Three Fab Reviews for The Stillburrow Crush!

We're pretty excited about the rave reviews that 2010 debut author Linda Kage has been getting for The Stillburrow Crush!

First, Bobby over at Book Wenches gave it a 4.5 (out of 5) rating and had this to say:

Linda Kage’s novel The Stillburrow Crush is a young adult romance with a little something extra added. Although it revolves around the plot device of the nerdy girl winning the high school star athlete, it also addresses a number of deeper social issues. This story looks at teen pregnancy, small town social order, teenage peer pressure, and how one’s own perceptions or misperceptions can affect their life. I found this to be a quick and very enjoyable read that satisfied my craving for a sweet romance while giving me a story with a satisfying plot.

Lauren of Lauren's Crammed Bookshelf gave it an A- and said:

I've been under a lot of stress lately, mostly with school. So when I sat down with The Stillburrow Crush a couple of days ago, I was hoping it would push away my stressors for a bit by being a funny and cute romance type book. Luckily enough, The Stillburrow Crush completely succeed and went beyond in doing that!

And Elie of Ellz Readz said:

I fell in love with the characters in The Stillburrow Crush. Carrie is a very down to Earth teenager who lives in the shadow of some brighter stars in her little town. Luke, who initially seems like he would be a jerk, quickly became one of my favorite characters. The reader gets peeks early on of a softer side of him. The lives of the characters was written in a way that I could see them vividly.
