335:Alyzon Whitestarr

I read this book a while back so a lot of the book alludes me.


“Are Alyzon’s new abilities a blessing . . . or a curse?

Alyzon Whitestarr doesn’t take after her musically talented father or her nocturnal, artistic mother. In fact, she’s the most normal member of a very eccentric family . . . until the day that an accident leaves her more unique than she ever could have dreamed.

Suddenly colors are more vibrant to Alyzon; her memory is flawless; but strangest of all is Alyzon’s sense of smell. Her best friend smells of a comforting sea breeze. She registers her father’s contentment as the sweet scent of caramelized sugar. But why does the cutest guy in school smell so rancid?

With Alyzon’s extrasensory perception comes intrigue and danger, as she becomes aware of the dark secrets and hidden ambitions that threaten her family. In the end, being different might be less of a blessing than a curse. . . . ”

The Good

  • Brought up many philosophical ideas
  • Family has many children. I liked books that have large families
  • Her powers are pretty unique
  • The romance was not so in my face that I wanted to scream

The Bad

The story felt long. I feel that book kept rehashing the same thing instead of dealing with problems. It could have been cut down.

The Meh

I was all excited about the main character until I realized she was the stereotypical average girl.

Conclusion: It was okay, mostly forgettable though. I’m already struggling to remember things in the book.
