Logan by Jay McLean ~ Amy’s Review

WHY I READ IT

Jay and her books will always be special to me because her More series helped usher me back into reading as an adult.  She opened up a whole new world to me and with each book she releases that world gets bigger and bigger.

WHAT I RATED IT

WHAT IT’S ABOUT

As a kid, Logan Preston was a brat.
Through his teens, he became the bad boy.
Now, at nineteen, no one knows what the hell to expect.

High school dropout, Logan Preston is a
good-for-nothing stoner.
A black sheep.
A disappointment.
The worst Preston Punk of the lot.
At least that’s how everyone in his small town
makes him feel.
But Logan Preston has secrets.
Secrets so dark and so deep below the surface that the only way he can fight them is to stay high, high, high.
He wears cockiness as a mask.
Arrogance as his armor.
Until one girl, one night, asks one life-changing question:
What’s beneath the bravado, Logan Preston?

AMY’S REVIEW

The ability to form words let alone put them into sentences after reading Logan is a feat.  This book takes you through the emotional ringer.  It takes you so high your toes barely touch the ground before burying you under the weight of it’s serious and emotional storyline.  

I loved every second of this book.  It made me laugh and cry.  I felt joy and pain, love and loss, friendship and hope.  There were moments when I was sick with fear of where the storyline was going to take us and if recovery was even possible for the characters involved.  Emotionally I was all over the place the entire book, and that right there, to me is a sign of excellent writing.  I had no real idea of what would happen next, how the characters would react, and I was sure that Little Logan would end up with two books like Big Logan.  But like she always does Jay wrapped everything up perfectly.

As much as I love Logan, Cam and Lucy will always be my greatest loves.  We get so much more of them in this book and I will hold those parts of this book with me forever.  We got our loud mouthed, quick on the draw Lucy but, we also got a softer, yet somehow fiercer side.  The side she reserves just for her brothers.  It was beautiful and fit seamlessly into Logan’s story.

Read this book.
