Description

Winner of the Michael L. Printz Award * ALA Best Book for Young Adults * Kirkus Best Book

Jellicoe Road is a dazzling tale that is part love story, part family drama, and part coming-of-age novel. Described by Kirkus Reviews as “a beautifully rendered mystery” and by VOYA as “a great choice for more sophisticated readers and those teens who like multifaceted stories and characters.”

Abandoned by her mother on Jellicoe Road when she was eleven, Taylor Markham, now seventeen, is finally being confronted with her past. But as the reluctant leader of her boarding school dorm, there isn't a lot of time for introspection. And while Hannah, the closest adult Taylor has to family, has disappeared, Jonah Griggs, the boy who might be the key to unlocking the secrets for Taylor’s past, is back in town, moody stares and all.

In this absorbing story by Melina Marchetta, nothing is as it seems and every clue leads to more questions as Taylor tries to work out the connection between her mother dumping her; Hannah finding her; Hannah’s sudden departure; a mysterious stranger who once whispered something in her ear; a boy in her dreams; five kids who lived on Jellicoe Road eighteen years ago; and the maddening and magnetic Jonah Griggs, who knows her better than she thinks he does.

If Taylor can put together the pieces of her past, she just might be able to change her future.

Amazing

One of the best books I've ever read!

Incredible

Such an incredible story.there's no way when you first pick up this book that you know the ins and outs of where it's heading. Incredible story. One of my all time favorites.

Amazing

This is a great book! It's up being one of my favorite books with Hunger Games if that helps you tell how great it is. The only down to the book was the beginning. Not that the beginning was bad, it was just slow. Melina Marchetta doesn't tell you everything you need to know in the beginning. That's what makes it confusing and hard for some to read. But if you do read the book and feel disappointed in the beginning don't give up on it because chances are you'll love the book!
