Review: Remix by Non Pratt

Version 2

I loved this book so much. It’s a very accurate portrayal of how the friendships between teenage girls are.

It’s a long time since I was 15/16 but I remember the flirting with boys, the trying to be more than your best friend was, the horrible arguments you had that felt like the end of the world. It’s all in this book and it takes you right back to that time.

Non Pratt really captured the way that at 16 you are in that middle ground between childhood and adulthood – how you’re capable and legally allowed to do so many things but the emotional ability to cope with those situations isn’t always there yet. At no point does Non Pratt talk down to the teenagers this book is aimed at, I’m sure many teenagers would love this book and see themselves in it.

I loved Kaz and Ruby, but my favourite character was Owen and I wish we’d seen more of him. He just seemed like a really cool, nice, laid back guy.

The characters felt authentic, they were real and I miss them already now I’ve finished reading the book.

I already can’t wait for the next Non Pratt novel!

9/10 stars
