Jellicoe Road

Jellicoe Road
Melina Marchetta
**** 4 Stars

At age eleven Taylor Markham was abandoned by her mother. At fourteen, she ran away from boarding school, only to be tracked down and brought back by a mysterious stranger. Now seventeen, Taylor's the reluctant leader of her schools underground community, whose annual territory war with the Townies and visiting Cadets has just begun. This year, though, the Cadets are lead by Jonah Griggs, and Taylor can't avoid his intense gaze for long. To make matters worse, Hannah, the one adult Taylor trusts, has disappeared. But if Taylor can piece together the clues Hannah left behind, the truth she uncovers might not just settle her past, but also change her future.

This book was interesting, it was very emotional and sad. I personally liked it, with all the territory and scrimmage stuff. But at times, it got very confusing, very confusing. Like the names would get mixed up or they might switch from the present to the past. Because thats how the story was set up, it was the past and present, the events tied together, so close until they finally collided.
But I thought It was still very good and I strongly recommend it.
