my rating 1-5 stars:
Taylor Markham was abandoned by her mother at a gas station on Jellicoe Road when she was only eleven years old. And the only thing she remembers about her father is being carried on his shoulders.
Now, Taylor is seventeen years old and a senior at the boarding school that is on Jellicoe Road and she still knows nothing about her past or her parents. On her spare time she tries to figure out more about her past while trying to deal with the territory war going on between her boarding school the "Cadets" and the "Townies". She starts getting clues about her mysterious past when a supervisor at the school, who knew Taylor's mother goes missing. At every clue she becomes closer to discovering more about herself.
Wow, Melina Marchetta grabbed me at the first page and I was fully immersed into the eventful life of Taylor Markham. This book was a great book to read, it gave you a touch of everything, love, family, mystery and faith.
This book is one of my favorite books in the world. I could not put it down or part with it. It has parts that will make you laugh, mad, cry and smile. This book is a must read for every teen out there. This is not a book specifically written for a certain gender audience, it is for guys and girls.
This book is written for teens and adults. Due to content in the book I would not suggest anyone under the age of 14 read this book.
