    One thought on “Under Threat”

    1. I really would ve liked this to be a full length novel it s like a novella , but I absolutely liked what it was There are very few YAs where a couple is together from before the book to the end honestly, Bleeding Earth was the only other one I could recall , and a lesbian couple In which both halves are already out Basically a YA unicorn Although don t be fooled by the cover I wouldn t call this a capital R Romance it s really of a contemporary where the romance has effects on the story but is [...]

    2. I was immediately intrigued by the premise of this one a teenage girl s parents are threatened because they are abortion providers She reaches out to her girlfriend, but her girlfriend doesn t necessarily see eye to eye her with her on a woman s right to choose I really appreciated reading a lesbian YA that begins after the main character has come out That is incidental to the plot This is part of the Orca Soundings series, which are hi lo high interest, low reading level books, so it s very sho [...]

    3. This is a super short argument for reproductive rights, framed in an effective LGBT novella short story This tiny little book packed a punch and I would have loved to see it as a full length novel and spent time with the characters.I literally read this whole thing in about an hour It s about a girl called Franny who loves horses, her parents, and her girlfriend Leah But her parents are abortion providers and she s also used to receiving threatening phone calls and mysterious packages that have [...]

    4. It s been a few days since I actually read this book, but I m still having trouble pinpointing what this book is actually about There are a few spoilers, so beware view spoiler I m actually a little bummed out that the synopsis on lets down the book so much I mean, the books description on is literally one sentence Franny s life would be perfect if it weren t for the death threats While the book is pretty much framed around that one sentence, and the sentence is pretty much the book in it s enti [...]

    5. Loved the conflicts and the characters, but it felt underdeveloped to me This is probably due to the fact that it is designed to be a short read for kids who are below grade level in reading.I will say that this is a very strong title from the Orca Soundings series I was riveted, but I also read the whole thing in roughly 30 minutes.

    6. I read this book for my Young Adult Materials class.Until my MLIS program I had never even heard of HiLo books and the controversy surrounding their naming but it is amazing the audience that can be reached by books like these As a fast reader I was able to read this book in a very short amount of time due the simplicity of the language and the shortness of the book Despite the fact that it was written decently simply the story was very interesting and I was hooked all the way through I really l [...]

    7. This book fell flat for me I was expecting a thriller, and this read like an angsty contemporary with one twist.

    8. I read these Orca Soundings books so that I can recommend them to my students who need high interest, low level books this one is a grade 4.2 level I didn t mind the story To appeal to a wide range of ages, it leads up to all the exciting parts, but never gets in to any details they start to kiss, then next scene, etc , but this is true for all Orca Soundings, although I have heard displeasure at this tactic from older students.My issue with this was the privileged life of the characters Owning [...]

    9. This book would be a wonderful vehicle to start discussion with teenagers about religious extremism and domestic i.e christian terrorism but as a novel unto itself, seems rather heavy handed.Our narrator, Franny, is traumatized by repeated threats to her doctor parents both abortion providrs and view spoiler ends up lashing out at her girlfriend s brother for his ignorant views and possibly alienating her beloved forever But they make up and its fine hide spoiler I think this book could have bee [...]

    10. So, a few weeks ago, i was going through the giveaways on here and I saw Under Threat I read the description and thought it sounded prettying neat So I entered and ended up winningLet me just day, this book far exceeded my expectations I thought it was going to be good, but this book was absolutely amazing It was such a quick read I finished in about an hour The relationship between Franny and Leah was very realistic Even though the book was only just over 100 pages, I was completely absorbed in [...]

    11. More of a novella than a novel, and definitely written for a younger age group I guess if I was 12 or so this wouldn t have been an awful read, but at 28 years old this did absolutely nothing for me Simple story, flat characters, rushed resolution, etc.

    12. This book is SUCH an important read so well written, it was a pleasure to follow the character through her continuous journey through self discovery of herself and the world around her LOVE THIS This seasoned writer continues to produce fabulous work

    13. If you re looking for a book that tackles the issue of abortion rights head on, that is it This is a very well written and unparalleled look at a highly charged topic.
