Monument 14 Review!!!! Spoilers!!!!

Monument 14 Your mother hollers that you’re going to miss the bus. She can see it coming down the street. You don’t stop and hug her and tell her you love her. You don’t thank her for being a good, kind, patient mother. Of course not—you launch yourself down the stairs and make a run for the corner.
Only, if it’s the last time you’ll ever see your mother, you sort of start to wish you’d stopped and did those things. Maybe even missed the bus.
But the bus was barreling down our street, so I ran.
Fourteen kids. One superstore. A million things that go wrong.
In Emmy Laybourne’s action-packed debut novel, six high school kids (some popular, some not), two eighth graders (one a tech genius), and six little kids trapped together in a chain superstore build a refuge for themselves inside. While outside, a series of escalating disasters, beginning with a monster hailstorm and ending with a chemical weapons spill, seems to be tearing the world—as they know it—apart.
Guys, I don't like children in trouble. But this book was really good! I loved the plot and it was something that I certainly hadn't read before. The characters were very likable except for the couple of exceptions. The kids had to deal with something very scary that was well thought out. The blood types were very scary, but I enjoyed the twist. The writing style really got to me. I loved it. I can't wait to read the sequel.

Peace, Love and Fangirl,
