This Savage Song

Author: Victoria Schwab

Grade: B

This was the Owlcrate book for July and probably my most anticipated read of the summer and overall I’m kind of torn on it.

Kate Harker and August Flynn live in a world where violence breeds actual monsters. Kate is desperately trying to prove herself to her father, which in her case means being as big of a monster as him. August is technically a monster who doesn’t want to be. When the two are thrown together under heightened circumstances they learn things about themselves and each other and generally begin to realize that the definitions of monster and human may not be a simple as they thought.
