Hello friends! Welcome back to Adele Is Reading! Today I’m posting my book review of
The June Boys, by Court Stevens.
I want to give a quick Thank you, to both The Fantastic Flying Book Club, and the Thomas Nelson (Fiction) publishing group for allowing me to read The June Boys (via Netgalley) in exchange for an honest review (and to share a few of my favourite quotes from the book!).
I also want to thank Court Stevens for writing The June Boys. You’ve riddled me with ugly crying.
Today’s post is actually one of the stops for the June Boys Book Blog Tour. Click here to see the other stops on The June Boys book blog tour! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Trigger Warnings: Blood, kidnappings, death via drowning, gun mention and gun usage.
The Gemini Thief could be anyone. Your father, your mother, your best friend’s crazy uncle. Some country music star’s deranged sister. Anyone.
The Gemini Thief is a serial kidnapper, who takes three boys and holds them captive from June 1st to June 30th of the following year. The June Boys endure thirteen months of being stolen, hidden, observed, and fed before they are released, unharmed, by their masked captor. The Thief is a pro, having eluded authorities for nearly a decade and taken at least twelve boys.
Now Thea Delacroix has reason to believe the Gemini Thief took a thirteenth victim: her cousin, Aulus McClaghen.
But the game changes when one of the kidnapped boys turns up dead. Together with her boyfriend Nick and her best friends, Thea is determined to find the Gemini Thief and the remaining boys before it’s too late. Only she’s beginning to wonder something sinister, something repulsive, something unbelievable, and yet, not impossible:
What if her father is the Gemini Thief?
Release Date: March 03, 2020.
Genre: Mystery, Young Adult, Thriller.
‘You don’t owe your truths to everyone.’
1/3 of my favourite quotes from The June Boys.
I stumbled upon The June Boys via The Fantastic Flying Bookclub, and I am so glad to have applied to be a part of the The June Boys Blog Tour! Before I had even sat down to read The June Boys I had thought two things: the first being, I have this story down pat (aka, I knew what was going to happen). The second thought I had was, ‘either The June Boys is going to happen the exact way I thought it would, or the plot is going to be wildly different.’
Once I sat down to read The June Boys, I wanted to say that I knew who the number one suspect was / or was going to be. Friends, I was so wrong. I was so, so off. Continue reading
