drey's thoughts:
This is the second YA novel I've read this year that's set in Paris. I love Paris! Ok, enough about me. On to the book.

Amy Plum's Die for Me is a romantic story about a girl who's lost her parents, and the boy she meets and falls in love with. Only thing is, he's not quite exactly a boy... What is he, you ask? Well, that's part of the fun of reading the book, so I'm not going to spill. Instead, I'm going to tell you that I really like Kate. So she's not the strongest girl out there, but what do you expect from someone who's lost her parents and so suddenly at that? She's still smart and kinda sassy, and she's definitely not whiny or angsty.

She's slowly coming out of her self-imposed shell when she sees Vincent, and wonders about him--his mysterious appearances, his friends, his everything... Then she actually meets him. And finds that sometimes a boy is so worth the trouble--especially this one, who comes with buckets of it.

The storyline runs smoothly, the plot has no hiccups, and you'll enjoy Amy Plum's take on  good-vs-bad. The characters are well-drawn, the conflicts explained... And the love story is so sweet--even with the slightly cheesy parts--that it'll take you back to when you were a teenager dreaming of romance and boys. Pick this up if you like romantic YA urban fantasy.

drey's rating: Excellent!
