Brother and sister Zander and Van have a secret A BIG secret They protect their secret and each other at all costs until the new girl in town Ivy threatens to expose them bothWhen I was reading Wicked Hunger I had an eerily similar feeling as I did reading The Hunger Games The two stories aren t alike plot or character wise but they both have a darkness that one doesn t usually associate with YA As I was reading Wicked Hunger I kept thinking I shouldn t be enjoying this I shouldn t be enjoying this Exactly the same reaction I had to The Hunger Games With HG I shouldn t have enjoyed it because it was about children killing children With WH I shouldn t have enjoyed it because it was about Zander and Van struggling with their hunger to cause others intense physical and sometimes emotional painSometimes it s the books we shouldn t enjoy that we enjoy the mostZander and Van can t explain WHY they have this hunger for pain only that it has been passed down through their family They think they are alone in the world and can t explain their struggles with anyone for their own safety as well as the safety of everyone around them They both do their best to control the hunger Zander by channeling it into football and Van by gathering a group of close friends around her and teaching dance classes but controlling the hunger is the hardest thing Zander has ever done when he meets Ivy She fuels his hunger unlike any other person he s ever met Plus he is immediately attracted to her so that really doesn t help Van feels her hunger for Ivy too but luckily her judgement isn t clouded by teenage boy hormonesWhen Van discovers what Ivy has planned to out their secret she races to save Zander Ivy and herselfCharacter Development 35 out of 5 stars Zander and Van are well thought out and portrayed I like that they have distinct personalities but you also REALLY believe them as brother and sister Ivy is complicated the reader can never figure out what s going on with her but Gladden does a great job showing how untrustworthy she is But my favorite character is probably Oscar He is Zander and Van s older brother who has literally been driven insane by his hunger Although he only featured in 2 scenes I could tell Gladden had his character down pat His moments of crazy were beautifully interspersed with moments of lucidity and I m really hoping for of him as the series progressesI had to take stars off for some of the minor characters though Van s group of friends is made out to be very important to her controlling her hunger but the only one who gets any major screen time is Ketchup fun name And even Ketchup s character is very minimally drawn We don t get to see what it is about him that Van loves so much I really wish there had been scenes showing us their history together because it is clearly important to Van Then there s Noah a new kid in Van s life who seems to only be introduced as a distraction immediately forgotten Van and Zander s grandmother is their care giver but only appears in a few short scenes We are told how strict she is but it s never shown A definite missed opportunity that I m hoping will be corrected in book 2Plot 4 out of 5 stars There actually is not a lot of action to this book What drives the story is Zander and Van s inner turmoil as they deal with the hunger That being said it is obvious that Gladden has put a lot of thought into her world There are many of uestions left unanswered at the end of the book plenty to fill books 2 and 3Writing Style Voice of the Author 4 out of 5 stars Gladden does something uniue and it really works well for this story She combines present tense and past tense It gives the story an immediacy that intensifies the emotions of the characters She also does a fantastic job of moving seamlessly between Van and Zander s points of view I never once got confused as to which character s head I was in I took one star off because I found it difficult to jump into the story Gladden held back at the beginning a lot of the backstory but then teased the reader with it continuously I don t mind teasers when they are subtle but these were not subtle I understand the purpose build up the mystery and the tension and then reveal bombshells throughout the book it s just not my favorite way to do it I know some readers who would absolutely disagree with me thoughFavorite LinesBruises can tell stories better than most peopleThe pain burns up my arms and into my chest but I can t escape the animalistic thrill of destructionInstead the colors look to be slowly blending together a potter s clay not yet molded into what it is meant to become
