Review: Inescapable by Amy Bartol
My name is Evie Claremont and this was to be the making of me–my freshman year of college. I’d been hoping that once I’d arrived on Crestwood’s campus, the nightmare that I’ve been having would go away. It hasn’t.
I may be an inexperienced seventeen-year-old, but I’m grounded…sane. I look for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he’s near, I feel an attraction to him–a magnetic kind of force pulling me towards him. I know what you’re thinking…that sounds fairly awesome. Yeah, it would be…if he liked me, but Reed acts as if I’m the worst thing that has ever happened to Crestwood…or him. But get this, for some reason every time I turn around he’s there, barging into my life.
What is the secret that he’s keeping from me? I’m hoping that it’s anything but what I suspect: that he’s not exactly normal…and neither am I. So, maybe Crestwood won’t be the making of me, but it could be the breaking of me. I’ve been left to wonder if the dark future my dream is foretelling is…inescapable.

Review by Rachel: Rating- 2
I can't help rating this book low. It really was an interesting story, but all the mechanics that go into making the story were awful. I'm from the south and Russel talked like he was from the south in a different time period. Plus he kept saying y'all when referring only to Evie. That is not the correct form of y'all!
The slang in the book made my head hurt. Things like "Sure you told me, but it's phat to hear it again" and "It's chill of you to help" made me want to gauge my eyes out. I was half way through this book and kept saying, "Nope, this is a big fat 1 star."

Thankfully, the climax made up for a portion of the book, especially when Russel was out of the picture for a little bit. I was able to enjoy the book enough that I want to find out what happens in book 2. The climax was interesting. I loved learning more about the paranormal side. I can't wait to read book 2 and hopefully the writing is better.
