Going Underground characters ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Es him reason to be hopeful again Except that Del's crush comes with a sea of complications and he's not sure he is ready to reveal his past Will the truth set him freeor will it dig him in even deeper. Oh my Ohmyohmyohmy This was a great book I knew this would be good because of the content but I had no idea how great it was going to be I have to go ahead and put out there that the style of the writing in Susan Vaught s book Going Underground reminds me a lot of Chris Crutcher He is an awesome YA writer BTW The story does alternate between the present Del s senior year and the past It s not a choppy flip flop either it flows really nicely The only thing that would make it better is if there was some type of text feature clue to the present past change Maybe some italics or something I could see how that might be confusing to a younger reader that isn t used to this type of writingI don t give out too many 5 star reviews because I don t think there are that many you have to read this kind of books out there Don t get me wrong there are PLENTY of great books but not so many that earn a permanent place on my personal bookshelf This book is getting a permanent home In fact I just pre ordered two copies from Two When my son gets a little older I am going to make him read this bookYou get a pretty good idea of what the book is about from the back cover What you don t get however is how amazing the writing is This book covers a very serious and real problem with our youth I know as a middle school teacher I am constantly having to talk to kids about appropriate use of cell phones and the internet I can t even tell you how many phones I have confiscated in the last 7 years that have had inappropriate pictures on them Too many that s for sure Obviously when I saw this book I wanted to read it I thought it would open up a whole new door for teachable moments Maybe just maybe it could teach my students a lesson about life Oh my goodness Wait Isn t that what great YA literature does I think soAs deep and heavy as some of the content is there is a nice bit of comic relief from Fred a talking bid Don t think this bird is a random placement either It s perfect She yes the bird is a she is the perfect tension breaker otherwise this book might be too serious and untouchable Having that crazy bird makes the story so much accessible Then there is Del Poor pitiful conflicted Del I loved him You get a great insight into what it would be like to be a victim of the legal system I feel so sorry for this kid You know there are real perverts out there that take pictures of kids and do horrible things with them but then there are also kids that do stupid things Unfortunately Del gets treated as one of the perverts He spends the remaining four years of his high school life dealing with his actionsI m not going to tell much about this complicated story because I don t want to give away too much of the beauty This books deals with the controversial topic of sexting in such a real way that it is going to be one of those teen must reads I know I m going to recommend it to my teacher friends that have teenage kids It might be a little too mature for younger readers but it s still a great book There isn t any graphic details or things like that but this is a story about a kid who gets punished for being sexually curious You can make your callThis is a great novel that I would probably place next to Laurie Halse Anderson s Twisted and Chris Crutcher s Inexcusable Fantastic

Going Underground characters ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Del's not a bad guy He's just a misunderstood criminalSeventeen year old Del is a good kid but one mimro mistake three years ago was all it took to turn him into a social outcast Now with a criminal re. Del never meant for any of it to happen Neither did Cory They were children but they liked each other and they decided that before they went too far too soon they d test the waters with photos of themselves That one simple act sent Del s world spiraling into a dark abyss of beign a convicted felon and registered sex offender Years later he s desperate to put the pieces back together go to college and find a good job but his past is still haunting him Can he find peace with his past make a future for himself and enjoy happiness again or will his past haunt him foreverYou know I ve never really considered an issue book like this I love me some twisty nonsense but Going Underground was a whole new realm for me because it s something that I don t know too much about Frankly the only time I hear about someone releasing naked pictures of themselves it s when I m perusing Perez because I m bored Susan Vaught has cleverly crafted a story that tackles an extremely sensitive controversial and delicate issue with ease with Going Underground Creating heartfelt characters that display two sides to the controversy surrounding cell phones their potential for misuse and the crimes that can be committed when using them Rather than painting the story in black and white the author has given us shades of gray in Going Underground allowing the reader to see a victim in the perpetrator of a crimeGoing Underground wasn t the easiest read for me but I m by no means saying it was poorly done The story was powerful and profound and Del was an extremely likable MC He was honest respectful hardworking and decent despite what happened three years ago I felt for him and his situation truly I did I think the main problem I had was that it s not an issue I know too much about and I ve always seen that one side of it Sending inappropriate images via cell phones is wrong that s what I believe but Going Underground made me think because Del and Cory had no sort of malice in mind when they did so It was curiosity pure and simple It was hard for me to reconcile the two I will note that the book does jump from the present to three years in the past where we see what brought Del to his position today and it was done well The transitions weren t jarring and it flowed smoothly I also enjoyed the touches of lightness in an otherwise somber booklike the talking parrot Fred Trust me she fits into the story of Going Underground seamlessly The only other ualm I really had was that I felt the ending was a bit too convenient and too easy Do I love ribbons and bows Sure but are they always realistic Heck noAll in all Going Underground was a very good read and I m sure many a reader will get a powerful message out of it I think my main problem was perhaps my lack of knowledge on the subject but that s not to say the author didn t create a remarkable story I give it a very strong 35 out of 5 and I d recommend it to all fans of YA and adult reads as well those who enjoy contemporary and issue booksI received this book free of charge from the publisher in exchange for an honest review This in no way affected my opinion or review of this book

    read Going Underground E–pub/E–book [Going Underground] ´ Susan Vaught Susan Vaught Ô 7 free read Having read the back of the book blurb and based on the cover I wasn't sure how I would like this book I mean the idea behind it is clearly something young adults should think about and understand the conseuences of their actions in the eyes of the current laws but how would it work as a story plot? Would it come off preachy? Or would it just be a back drop to an otherwise generic young adult novel about two kids in love? Since
