Emancipated by M.G Reyes****

Emancipated is about a group of teens who leave home to live together, legally of course. As each one gets to know each other better, relationships begin to form. Paolo falls in love with Lucy, Candace and John-Micheal share with each other, and Grace and Maya talk about their personal lives. Things begin to fall apart, though, when John-Micheal is accused of murder. Already Lucy is under stress from school, and the impact of what could happen to John-Micheal begins to sink in. Maya on the other hand, is reporting to a mysterious source, telling no-one in their tight group. With all of the secrets, lies, and deceptions, will life hold together for these six teens?

I thought this book was relatively good. There were a few parts that really developed characters into who they were and what they were willing to do for the group. There were definitely parts that showed how easy it is to deceive presumed friends. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even if there were some questionable parts for younger readers. I would say it might be a top read.

So glad to be back on Searching for the Perfect Book. I took a very, very long leave of absence. I am sorry for the huge gap, and hope to continue this blog throughout the rest of my high school career. I will try and post a few times a week, but not once a day. Thanks for your forgiveness, Harrison
