Review: Havoc

Havoc by Jane Higgins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I would have given another star if I’d been able to remember the first one – which I really liked – more clearly. This one took me a wee bit to get into because I couldn’t remember the characters well enough, I see that some people on Goodreads think it is ok to read as a standalone, but I really felt that you needed the background of the previous novel, and once that all came flooding back to me I was in. The characters are realistic, witty and the dialogue sparkling between them. Nicely conflicting moral issues and I think Jane Higgins is one of the very best young adult writers in this country. I’m interested to see what she writes next. Look, I just upped the stars!
