Book Review and Giveaway: The Marvelous by, Claire Kann

The Marvelous
Claire Kann
Publication date: June 8th 2021
Genres: Contemporary, Mystery, Young Adult

From the author of Let’s Talk About Love and If It Makes You Happy, this exuberant YA Novel follows six teens locked together in a mansion, contending for a life-changing cash prize in a competition run by a reclusive heiress.

Everyone thinks they know Jewel Van Hanen. Heiress turned actress turned social media darling who created the massively popular video-sharing app, Golden Rule.

After mysteriously disappearing for a year, Jewel makes her dramatic return with an announcement: she has chosen a few lucky Golden Rule users to spend an unforgettable weekend at her private estate. But once they arrive, Jewel ingeniously flips the script: the guests are now players in an elaborate estate-wide game. And she’s tailored every challenge and obstacle to test whether they have what it takes to win–at any cost.

Told from the perspective of three dazzling players–Nicole: the new queen of Golden Rule; Luna: Jewel’s biggest fan; and Stella: a brilliant outsider–this novel will charm its way into your heart and keep you guessing how it all ends because money isn’t the only thing at stake.

The Marvelous is marvelously fun. I had a great time reading this book and I think you will too. It has a bit of The Inheritance Games feel to it at the beginning (which is a book that I loved from last year) but it quickly goes it’s own way. With tons of puzzles and wordplay, The Marvelous keeps you guessing. I really don’t want to say too much about the plot and blow it for you but get ready for a bit of confusing entertainment.

The three unique characters and voices that tell the story really keep you turning the pages. Much of the start of the book helps you to get to the know the characters so when the plot kicks in you are feeling for them and everything they are going through.

Pick this one up. You won’t be sorry. 5 SIPS all around!!

I give this book 5 Sips!

FYI: Trigger Warnings
Kidnapping/confinement, panic attacks, death of a parent/grief, emotional abuse, fatphobia, food insecurity, gun violence
