    One thought on “Modern Monsters”

    1. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Entangled Publishing, LLC and NetGalley I m detective Sherrigan and this is Detective Carter, Waverly Police Department, the man says We came to ask you about a party you were seen at Friday night This was an interesting mystery story about a boy accused of rape.Vic was quite a shy boy, and he seemed to always have other people s best interests at heart It seemed quiet unfathomable that he could have possi [...]

    2. The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off Gloria Steinem, an American feminist, journalist, and social and political activist Kelley York, pens her new young adult contemporary novel, Modern Monsters that revolves around a dangerous crime destroying the life of an innocent teenager, and also threatens to snatch away his quiet yet successful future, thus it forces him to embark upon on a road where he can clear his name, but little did he knew that this road to truth can be a re [...]

    3. 3.5 The author did choose a pretty serious topic to deal with and is is definitely one of a kind I think it was pretty well done by there are definitely some flaws I am really glad it was short because if it was any longer, it would have become boring One complaint though is that nothing really happened in the book At the beginning Vic is accused of rape and then he is badly treated and gossiped about A girl stands up and tries to help him find out who really did it and a romance starts to brew [...]

    4. Modern Monsters was a very pleasant surprise for me, a fairly short and exciting novel that can be read in one sitting It s very tightly written and compulsively readable and it gives us a convincing male voice, something we don t get nearly often enough in YA fiction Vic is not your average hero, YA or otherwise He is a loner, a shy, antisocial boy with a stutter He only has one friend, the very popular Brett, whose future is vastly different from Vic s Vic is used to being dragged around by hi [...]

    5. Rating 3.5 I was excepting from this book, to be honest I did enjoy the plot and characters except for a few certain ones , but it was overall really predictable in my opinion.

    6. Digital copy provided by Entangled in exchange for an honest review.Actual rating 2.5 starsFirst and foremost, Modern Monsters deals with a very sensitive and sometimes harmful topic, so please don t read this if rape or emotional trauma is a trigger for you While the conversation about rape is being held and explored in this novel, it is not from a survivor s point of view If that is something you re comfortable with, you might want to try this title.With that being said, on to the review The m [...]

    7. If I had to use one word to describe Modern Monsters it would be gut wrenching it broke my heart over and over What happens when you do the right thing and it backfires That is the basis for Modern Monsters.Our main character Vic is shy, a bit weird, reclusive, respectable young man from the wrong side of town his best friend is Mr Popular, star athlete this relationship works for Vic He can be his invisible self, but still spend time with his childhood friend without fitting in Vic does get tal [...]

    8. I received this ARC from Entangled Teen through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This book faces a really tough, sensitive subject I really, really loved Vic s character He really grew so much through the course of the story, while facing incredibly hard to deal with issues You really feel so bad for him, and whats worse, is knowing that things like this can happen in real life, and have happened What I also loved about this book was the fierce loyalty that the friends had for one anot [...]

    9. 3.5 I liked the book, and I loved the characters, but I thought it was a bit predictable For the most part, the plot was pretty good, but again, kinda predictable I think what bothered me the most was that, despite Vic wanting to find out who the real crook rapist was, he and Autumn spent time just hanging out and getting closer than doing detective work That wasn t necessarily bad, seeing as how she s integral to to the story and to the growth of Vic s character, but I thought it lessened the [...]

    10. Modern Monsters is the story of Callie, a high school senior who was raped one night while at a lake house party for both college and high school kids What makes this story so utterly different and unique compared to any other with this subject matter is that it s not told from Callie s POV as the victim This story is told from Vic s POV a shy, introverted teenage boy who is wrongly accused of raping Callie It was this change in POV that made me want to read Modern Monsters, I had a feeling that [...]

    11. I received a copy from Netgalley, In exchange for an honest review Actual rating 3.5I felt sorry for both Callie and Vic in this What happened to Callie was awful, but what Vic had to go through wasn t very nice either I had a feeling that I knew who the rapist was early on, so it wasn t really a surprise when it was revealed It didn t make the story any less enjoyable though.Overall, Predictable, but a decent read.

    12. Thank you Netgalley for providing me a free review copy in exchange for an honest reviewI have been a fan of Kelley York ever since I read and loved Hushed After that book, I was instantly in love Her writing was so dark and her characters so twisted, I couldn t help myself And when I heard she was coming back on the scene with another book, this one about rape, you bet your ass I wanted it.York is a born storyteller Everything I ve read of hers is dripping in gorgeous prose and dark twists, so [...]

    13. One of the first things that struck me about Modern Montsers was the voice, that of a teenage male and something that there is not enough of in YA literature And that voice was convincing and empathetic.Vic is not the stereotypical YA hero and I LOVED that His best friend is one of the popular guys, but he is not He has a stutter and, largely because of that, he is rather socially awkward He isn t portrayed as the shy, socially awkward guy who is secretly a brilliant guy either Instead, he bare [...]

    14. Review also on AwesomeBookNuts I was really wary about this book It s about rape The book starts out at a party and shortly after that we learn that a girl was raped So I was expecting some graphic details and disturbing imagery and lots of drinking and drugs and cursing But there wasn t Kelley York handled this subject so incredibly well We hear this story from the perspective of the boy who is accused of raping the girl, but he s innocent So we see what happens to him as a result of being wron [...]

    15. It has taken me some time to process Modern Monsters and decide how best to review it, as I have very conflicting feelings on the book I wish there were a 3 1 2 star option, but had to settle on 3 since it is not a full 4, in my opinion.Kelley York needs to be commended on tackling such difficult subject matter and managing to do so from a seldom examined side Without lessening the traumatic impact of the rape on the victim, she examines the side of the person accused of the rape How does it fee [...]

    16. Thanks to Entangled Publishing for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review.Did I like this book There were quite a few aspects of this book that make it unique, things that I absolutely loved For example, writing the book from a suspect s point of view Genius Having that suspect be a shy, mouse of a guy with hardly anybody to protect him or take his side Brilliant York did a tremendous job of getting me right inside Vic s head, making me sympathize with him, and further, fully investi [...]

    17. Words cannot describe how much I loved this book Like I wanna go on and on and on about how much I love it, but where the hell do I begin First off, I love Vic s character I absolutely love him I think he s extremely well written, quirky, and very realistic If I made a list of Favorite Book Characters of All Time, he would definitely be on it I also loved Callie s character, and how strong she was after all that had happened to her She kind of reminded me of Callie from The Fosters inspiration f [...]

    18. I was given Modern Monsters from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Trigger Warning Rape and Suicide.I want to start off by saying this book will definitely stick with me for a while The character development is great From Vic to Brett I just thoroughly enjoyed it It is well written, at times it becomes pretty predictable and I figured it out before the end though I was hoping I was wrong It s nice and refreshing to get a male protagonist in YA and I appreciated the fact that he had a sl [...]

    19. SPOILERS 3.5 Stars I confess thatI was expecting of this book.Having read the majority of Kelley York s books I was expecting something dark and that would made me cry like a baby That didn t happened I enjoyed the book butit was totally predictable.I guessed the whole story right on the 2nd chapter or so One think that this book made really feel was really mad.I m just so mad and disgusted I have no words to describe how muchI hate and despise Brett That son of a bitch and fucking coward What [...]

    20. See of my reviews on The YA Kitten I got a copy from YA Books Central for review.Diversity 2 It s a Start Racial Ethnic 1 minor character named Amjad from the Middle East QUILTBAG 0Disability 1 Vic has an involuntary stutter Intersectionality 2 Vic comes from a struggling single parent family Writing a novel from the point of view of a boy accused of rape is risky business That hardly needs saying, but it is because the victim is who we should care about in a rape case, not the alleged rapist [...]

    23. Review originally posted on my blog Mischievous ReadsModern Monsters isn t the usual type of novel I m accustomed to It s controversial, and somewhat sickening, but hey, it happens every day in real life Thus, I was intrigued by the topic promoted by the synopsis and I would have to say, this book did leave me in a bit of a shock.Vic Howard is the quiet guy at his high school, and also has a terrible speech problem The only thing that prevents him from being bullied is because his best friend, B [...]

    24. My Thoughts Modern Monsters was a thought provoking read There are certain circumstances that are revealed during the story that had me questioning how I would feel and what I would do if I was placed in a similar situation I cannot reveal these situations, because I do not want to spoil the story for anyone, but I must mention that I enjoy a book that makes me contemplate, question, and reflect.Modern Monsters is told soley from Vic Howard, a senior in high school s, point of view Vic attended [...]
