Blog Tour: I Rize by S.T. Anthony

Young Adult
Date Published: 7/23/2013

From a poetic point of view, Miss Nora’s classroom is my Garden of Eden. Everything is so perfect and peaceful during those fifty minutes that I am in her class each day. 

Then the stupid bell has to ring and ruin everything. 

That annoying, ringing bell taints my ears from evil lurking the halls. The ringing of the bell tempts me to take one step out for the next class. 

And when I do, all hell breaks loose. 

When evil walks the halls of Valley High, Adny’s life is put to the ultimate test. Three weeks before senior graduation, she leaves a series of videos behind for her best friend to relive the days leading up to the moment that would impact everyone who crossed her path. Adny’s family and close friends search within themselves and the outside world for not only who would hurt her, but why. 

The search would be one they won't regret, but one they'd hope to forget. 


My Review:
This was a good effort and had its ups and downs for me. Lets start with the positives. I really love the premise of the book. Bullying is a subject that every parent should discuss with their children and I really believe this was a great insight into it. Next up, the emotion that this story evoked was powerful. I think the way S.T. Anthony has managed to connect the reader to the character was great.

The main miss was on the storyline and its pacing, I felt it was a bit rushed in parts and a bit too slow in parts. I think that if it felt like if it wouldn't have been so choppy, it would have made it tons better. 

Definitely a Tragic and Heartbreaking read about a topic that is so real in today's society. 

I have had a crazy imagination since the old kindergarten days and excited to finally put it down on paper. I am currently in college and loving every moment so far. My love to pursue medicine and to write is my passion in life!

I am also true blood obsessed and my eyes will be glued to the TV every Sunday. I am super excited to be releasing my first self published book called I RIZE.
