ISBN: Be the first to review this product. I saw everything from a distance, like I was a character in a movie filled with ambiguous heroes and unexpected villains. The most gallant, self-sacrificing guy in school was a murderer.
The hottest, most popular stud had just propositioned the plainest, least popular virgin. The virgin became some sort of crazy slut when night fell. Fathers stole from daughters and attacked their sons.
Mothers were too damaged and preoccupied to hold their own children Chemistry, where I'd once found order in the universe, wreaked havoc on souls. And that's just the first half of the novel.
Beth Fantaskey's forthcoming Jekel Loves Hyde Harcourt, begins, with eery overtones of Stephanie Meyers' Twilight series, as Jill Jekel is magnetically drawn to the handsome and brooding Tristen Hyde, whom she first encountered at the brink of her father's grave, when he appears in her chemistry class. Beyond the almost comic coincidence of their names with the characters in Stevenson's classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, both feel some deeper connection drawing them together despite themselves.
As well as scenes of kissing and sexual nature. While there are no sex scenes, it is discussed at length a few times throughout the novel. The novel also contain a good amount of violence.
Great review! Wish I could fastforward to May. Fantastic review. I like how you pointed out about the character being average and staying that way. Good review! Gotta say this sounds like a super awesome read.
I just read Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde this year and I enjoyed it a lot. Definitely interesting to see an author take the classic tale and do something new and different with it. I might push it up to the top of my read list soon — thanks for the review!
