This was the third book in the yearbook triliogy I ve been so excited for this book to come out because I wanted to know what happened from everyone in first day Call me crazy, but I like books like this Even though there were some parts that were a little to cheesy for me, I still thought it was a fun read I was a little disspointed that this book was about the younger people you didn t hear much about in first day or yearbook I was hoping it would be about those from the previous books but they still made appearances in this book I think Allyson is a very talented writer and has a bright future ahead of her with the LDS fiction fans. I am grateful I was able to read this series back to back or I think I would have been lost This was my favorite of the series, but still was missing something It was great to see where many of the characters from First Day and Yearbook ended up Cute read, just not a favorite. this was the third book to the yearbook series it was a quick read, well at least for me i had nothing else to do after getting surgery well i really liked it if tied it all together or if you want i suppose that it could be the lead up to another book in the series but really good with lessons of choosing the right and supporting others. Although the story was good, this is one of those books that isn t really a YA, yet not an adult book per se either If there were such a thing as college age book, then that s where this one would most likely fit I kept forgetting that one of the POV characters was a guy as I read befcause the voice sounded like a girl, and then suddenly something in the action of the story would remind me It was weird Because I hadn t read the other books in the series, the Reunion epilogue threw me and I had to sit and think for a few minutes before I understood how it was significant and not just a reason for the book s title Most fans of LDS fiction will probably like it, especially teenage girls who tend to read all LDS fiction with the same lack of discrimination as to target audience. I really liked the first two books in this trilogy , but this last one was kinda odd compared to the others I m giving of a 3.5 stars The Prologue Epilogue had nothing to do with the stories, except that it s about Mr Thomas But there s no other part of his story in the book Just odd I also thought there should ve been a little character development for Jenna Even though she s not a main character, her back story was a bit lacking I don t know how to explain it, but this book just didn t have the same meat as the first two But it was still enjoyable. really a 3.5 Addie Sherman Dave s sister loves snowboarding with her 3 guy friends in Seattle They treat her like a guy even though she wishes Rob wouldn t When her grades slip, she s grounded from snowboarding and has to babysit her sister in law who s on bedrest Sam Choi Michaela s brother is her best friend and he s struggling with mission plans, but his parents are busy with Michaela s wedding and don t notice Cate Giovanni, one of Andrea s seminary student is in Rexburg and having roommate problems When she goes to Seattle for a summer internship she meets them all.Another fun story in the trilogy. Ally Condie does well with writing multiple points of view so we see many different angles of the story The first time I experienced her doing that was in Crossed , the second book of the Matched trilogy, but it seems she has done that for most of her books I think it s a good literary device that helps move the storyline along without being overly heavy handed with details.I also really enjoyed getting to know 2 new characters Addie and Sam who are both siblings of previous characters we ve met in the First Day series It was fun to go back to Lakeview High and see how some things never really change about being in high school.I think my favourite part of the book was the little mystery, though It was subtle, but beautifully done, and kept me guessing until literally the last page I went right into this third book after finishing First Day This was a shorter book that brought in several characters from the earlier books but also introduced a few new ones The thing I like best about this series is how real the characters feel and how realistic their situations and decisions seem I think the author really nails the emotions that a lot of teens and young adults face From feeling like you don t fit in, to dealing with friends roommates who make bad choices, to struggling with whether or not to serve a mission It was definitely an LDS book but didn t feel preachy at least the least preachy of the three books I loved the humor in it as well found myself laughing out loud many times I will definitely encourage my kids to read these books when they re a bit older. Addie Sherman Isn T Popular, She S Not Exuberant, And She S Not Known As The Class Clown She S Just Addie, A High School Junior Who Is Convinced That She Has Nothing In Common With The Rest Of Her Outgoing Family, Including Her Brother Dave When Dave S Wife, Avery, Needs Help During A Difficult Pregnancy, Dave Calls On Addie Addie Has To Hide Her Resentment Over Having To Help Her Sister In Law When There Are Plenty Of Things Going On In Her Own Life That Need Her AttentionSam Choi Is One Of Addie S Best Friends, And He Has A Few Secrets Of His Own He Doesn T Want To Go On A Mission, And He S Not Sure How To Break The News To His ParentsCate Giovanni Is A Freshman In College, And Enjoying The Chance To Reinvent Herself And Leave Her High School Years Behind As She Makes New Friends And Encounters New People, She Also Can T Help But Think About Someone She Left BehindReunion, The Final Book In The Yearbook Trilogy, Is A Novel About The Journeys Home That Become Possible After You Ve Discovered About Yourself This series just went downhill after the first book Check out my other reviews for the previous two Reunion was filled with unrealistic dialogue, too much lovey dovey romance drama, and couples who were perfectly in love which I think gives a bad impression of what marriage and relationships are really like and about It s one of those books that gives the idea that once you ve found the right person for you, everything is just peachy and nothing can go wrong.I also didn t love the characters for this book I m not sure what it was, but something about the authors writing just became boring to me The characters weren t has exciting or in depth or as varied as they were in the first novel.
