What I Thought: Personal Effects by E.M. Kokie

I'll will spare you another blurb and get right to the point. I read this book in a day, hardly put it down, and was completely spent and satisfied when I came out the other side. The last YA I've read that had a similar effect on me was Green's Fault in Our Stars. E.M. Kokie has crafted a pace perfect emotional roller coaster with complex characters. I loved this book and hope she is working on something else. I recommend this Personal Effects to anyone who enjoys contemporary YAs.


  1. Haven't read this one, but I agree with you about FAULT IN OUR STARs. Great book!

    1. Kirsten, it is a new, debut author. But this book is beautifully written and should not be missed. Honestly, an excellent read.

  2. I just received Fault In Our Stars in the mail from my book swap site! I am trying to get new YA books on my classroom shelf. Looks like I'll have to add this one...and read it first. I like YA that reads like it isn't YA, if that makes any sense.
