Review of Last Chance

Last Chance is a book about a young girl named Robyn Hunter. After getting in some trouble with the law, Robyn gets sentenced to work at an animal shelter for most of the summer. Figuring she would have the worst summer ever, she arrived at the animal shelter, all hope lost. Everything turned upside down when she ran into someone from her past.

I thought that Last Chance was an okay book. Honestly, it wasn't one of Norah McClintock's best books. I wasn't too fond of how Robyn evolved throughout the book but I was very happy with how it ended and I think I might read more of the series. I would recommend this book to people who like mystery novels and predicting the end before it happens. Overall I think the end where Robyn finally saw the light made it worthwhile.

“ exciting read that will challenge young readers to take note of the events that develop into clues...”

“The story is a little heavy handed, and the mystery is hardly thrilling.”
