Having drawn from her own experiences living in a similar community Ellie Marney makes it sound so convincing From Bo’s first experience with them and really coming to appreciate how they all pitch in for the sake of each other I actually could see why it was so convincing From it’s rural huts to the organic foods and the bonfires and smiling faces gosh this community seemed so welcoming Not only could I see Bo getting drawn in to their philosophy and their ways of living but I could even see myself wanting to live there as well That’s a testament to how convincing this off the grid rural community was and I really wanted to see the mystery of it unfoldingFamily friends community engagement and environmentalism – White Night explores many important themes in a teenager’s life I adored the family dynamics strong friendships but also the flawed relationships that made everything feel real The off the grid community of Eden was definitely fascinating and I loved watching the mystery unravel – both with the community and with Bo’s family This is a #LoveOzYA book that I absolutely recommend for its compelling mysteries excellent family dynamics and fantastic male point of view I received a review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
