Pelican Freak

Immediately, I am intrigued by this girl, whose POV we are treated to as she’s brilliant and living in the ever-eventful Portland, OR. I become more and more attached as I read on, only to discover that if I put the book down I am struck with that, “I miss my book” feeling and so, I must read until there is no more to be read.

Going along I cannot help but appreciate the current pop-culture references and mentions as they go along with my own perceptions of an area I do love so much but with objectivity.

I finished this book in a short amount of time due to its being so addictive; I do hope there’s more to come with these characters, but it was wrapped up neatly that it works as a standalone as well.
