
As the opener in what promises to be a thrilling series, Starr Fall hits the ground running and hits the water swimming. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough as Starr went from a super-achieving but otherwise pretty normal high school junior to a girl on the run from a shady, powerful government (maybe) agency and a deep, dark conspiracy we only see in glimpses. And why has the weird kid from school suddenly become her ultra-hot sidekick, with a connection between them that literally gives off sparks? He’s a lot more than he seems. Every answer raises another question as the reader ricochets between the threat level outside the remote cabin and the heat level inside it. Briggs knows how to crank up both kinds of tension, in the best possible way. Book two can’t come soon enough for this reader! -- Liz Coley, author of the award winning, internationally best-selling Pretty Girl-13
From what little I know, I could be happy here. I could be very happy here. I'm just not sure I want to play house while the Organization exacts their brand of justice on innocent people.
In the continuation of the series Starr Fall, we see our hero and heroine in an adventure that seems to be getting riskier and riskier with every step they take. I loved that this one had suspense, scenes with an adrenaline rush, characters that shocked me and actions that shocked me even more. I enjoyed reading about the character development in most of them and I can't wait to read more about these characters further. Especially Di and Frank, but also Ben and Coda. I feel like I'm so invested to these characters and I want them all to survive the mess they got themselves into.
He creates a charge so powerful we could generate our owwn electricity.
The plot twist near the end somehow became clear to me through the book. If you could ask me about it at the first book I would be shocked as hell, but somehow while reading the second book, it became clear about it. I wasn't a big fan of the particular plot twist, but nonetheless I am truly excited to read more about it and see where this goes.
If you're looking for a sweet, but also suspenseful story, this is the one you have to pick! I'm looking forward to reading the last installment in the series and see the conclusion of it.
