As a young girl, Gaby was told that she would grow up to be just like her mother and her siblings, who were all teen parents, and she wanted to prove them all wrong. However, when she was in her junior year of high school she got the idea to fake her own pregnancy and overcome stereotypes to understand how her mother, siblings, and other pregnant teens feel when they were pregnant. This was an amazing book to read, and Gaby Rodriguez is a great role model for young girls who feel pressured, especially by stereotypes. ~By Jordan
There is a girl named Farrah who writes down these numbers on the bottom of a tv show. Later on she thinks the numbers have to do with the bombing of JFK. This leads her on a life or death adventure.
I liked the plot of this book along with the descriptive use of details. It just made it very intriguing and I couldn’t put it down.

Cecil Castellucci’s newest novel, The Year of the Beasts, tells a coming-of-age story focusing on one average girl’s fateful summer. What separates this one from the crowd, however, is that every other chapter flashes forward to the start of the next school year in graphic novel form, when everybody has transformed into some sort of mythical beast. It goes from realistic drama to minotaurs and medusas to drama again in a truly unique and fascinating way. It’s a refreshing taste of the abnormal in an otherwise ordinary book that truly accentuates just how likable all of the characters really are. I strongly recommend this book to any fans of the bizarre.
