    I ve spent most of the night trying to sort out how I feel about this book, and I think the gist of what I ve come to is disappointed I was really psyched for The Girl Who Would Be King I m a fan of the author s podcast she seems like a sensible, gender aware woman, and I was super excited by the idea of a female positive YA superhero book that could avoid all of the traps that make this genre so frustrating.Also, that is an amazing cover I mean goddamn, Stephanie Hans should do every cove I ve spent most of the night trying to sort out how I feel about this book, and I think the gist of what I ve come to is disappointed I was really psyched for The Girl Who Would Be King I m a fan of the author s podcast she seems like a sensible, gender aware woman, and I was super excited by the idea of a female positive YA superhero book that could avoid all of the traps that make this genre so frustrating.Also, that is an amazing cover I mean goddamn, Stephanie Hans should do every cover This is the same woman who did Journey Into Mystery covers too, omg.Ahem ANYWAY The point is, my expectations were unusually high for this book, which is why, even though I wouldn t call it awful , The Girl Who Would Be King was such a let down I was expecting something amazing, and while there is a good story in...

    The Girl Who Would Be King by Kelly Thompson 2.99 E This book is better than Hunger Games A hell of a lot better More exciting,innovative,fascinating And yet Traditional Publishers won t touch it Why Because it doesn t fit their formula It has no genre, no shelf at BN, no section in the library It doesn t fit neatly in a marketing plan.They can t handle it.But you can.The Girl Who Would Be King is not a Young Adult title It s not an action adventure, or a thriller or The Girl Who Would Be King by Kelly Thompson 2.99 E This book is better than Hunger Games A hell of a lot better More exciting,innovat...

    Last night, as I neared the end of the book, my girlfriend asked me what I was reading I told her and said I m not sure I like it That was around 90% through Now I ve finished and I m still not sure I like it I think it was an entertaining story, but the flaws might override that.I didn t realize it was self published at first but it explains a bit I think there s an ellipses in every other sentence, which gets really obnoxious The suspension of disbelief went too far for me Very minor Last night, as I neared the end of the book, my girlfriend asked me what I was reading I told her and said I m not sure I like it That was around 90% through Now I ve finished and I m still not sure I like it I think it was an entertaining story, but the flaws might override that.I didn t realize it was self publis...

    I really enjoyed this book It is told in first person by two different narrators The switch between the two is noted by a small symbol, but once you re a little ways into the book you don t really need those markers The voices are pretty different from each other The story is about two girls, one raised by a disinterested mother, the other raised in an orphanage from the age of 6 They both discover they have something that makes themthan other people They can run faster, they re stro I really enjoyed this book It is told in first person by two different narrators The switch between the two is noted by a small symbol, but once you re a little ways into the book you don t really need those markers The voices are pretty different from each other The story is about two girls, one raised by a disinterested mother, the other raised in an orphanage from the age of 6 They both discover they have something that makes themthan other people They can run faster, they re stronger, they heal from grievous injuries One is drawn to help other people The other is driven to wipe out any competition The girls are like two sides of a coin They are unaware of each other and both are searching for answers This book was hard to put down I read the Kindle file from the kickstarter and there were a few editing or formatting issues But there were only a couple that I noted and they didn t really detract from the story I would highly recommend this book and I hop...
