This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Like other reviewers, I wish it was a little longer. I enjoyed the characters and the story. It was well written (which is always a plus in my book) and kept my interest though I felt there needed to be a bit more depth to the story. Samik being gay? was totally out of the blue. Holly Bennett has a lot of potential as a writer and I will be looking for future books. ( )

This was a very good quick read. I loved the characters and the little adventures they went on. I only wish that this was waayy longer....maybe even a series. I wanted to hear more about the characters and spend more time with them.
Samik's attitude and Rowan's serious, mysterious nature made for some pretty funny dialogue. I was laughing through out the whole book.
And the whole thing with Samik liking Rowan and wanting to kiss him....that would have been fine but I just wish Bennett talked about it more....besides the one time. It didnt really go any where.
Some of the reviews said they thought it was for a younger audience...but I have to disagree. There is quite a bit of cussing and some scenes too mature for younger kids.
I miss Rowan and Samik...wish I could read more about them.
But I liked it and I am glad it is in my library. I will defiantly be reading Bennett's other novels.

Redwing was an okay read. It was a little difficult to get into, but I pushed through. I really enjoyed the story and the characters, but there simply needed to be more. I felt like the ending was rushed, and it shouldn't have been. Redwing could have been much longer and filled with way more details. Yes, it was a good book. But it could use just a bit more of ... everything. ( )

I found it difficult to initially get into this book. Once I was able to get into the book it had some good ideas and characters. I think the plot and the descriptions needed more, but I also think that it was more because the books target was for a much younger reader. I did note that on the book it said tween. I loved the cover of the book. Overall I'm not disappointed that I read Redwing. I would recommend it for a much younger reader. ( )

Could not get into it at all. Read the first few chapters over and over. Thought the cover looked intriguing though. It isn't often that I can't finish a book. ( )
