Read & download Spin Author Lamar Giles Lamar Giles ☆ 8 Read & download Summary Ù eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ☆ Lamar Giles Level leaving her old life and old friends behind With the new info comes new motives New suspects And a fandom that shows its deadly side As Kya and Fuse come closer to the twisted truth the killer's no longer amused But murdering Paris was simple enough so getting rid of her nobody friends shouldn't be an issu. 375I wish Giles would take some thriller writing workshops from E Lockhart or Jennifer Lynn Barnes because this book could have been so good He was missing some character development that would have made this book a 4 star or This book is basically a thrillerwhodunit in the musicrap world which in itself is nuanced Considering the mysterious deaths of Biggie and Tupac this setting is not out of the ordinary My issues with this book are minor but it was a lot of little things that added up The pacing was my biggest issue The first third was a set up for our two main characters and things didn t start kicking in until 35% in Kya was an interesting character and had a lot of grief that had little to no focus in the first 35% I wish Giles would have gone into her her mental state and her relationship with her mother For the first 35% the narrators were barely grieving and the investigation into Paris murder was absent from the page I watch a lot of crime TV and I know that detectives try to solve a murder within the first 48 hours but weeks had gone by with no police interaction with the characters The police eventually did come on page but it was really late Which leads me to my next issueGiles tried to do too much in the first 35% of the book which made it drag Giles tried to use Paris the murdered girl as a commentary on how the police and the media ignore the deaths of Black girls over White girls And while this is prevalent I just watched a documentary on called Unseen and you should check it out because it s fascinating it doesn t uite fit Paris case Police ignore common missing Black girls not celebrities Paris seemed to be euivalent to DJ Khaled very well known in Virginia and about to be worldwide The police wouldn t ignore a murder of a well known celebrity I think the inaction of the police in the first 35% of the book was trying to show the inaction of the real police but once again they wouldn t ignore a celebrity I wasn t buying it If that topic is so strong to Giles he should have written that book and it probably would have been good The other BIGGEST issue was the Dark Nation I understand that Giles was trying to do something different and I applaud it but that just didn t land for me too farfetched The Dark Nation was comparable to The Beehive except they were online and in person they came after you on social media AND in person WHAT They were kidnapping people and threatening physical harm because Paris case wasn t moving fast enough and they stopped because they were given unreleased music WHAT No just no The attacks on social media was realistic and okay and when they were at the concert at the end and they all came together was realistic and okay but the kidnapping was just stupidNow for the minor issues There was not enough of Paris The story began the night of her death and we meet Paris during the months before I thought Paris was an interesting character but she wasn t on the page enough She uickly began to spiral out of control during her rise in success but we didn t see the before Paris and if we had her spiral would have made a larger impact to her story I liked Paris a lot and she just didn t get enough page time I liked Paris A LOT than Bri in On the Come Up Now for the likes I liked how Giles used social media I thought Fuse s social media savviness was authentic and added to her character I liked the female friendships and I liked that THERE WAS NO ROMANCE Giles didn t create some stupid romance that would have distracted the reader from the thriller or Paris THANK YOU I liked Fuse s relationship with father and the resolution at the end The pacing on the last two thirds of the book was pretty good I read almost the whole thing I usually skip through the end of most books because I m over it I guessed who the murderer was when Giles basically wanted the reader to guess so it wasn t predictable from the beginning and it wasn t some rando character I liked how the murder was revealed and I thought it was well written Giles has a lot to say and he is a good writer His characters were pretty spot on and the whole mystery aspect was pretty good I liked the diversity of the Black characters There are poor Black people and wealthy Black people and book smart Black people and talented Black people and Black people who are raised by their grandparents and Black people who have two parents and a lot of times in books like this that is the focal point But in this book they were just Black and Hispanic teens who happened to come from different neighborhoods with different families and I appreciated that I thought the inclusion of old school rap and new school was just enough and I thought Spin was much better than On the Come Up I know they are different genres and dealt with different issues but Giles writing and execution was far better than Thomas in On the Come Up If you are a librarian I think this is a pretty good book for book club as there is a lot to discuss and it s a great book talk title

Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestWow Scholastic went edgy When I was a kid I think the most controversial book I ever read from a Scholastic imprint was Louis Sachar s HOLES I m honestly psyched about this because I ve gone on rants before about how way too many young adults books try to over simplify and over sanitize their content to make it kid friendly when we live in a world that really isn t kid friendly and kids are going to look for content they relate toIn that sense SPIN is the perfect book because it has a story to tell and it doesn t try to censor anything or dumb anything down SPIN is a young adult murder mystery A young black deejay named Paris Secord stage name DJ ParSec was found dead on her turntables by her ex friends and ex business partners Fuze her social media consultant and Kya her tech galFuze and Kya want to find out who killed DJ ParSec Not just because she used to be their friend but because 1 they re suspects in the murder and they want to clear their names and their reputations and 2 ParSec had some super obsessed super cray cray fans called DarkNation who will do anything to serve their leader Anything EepThe narrative style is pretty breezy Kya and Fuze have alternating POVs and sprinkled in are some of Paris s leading up to the night where she died I never really knew who dunnit until the end and I thought the grand reveal was well mostly pretty good I guess I ve read too many twisted thrillers I expect everything to be as disturbing as the inner workings of my own mind I guessOne thing I loved about SPIN is the rep This is not diversity for diversity s sake It s an excellent murder mystery with diverse rep It has a lot of great fabulous about Black Lives Matter and black culture and black stereotypes and what it means to be black enough but the characters blackness is not the focus of the story All of the characters are fully fleshed out and they re flawed three dimensional beings I liked all three narratives even if I didn t always like them as peopleHonestly if you like mystery thrillers and you want to read a diverse book that sets the bar super high SPIN is a great pick I was given this book as a gift and I might not have read it because of that cutesy rainbow cover and the cheesy Goosebumps esue blurb on the cover but it s surprisingly dark and disturbing for a YA book and I mean that in the best possible way Reader beware you re in for a rather frightful experience and what is also legally distinct from the Goosebumps catchphrase 35 to 4 stars
