Earlier this week, I reviewed (and recommend, with reservations) Liz Fichera's debut novel for teens, Hooked. However, I keep coming back to the cover--it just doesn't work, in either the U.S. or Australian edition.
Three things lingered with me after I finished reading Hooked:
- It's not a romance;
- Setting is almost a character in and of itself; and
- It's a rare YA novel in that it really got the "feel" of sports right.
