Book Review

POINT OF RETREAT
by Colleen Hoover

Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult

RT Rating

The sequel to Hoover’s sensational debut is told from Will’s point of view. And if the first book tugged on a heartstring or two, then this story will break hearts. In Slammed, Will was shown as reserved, but Point of Retreat reveals his struggles and vulnerabilities. With her wonderfully real characters, Hoover has once again set the bar high. And at the end of the story, readers just might be inspired to write their own “butterflying” slam poetry.

Will and Lake are back and raising their siblings as a family together; however, a person from Will’s past threatens their immediate future. When Lake learns his secret, she pushes Will away, yet he refuses to give up on them. Will is determined to win Lake back. And just as it seems as if everything is looking up, Will is faced with another setback — and his relationship with Lake may not survive the fallout. (ATRIA BOOKS, Aug., 322 pp., $15.00)
