    1. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss I ve often thought about what Peter Pan would look like if he were a Polo playing Westing student brushing his teeth in one of our bathrooms, and I have to say, you re exactly like I pictured him, right down to both your chest hairs This was a very strange story, and I had real problems trying to work out what was actually going on The story jumped back and forth through time, w [...]

    2. A copy of this book was provided to me by HarperCollins Canada This was my face when I started this book I don t know how I didn t realize this was going to focus on a group of kids segregated from the outside world because of a new virus called PPV, Peter Pan Virus I m not going to elaborate on the virus because the synopsis covers what PPV is, which is a mystery how I missed that this book would be about a fictional virus.I thought this was going to be of a contemporary but I was wrong Not th [...]

    3. Eu pensei bastante antes de escrever minha avalia o aqui porque esse livro me deixou realmente confuso.O plot dele muito original, a escrita bem diferente de um jeito bom mas isso n o foi o bastante pra me fazer gostar de Away We Go A narrativa confusa O autor usa o recurso de viajar pela linha do tempo e contar a hist ria de uma maneira n o linear, mas pra mim isso n o funcionou de um jeito interessante N o aquela baguncinha que aos poucos vai fazendo sentido Na maior parte da leitura eu me sen [...]

    5. This bookis bookOh this reviewIt is going to be hard to write this one I know it is I finished reading this book at least a month ago And ever since then, I have been thinking about how I need to write this review and knowing when this review needs to go up on my blog.The problem though is, I don t really know how to explain this book and my thoughts about it The reason being is that my feelings on this one are pretty mixed.On one hand, there were parts of it that blew my mind, but there were eq [...]

    6. First I have to start out by saying I liked this book but I didn t like some parts to it I have read a lot of books this year but this one stands out in so many ways both good and bad The setting is in a Boarding School for kids What these kids are allowed to do and how they are allowed to act was a little strange for me when I was reading The one thing that stood out for me was one of the main characters had some issues and he dealt with them as being simple.In this story we meet best friends N [...]

    7. More reviews and no fluff on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress Away We Go is a meditative piece exploring belonging, society, love, friendship, and the pursuit of a meaningful life At the same time, there are some interesting statements almost satirical about the currently popular YA dystopian genre of which, they may or may not be a part Those looking for action,adventure, or a straightforward story will likely be left scratching their heads by the end But this infinitely quotable novel is smartl [...]

    8. I did not expect a dark contemporary, but that is what I got The synopsis makes you think it s going to be a love story between two guys who are supposed to die It s not This was something else Most of the book was exactly what I expected it to be, but it kind of wasn t The way it was written made me think of Benjamin Alire S enz who is my favourite author ever That poetic writing style that I love came back in this book by an entirely different author That was not what I expected I never expect [...]

    9. I have done this several times on my blog Books that just don t work for me I know my reading style pretty well, and I can tell whether I will like the book or not accurately about 80 90% of the time If I finish a book, then there are aspects of that book that I enjoyed I never talk about the author in a negative way, I only say what doesn t work for me Normally if I finish a book, I give it at least 3 stars, meaning that I liked it Stopped at 11% I wanted to read away we go because I like the s [...]

    10. Really interesting, smart, emotional book I also really liked the gay MC angle, which I didn t know about when I first started the book so it was a nice surprise.

    11. Originally posted at This Is Not Your Book Blog I received an ARC from HarperCollins in exchange for an honest review thank you.Okay So here we go I will try my best not to spoil anything at all Some spoilers, realizations, and questions will be posted at awayweread a blog I made for the book mehehehe.How do I even start describing this wonderful book It s just the first book I ve read since 2016 started yeah, I made a pretty good choice about it , but I can already say this is one of the best b [...]

    12. DNF page 135 Nope I can t focus on this for the life of me and just don t get it I can t figure out if the time is bouncing around or not and frankly it s making me feel kind of stupid I don t understand or like the characters, or really get the point of the book Maybe I stopped just short of where the action starts I don t know But I m not going to bother finishing this book if I don t care what happens The premise behind this one had me interested right off the bat But, sadly I couldn t get on [...]

    13. Book Talk Not only has most of the nation s teenagers been struck by a deadly, contagious disease and relegated to hospices, there is a meteor on a collision course with Earth Noah Falls must figure out what to do with the short time left to him whether he dies by disease or comet My Thoughts What a strange book The premise intrigued me from the start I am a glutton for dystopia , but it really failed to deliver There was too much movement in perspective for me to follow along I couldn t connect [...]

    14. 2.5 stars Maybe I m torn This book was exactly like Extraordinary Means And it was boring half the time I liked some of the characters and the writing was pretty good But for such a short book I found myself losing focus fast I also don t really like this new BOLD USE OF NON WRITING in books It worked with Illuminae, I get it It doesn t work with books like this I didn t care at all about the fliers or the game states or whatever that were in this book half the time they didn t even match whatev [...]

    15. Away We Go is many things It s a story about friendship, a story about love A story about holding on, a story about giving up Away We Go didn t make me cry But it made me believe in hope than ever And that s why it stuck to me.Full review on my book blog wp p4gfJt v3 Will be up on February 2

    16. Amount read around 15%This is just too weird for me Plus, I have no sense of who any of the characters are I do think it seems like an excellent book if you re into speculative fiction for its own sake I am always into fiction for characterization s sake.

    17. I do not know who I was before I read this book How it hasn t been hyped as a fucking YA masterpiece is beyond me How it hasn t been read by every person on my friends list who reads YA is beyond me This is everything and It s beautiful and I have been completely and utterly decimated in the face of it Dear Emil Ostrovski,Your words are beautiful I am better for reading them Never, ever, ever do anything but write exactly the way you write because it s than anything else could be.

    18. I don t really like this blurb It makes it look lighthearted and middle grade than YA It s a bit like advertising The Outsiders as an adventure novel that fits into the same genre as Cherub, which would be a disgrace I have strong views about those two novels The former I love, and the latter I have many moral problems with I once liked it Then I grew up How ever, Away We Go is smile of relief not CHERUB It is the outsiders This is where you go run to bookstore and buy it because I m comparing [...]

    19. I absolutely loved the premise of this novel, although I was pretty sure it was going to break my heart It was occasionally hard to follow the timeline jumps all over the place, although they do let you know when that happens and it took me a few chapters to get into it, but these are minor quibbles.I also love the way that the book also has memos and things interspersed among some chapters It made the world feel so much realistic I love whenever things like that happen, because it s such a fun [...]

    20. I didn t finish Away We Go I just couldn t do it I wanted to read it because it seemed similar to Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider Unfortunately, Away We Go was not well written or unique enough for me I decided life was too short to finish this book when it had completely lost me The characters weren t developed enough, and I really didn t care about the main character at all I was so disappointed.

    21. I don t think this book is for me While the premise is interesting, there s no clear driving force in this book Relationships between characters seem fake and fragile The book doesn t even explore the premise it sets up I understand what this book was going for and I m usually a fan of character pieces, but I just didn t enjoy it like I thought I would I received and read an uncorrected ARC of this book.

    22. For a in depth review watch youtube watch v dDQPwThis book just felt like a mess There was no character development and the plot was convoluted It was a struggle to finish this book and it was not worth the effort.

    23. Check out this and other reviews on my young adult book blog, Here s to Happy Endings I was originally drawn to this book due to the synopsis it sounded a lot like the kind of book I d absolutely love kind of a dystopian contemporary combo, with some realistic elements thrown in that kind of remind me of books like Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider So I was so thrilled when I got the chance to read it.Truthfully, this was a sad story I think it was supposed to be a story of hope, but to be [...]

    24. Originally Published On Books In Her HeadI probably should begin with just the fact that this is my first time in a couple years reading an e ARC and it most certainly took me a little while to readjust to the experience When I participate in blog tours I try and make myself as flexible as possible for both the organizer and the publisher That being said, I m just of a paper book person, but reading this e ARC was not bad AT ALL surprisingly.I first found out about Away We Go via the tour invit [...]

    25. enlightening, sad, brilliant this book got me questioning whether the things i believe in are really worth believing in.SPOILER ALERT what the heck i can t believe marty got shot and zach killed himself and alex didn t send him a message even once and juan is gone and soon alice will be too, and noah is looking up at the stars and lighting up fireworks and believing he s peter pan and all the world s a stage while his skin is peeling off and there s skittles on the ground and the world is not go [...]

    27. So, clearly, this was heavily influenced by John Green The author rated TFIOS, Looking for Alaska, and Will Grayson highly five, four, and four stars, respectively , and this book really felt like What if we took everything from LfA and made them dying, like in TFIOS, with a side of gay, like in WG Why it was like Looking for Alaska1 Like in LfA, the students are in a fancy boarding school They apparently go to at least some classes, but really, who cares They don t.2 Marty s obsession with writ [...]
