Radiance - Alyson Noel So it was hard for me to rate this one. As a middle grades read= 5/5, but going by my scale- I couldn't do that because it does not equate to awesome or REALLY liked it in my book. This is a cute, clean and quick read. I finished it today. I didn't realize (or more likely forgot) that this was a spin-off from Immortals, but when I saw Riley's name and Buttercup I remembered. I was kind of sad that we didn't get much detail on her interactions with Ever, or her thoughts on it, but I guess that we saw enough of that with Evermore. I felt like the plot was rushed though- but maybe that is because I don't do a lot of MG stuff. I feel like a lot of the plot points could have been fleshed out a lot. And there is a lot of drama, temper tantrums, etc, but go back to this is pre-teen, that makes a lot of sense. All of that said, it is a quick delve into the afterlife, and you get a sense of resolution, which is good with all of the cliffies out there today.
