Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.

From The Wreckage (From The Wreckage #1) Review

Title: From The Wreckage

Author: Michele G. Miller

Genre: Contemporary

Age Group: Young Adult

My Rating: 6 / 5



Goodreads Summary:

“In a matter of minutes on a Friday night, I lost my school, my identity, the security of my first love, the personality of my sweet fearless brother, my best friend, my town, everything as I knew it. Everything changed.”

"Minutes - that’s all it takes to change your entire life. How do you deal with that?”

For high school senior Jules Blacklin surviving the storm is only the beginning. Faced with the new reality of her life, she must find a way to rise From The Wreckage and answer the question - how do you get back to normal, when everything that was normal is gone?



My Review:

I'll be honest and say that when I read the summary, I was hesitant to pick this book up because I had never really read this type of story before and didn't know what to expect.  I wasn't sure if this was my type of book or not, or if I was even going to like it.  Even after I brought this book, I waited a long while before I actually decided to read it.  But the minute I started reading this book, I wanted to hit myself in the head for waiting so long to pick it up!
