Women 24 reviews Dark Poppy’s Demise

I just spotted this lovely review of Dark Poppy’s Demise by Tammy February on Women 24.

Coming from a home with mostly absent parental figures, she carries all the angst of a teen forced to look after her brother and herself. So of course, she does what any vulnerable young teen desperate for attention does; she allows herself to be taken in by pretty green eyes and striking good looks.

The trouble begins almost immediately – and it’s here where we, as the reader, quickly become frustrated with Jenna.

On the one hand, you can’t help but be annoyed with the temperamental diva who quickly becomes so wrapped up in her new relationship that she completely neglects her friends; but on the other hand, you can’t help but be concerned and frustrated that she’s the only one who is blind to the very obvious warning signs (Robert simply has smarmy written all over him).

This is where the brilliance in this novel lies.

Regardless of your feelings toward the main character, you won’t be able to put the book down because you simply have to watch how it all unfolds. It’s like trying to tear your eyes away from the scene of a fresh car accident: no matter how hard you try, your eyes will always revert back to the scene.

Read the rest of the review here.

Tammy also has a fantastic YA book blog that you can check out here.

Thanks Tammy!
