Run Book Review

Run - Kody Keplinger

Kody Keplinger is becoming one of my favorite, if not my favorite, contemporary YA writers. I really enjoyed Run. Even though it is probably my least favorite of hers. She writes such great characters its hard not to fall in love.

 

This is the story of two girls, Bo Dickinson and Agnes Atwood. They couldn't be more different, Bo is known as the school slut and has the family that nobody likes, Agnes is blind and is the sweet girl that never gets into trouble. But then the two meet and against all odds slowly become friends. There will always be something to run from.

 

The characters are fun and relatable. The story isn't the best, especially compared to The Duff and Lying Out Loud. But again, this is one people will like because they want to read about girls being friends. About girls defying the norm of the town.
