    9. Won in the First Reads giveaway.Sometimes I felt some of the writing was awkward, but it was an addictive read The characterization was really good, especially for Sabrina and Gabby Sometimes when you have a bunch of characters they either seem interchangeable or are too archetype ish, but they all were distinctive and realistic The parents all seemed one dimensional, but I m guessing they will be developed in sequels if this is a series The ghost scenes and Gabby s first technically second vis [...]

    10. Easy reading kids with powers thriller Disclaimer reviewing eARC via NetGalley Pretty standard thriller fare if you love kids with ESP, telekinesis etc murder mysteries, shadowy government organizations conspiracies etc this may be right up your alley In my opinion, it reads like an older MG title than YA, with of a distant narrative voice than currently in vogue However, part of the premise is troubled teens getting powers, so MC drug abuse and casual sex offscreen nonexplicit makes it suitab [...]

    11. Rating 3.5 Stars Your school files indicate that you ve been deemed lost causes by everyone around you People have given up trying to help Your teachers, your fellow students, even your parents I wasn t sure about this one at first, because the characters were sort of unlikable at the beginning of the story, but they grew on me and so did this book The FBI dosing a group of throw aways with a serum, which gives them psychic powers is a rather compelling concept After a little bit of a slow start [...]

    12. I would like to thank the authors as I won this book in a giveaway.Actual rating is 3.5 stars.This book is about a murder that happens in a rural town The FBI are investigating but are getting nowhere They end up giving a serum to a handful of outcast children who develop powers Basically, this book is about a team of special beings and imagine that being a television show on the CW network with all the teen drama.This book entertained me throughout It is a YA novel and it does read like one The [...]

    13. I ve hidden most things that are super spoiler y, but may still divulge details better left unsaid to the reader, so proceed with caution.Ready OK.The jist is that a top secret drug has been synthesized by the FBI that, when ingested, bestows remarkable mental powers The catch is that it has to be ingested by teens, because it requires a growing brain to properly take hold As the story opens, one of the women who formulated it was killed and her stash of the serum was stolen, so the FBI decides [...]

    14. This book was provided to me through NetGalley for an honest review.Unfortunately, this book was a DNF at Chapter 11 my kindle says 23% I seriously wanted to like this book, from the description it sounded like it could ve been really great It just didn t work for me This book is about a group of high school students with disorders being recruited by the FBI to help solve a murder That sounds cool as hell They have superpowers Um, okay The superpowers are given to them by a serum that magically [...]

    15. AHHHHHHHHHHHH I absolutely loved this book The Lost Causes follows a group of misfits who are thrown together to help the FBI solve a murder Sabrina, Z, Gabby, Justin and Andrew also seem to be literal lost causes With their numerous mental health issues, drug addictions, and family problems, it seems like everyone has given up on them So when they all meet one day in a surprise group therapy, none of them could have guessed they would walk out of the room with special psychic abilities, or that [...]

    16. When I first read the blurb for The Lost Causes, I was determined to get my hands on it Stories of otherness draw me in like a bear to honey And the cover is really atmospheric, dark and gloomy and oh so promising But despite really liking it truly, I did , it also fell a little flat for me, probably because my expectations were set too high by me, myself and I.The story was good, but formulaic Five troubled teenagers who have been written off by the world are forcibly injected with a serum that [...]

    17. What an interesting concept for a story I wanted to give starts because this had an X Files feel but I had an issue with one character and some parts were not believable Other than that, it is a quick read.

    18. I have never read a story like this before I found this story unique and even though it started off a little slow I did actually enjoy this book.

    19. This is my very first netgalley read, and they ll probably never let me read another one I m so sad to say I didn t enjoy this book at all It took me forever to finish And I almost didn t I really wanted to like it and I feel terrible giving it a bad review, but I must be honest It was ridiculous Nothing was believable in even the tiniest way, I found myself rolling my eyes over and over again For so many reasons Stupid bad guys that did stupid things and still got away with them even though the [...]

    20. The Lost Causes has so many of my favorite tropes wrapped up in one book I m such a sucker for ensemble casts, like three or main characters and I m in I love teen powers as long as it s not This one kid is the chosen one And I love friendship stories, especially unlikely friendships This book doesn t disappoint.The Powers Are so fun This to me has a Heroes vibe before the show became unbearable , or even accurately, Misfits also before it became unbearable I LOVED Misfits, and this is like a [...]

    21. Thank you to NetGalley and Kids Can Press for letting me review an e arc Even though I received this book for free to review, all thoughts, opinions, and reviews are honest and my own.This was great I was hooked from the first page I loved the concept of it I love anything with powers, friendships, murders, and crime solving This book was just fun for me.It was kind of a mash up of Criminal Minds, with a pinch of X Men, and the fun of Scooby Doo It just really worked for me all around.I enjoyed [...]

    22. The Lost Causes was not the book that I was expecting, it was so much better than you can ever imagine The way that this book draws you into these five young kids who are deemed lost causes by their families and teachers was perfect for what this book was saying You can t help but to feel their pain for what they had to go through to only to be taken for a ride after they drink a special potion that makes them have special powers to help with a murder case.As you get and into this book, you ca [...]

    23. Loved it Well written and I feel that there should be a sequel to this novel Reminded me of Harry Potter, the X men and the Breakfast Club all rolled into one Touched on many issues that teenagers deal with during those formative High School years Will pass this book onto the public library as I usually do after reading my books.

    24. I received this book as a giveaway and to be honest, I was kind of skeptical of it, but man was I wrong I absolutely loved this book it all started with a murder of someone named lily I absolutely loved it and I am so glad I received this book I CANNOT WAIT for the second one to come out because it ends in a cliffhanger that you wouldn t believe this book is amazing and I recommend it to anyone who needs a good, faced paced book.

    25. Slowly, the book begins with introducing us to our main characters Sabrina has a crippling addiction to drugs making her lie about her life Everyone knows about the addition, but that doesn t stop her from using other people to get the drugs she needs Andrew, a kid who both does and doesn t have illnesses Since he was a little boy, he hasn t made it to school much since every other day he feels as if he can t breath or he is having a heart attack Gabby is an OCD girl who lives her life in the sh [...]

    26. This review was originally posted on my blog.Content warning view spoiler suicide, drug use, murder, abuse hide spoiler I have so many thoughts on this book I was a little hesitant going into it because I wasn t really sure how I felt about the idea of mental health being cured and people being given superpowers instead The blurb felt like it could ve been insensitive and even exploitative While this did seem to be the case in the beginning of the book, my problems were mostly resolved soon afte [...]

    27. Trigger warnings OCD, depression, suicide, ableism, kleptomania, anger disorder, hypochondria, substance abuse both in the review and in the book We didn t give you the serum just to allevate some of your issues There s something we re asking in return You were all chosen for a reason Where do I begin With the positive.This book had a pretty good start It s not too slow and not too fast paced, for my liking The main characters are introduced one by one Z, the rebel dressed in black, suffering fr [...]

    28. The Lost Causes is just like a fire breathing dragon, spitting twists and turns in completely unexpected moments that will keep you gripped to the page The story was SO intriguing, and just when I thought there was no way another plot twist could happen, BAM They just kept coming The mystery was so intricately woven every single detail we learned about somehow was involved in Lily Carpenter s murder I kept jumping in surprise because just when I thought a character was innocent, well, they did s [...]

    29. Maybe you can t relate completely to the personal pain the characters of The Lost Causes or maybe you can, but take a moment and ask yourself that if you felt like you had nothing to lose and woke up one morning with X Men style psychic powers because of a government experiment, feeling better than you did yesterday, would you be mad Happy Excited Pissed off Personally, this sounds like a dream come true This is literally what I wish would happen to me right now This is my origin story.The Lost [...]
