From the POV of the "third wheel"
I may be considered "too old" to read young adult novels but I prefer reading this genre because I want to be entertained when I read; like watching a television show but letting my own imagination create the scene and details from the basis the author has created for me.
Read the story now
This author builds the plot in an easy to follow manner. There is just enough detail to peak the imagination without having to re-read lines due to the excessive metaphors or adjectives thrown about for the author's sake rather than the reader's enjoyment.
You feel like the third wheel character following the characters' every move,listening to their conversations and getting drawn into the story.
Onward! To the next chapter!
