Review: CHARM & STRANGE


CHARM & STRANGE
by Stephanie Kuehn


When you’ve been kept caged in the dark, it’s impossible to see the forest for the trees. It’s impossible to see anything, really. Not without bars . . . 
Andrew Winston Winters is at war with himself. 
He’s part Win, the lonely teenager exiled to a remote Vermont boarding school in the wake of a family tragedy. The guy who shuts all his classmates out, no matter the cost.
He’s part Drew, the angry young boy with violent impulses that control him. The boy who spent a fateful, long-ago summer with his brother and teenage cousins, only to endure a secret so monstrous it led three children to do the unthinkable. 
Over the course of one night, while stuck at a party deep in the New England woods, Andrew battles both the pain of his past and the isolation of his present. 
Before the sun rises, he’ll either surrender his sanity to the wild darkness inside his mind or make peace with the most elemental of truths—that choosing to live can mean so much more than not dying.

Charm and Strange is a book that doesn't really fit into any categories. It's unique, in a category all by itself. But just like many other great books, it manages to leave a large impact on you once you've closed its back cover. Charm & Strange is a novel about identity, about self-truth, about finding who you are in a sea of other people. I ate it up like cake. Make sure to pick this one up, because you'll be in for quite a thrill!
