Everything Is Changed by Nova Weetman Book ReviewTitle: Everything Is Changed

Author: Nova Weetman

Publisher: UQP

About the book: Alex and Jake, both teenagers, do something terrible one night and have to try to conceal it. This book is told in reverse, starting at the end, and leading up towards the climax, which is where the reader finds out exactly what the boys did to lead them to where they are at the start of the book. It’s the mystery of this that keeps you reading.

What I thought: I thought this book was very interesting, as it’s told in reverse, and I like how the language in the book helped the tension. I found the characters relatable because of the way they were described and the book is all told in first person so their voices felt very real, and I liked that. The two boys narrate part of the story, but there are other voices adding to the story as well.

I recommend this book for ages 12+ because it contains mature themes, some coarse language and high tension, and I think that both boys and girls would like it.

Buy Everything Is Changed.

Written by Book Boy

I'm a 15-year-old Aussie boy who loves to read. My favourite books include 'Jasper Jones', 'To Kill A Mockingbird' and 'The Lord Of The Rings'. My website contains reviews of books from junior fiction to YA novels and, now, adult reads as well. I only review books I like. My brother writes younger reviews for Book Boy as Book Boy Jr. My book reviews have appeared in The Sunday Telegraph, and on sites such as Children's Books Daily, Creative Kids Tales and Inside A Dog. I am a former member of the #LoveOzYA committee (2018).
