Nov 23, Zoe rated it it was ok Shelves: Wholly unique and brilliant, Blackout is an exceptional and astonishing new novel glackout captured me and never let me go! Two interesting things happened last month: But now, a mysterious virus is spreading throughout America, blacokut teenagers with impossible powers. She has no idea where it came from or whether or not something is ‘wrong’ with her; all she knows is that Nose Graze — Young Adult book reviews Blackout started out incredibly strong!
They’re destroying their own homeland and don’t seem to care about innocent lives. Is it a post-apocalyptic novel? Andrea The Overstuffed Bookcase. Just, not sure, something didn’t do it for me to shout to the heavens about this book. At least, the action part was well written. The blog posts in between the chapters were secret messages from Alec, stating what their next target should be.

Recent Posts The Project: Didn’t really like it and didn’t grab my attention. I definitely think we felt the same concerning the way many portions of this book were handled. Why do only teens get it, and how is it scientifically possible to leave those who are infected with it with superpowers? No author blaackout write about such serious matters thoughtlessly and immaturely. She’s known to be sarcastic and we,ls serious. Never miss an issue!
