    1. Have you ever read a book and by the end realized with utmost conviction that you just had media d j vu For me, reading DEVIANT by Helen FitzGerald brought on these completely realized feelings that I had lived this book elsewhere, and it only took a few seconds for me to realize why DEVIANT is the literary replica of the 1990s teen thriller Disturbing Behavior view spoiler hide spoiler If you have not seen this movie, please, don t google it and find out what Disturbing Behavior is about And if [...]


    2. Deviant I received this audio book for review from AudioGo through Audiobook Jukebox This audio was narrated by Kirsten Potter Her performance was believable and enjoyable although the Scottish accent was sometimes a bit much Since the main character was from Scotland, the accent was fitting though, I just didn t care for it Otherwise, this was an adequate narration Deviant was an interesting story with some unusual twists Initially, I was able to really identify with the main character, Abigail [...]


    3. Wow and dang This was a giveaway, and I received and advanced edition The problem with this is that it will be FOREVER before I get to read the follow up I like the story It took me a while to figure out where it was going, especially in this hugely popular market of the supernatural power genre I kept waiting for superpowers to show up and that s not it.The main character, Abigail, is great She s been through some hard times and it s left her a little rough around the edges However, she has als [...]


    4. Book Review Giveaway There was something about the book cover for Deviant that drew me in I kept seeing it and it kept haunting me, so when I got the opportunity to get a copy I jumped on it Helen FitzGerald is an international bestselling author of both adult thrillers and YA fiction, with her novel Dead Lovely currently in film production As a prior UK parole officer and social worker, who better to write a YA novel titled Deviant I don t know what I was expecting with a title like that but I [...]


    5. I wanted to read something I would normally not read for a swapbot project.This book came up in my random search It starts out slow, but I find out some interesting things about Abigail There are several situations that made sence and other parts that had me wanting it to go a different direction perhaps because I m into science fiction and history that it was difficult to keep an open mind Abigail seems to understand a lot about having to grow up fast, then having to go to a new location and s [...]


    6. 6 10This book was okay and I liked it but it didn t blow me away I mean I liked the concept and it was okay and it was a nice read however, it didn t make me emotional when I read itI would recommend it for a nice little read.


    7. I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this book I started it on Monday and finished it earlier today I loved this book I thought that the plot was great and as I read it I really felt a connection to the characters There was a few unexpected twists that kept me reading late into the night I can hardly wait for the next book



    8. This kinda felt like the author decided halfway through to start writing a different book than the one she started And then didn t have enough time to finish it properly.


    9. Anmerkung Der Klappentext ist nicht ganz korrekt, was Abigails Leben betrifft Abigails Mutter gab ihre Tochter schon im zarten Alter von 3 Wochen in die Obhut einer Freundin, bevor sie verschwand Und so wuchs Abigail gl cklich in einer Art Hippie Kommune auf, in einem Wohnwagen mit der gutm tigen, liebevollen Nieve bis Nieve schlie lich an Krebs starb, als Abi 9 Jahre alt war Danach wuchs das M dchen in Heimen und Institutionen auf nicht bei Pflegeeltern.Das lieblose Leben mit abgestumpften Betr [...]


    10. So, Deviant was a hard hitting novel, and it was actually pretty good Alright, so let s see I don t review much, so you won t get much from my profile, but I really like mystery Do you Okay, then, that s either a yes or a no If yes , you ll probably like this book Yay If not, you still probably will Now, let s move on to the actual review which is what you came here for Bear in mind I am far from professional, though, let that be said SPOILER ALERTThroughout Maybe just a few Background Info Righ [...]


    11. I won a free copy from a giveaway I this book is not really good but it s not really bad And it s better than just okay It was a simple read and was a very quick read There really wasn t any big complicated story even though there s this pseudo build up Just taking it from the surface it s not that bad I didn t feel like I wasted my time But if you read my review and you are picky about these things then you may want to skip this book The story as you can gather from the description is about a g [...]


    12. For me, the plot on this book had some weak points that made it a little challenged There s a group called Granoch, that s experimenting with mind control drugs, at first I thought it was a government sanctioned experimentyhow a woman named Sophie get s involved with the main guy, has a daughter with him, at some point realizes that she doesn t agree with his project experiment, and he tells everyone she s crazy, and takes their daughter to live with him in California Sophie, has a second daught [...]


    13. I ll like to say that I m not a big YA contemporary reader, however, I liked to think I m a good judge on picking books of this genre to read, and I m glad that I was right about this one for the most part With my very forgetful nature, I knew I wanted to read this book, however, I couldn t quite remember what it was about All I could remember was that it was about a girl whose mother who had abandoned her had died and she travels to America And, that it involved some underground movement and st [...]


    14. Deviant by Helen Fitzgerald is a book that takes you on a journey with Abigail Thom This book is a great read, Ms Fitzgerald is able to take you into the moment and keep you reading until the end.Abigail has been living in the state Glasgow care since she was nine when Nieve her mom s best friend died, today she was brought to the office and told her birth mother had died the previous evening at a local hospital and the nurse had a letter for her Abigail was curious her mother was so close but h [...]


    15. Abigail is a cynical, stubborn Scottish girl who s slowly starting to figure out her identity Since the age of 9, Abigail has been living in a place for Unloved Nobodies until the day when she finds out that her mother has died and that she has a family in the U.S Upon arriving in the States, Abigail begins to figure out that her new family has a fair share of secrets.The beginning of the book was a bit slow for me, but the plot became a lot interesting Abigail s relationship with Becky was by [...]


    16. Source Received an ARC from publisher in exchange for an honest review.When I found out about this tour, I was excited to participate because Deviant sounded like a very unique story I love the publisher s synopsis above because I think it does a great job at capturing the many interesting bits of this story Abigail s upbringing in Scotland, her movement through foster homes, her newfound relatives, her sister s death, the plot aimed at controlling teen behavior It sounded like a very far reachi [...]


    17. My sister read this book and she basically forced me to read it too I read the back and thought it looked interesting enough that I should give it a try I have kinda mixed feelings about it It wasn t bad, but it wasn t that great either I thought the plot was interesting, but it was kinda long and it got boring quickly Also I know it s a suspenseful book, but there was not a lot of love I knew it was sad because Becky died and Abi likes Stick, but there wasn t a lot of romanic feelings between t [...]


    18. When we first meet Abigail, she is the sullen, moody, irritable teenager that she appears to be We all either have known a teen like that or we were a teen like that, right While this story started out a bit slower than I would usually like, and this book was perhaps a bit outside of my comfort zone, I really did enjoy reading it The second half of the story was a total roller coaster ride and you never knew what you were going to find around each corner Abigail was so used to abandonment that i [...]


    19. Well, this really isn t the type of book I would pick up and read To be honest, I thought it was a vampire story when I first read the description Guess I should have given it than a glance It is a teen book about interpersonal relationship, friendship, and betrayal With that said, this is the type of book you have to get through the first half to get to the good stuff The author spends a great deal of time building up the characters and on than one occasion lost me in the story Personally, I [...]


    20. At first, I thought that Deviant, By Helen Fitzgerald, would be just another teen romance novel, but that is far from the case Abigail Thom, the main character, is a 16 year old girl from scotland that has been in and out of foster homes since she was 6 When her birth mother, that she never knew, dies due to cancer, she is sent airplane tickets to go to L.A California Her father, Graham, lives there and he wants her to come to L.A to live with him, her 18 year old sister Becky, and his new wife [...]


    21. This Young Adult novel certainly holds a lot of surprises Abigail Thom is a young girl in the care system in Scotland She receives sudden notice that her birth mother has died and left something to the girl she abandoned in a commune at only a few weeks old Abigail is even shocked to learn that she has an older sister and a father living in LA 0 and that she is to go meet them.What opens as an engaging YA family drama, soon shifts into something It becomes a fast paced thriller as Abigail navi [...]


    22. I received this book as part of the First Read Program.I was unsure what to think of this book I started out thinking it was simply a young girl getting to know her new family and her new surroundings but it quickly changed into something attempting to be sinister The pace of the book almost seemed rushed as though the author had an idea they quickly wanted to push through The concept of the book is good, it just needs to be developed in my opinion The characters are mostly static and the rela [...]


    23. Deviant was a refreshing read I ve been reading a lot of young adult books lately, and this was one of the most well written ya books I ve read To begin with, it s written in Third Person Limited, which establishes the main character as separate from the author.The story does take a bit to get going, but it s well worth the wait The last third of the book flies by The story is well thought out with intriguing rising action and a fast paced heart racing climax The book ends in a bit of cliff hang [...]


    24. I received an advance copy of this book through First Reads giveaways I was intrigued by the title and the fact that the main character was Scottish I was not aware that this was part one of a multiple book series as I don t usually read those, but having said that, I am glad that I did read this book because it was one of the best books I have read lately The characters were very well drawn, the writing was smooth and easy, the plot was not predictable and I thoroughly enjoyed it I would love t [...]


    25. Scottish teen Abigail has been in an orphanage type place since she was 9 years old Her biological mother dies at the beginning of the book, and Abigail inherits a letter and money from her mother Then she is on an adventure to the USA to meet her biological father and sister There she starts to unravel secrets about a worldwide plot Some intrigue, a little far fetched perhaps that s why I m not enad with science fiction ordinarily although I tried not to let my bias affect my rating As far as c [...]


    26. This book is about a girl named Abigail, who grows up without her parents She spends her life in different care homes for children At the age of sixteen, her mother dies and leaves a note behind, letting her know that she has a sister and a father in the United States After meeting her new family things change for the worse There is a plot to control teenagers that misbehave and Abigail finds herself in the middle This book was enjoyable, but somewhat predictable I liked the main character, but [...]


    27. This book almost has a split down the middle The first half is about a street kid from Scotland finding her long lost family The second half is about a mystery that involves the government, secrets and death It almost feels like two different books, but that doesn t detract from the story as much as you might think Abigail is a smart kid who focuses on survival, but doesn t completely alienate herself from the world around her The struggles that she goes through are real and difficult, and somet [...]


    28. I m really disappointed because I think this could have been a good book if the author had stuck to the mystery premise I was excited to see how Becky and Abigail s relationship would develop, and to solve the mystery of why Abigail hadn t been able to spend her childhood with her mother if she d been right there in Glasgow the whole time But then Fitzgerald threw in a completely yawn worthy evil adults trying to control the minds of kids twist, and my interest was lost If you re interested in l [...]


    29. I received the book for free through First Reads.This book wasn t a type that I usually enjoy, nor am interested in, but I actually really liked it It started out really slow, the whole plot dragged on a little too much for me Once it got into the original concept I really enjoyed it The beginning went to slow for me, and the ending went to fast Everything happened a little fast for my liking at the end and I was not a huge fan of how it ended, but overall it was a really interesting concept and [...]
