Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Set in an alternate reality where Hitler has supreme reign of the world, the resistance can only dream of taking him down till Yael strolls in. Yael is concentration camp survivor and genetic experiment. She has the ability to change into whomever she pleases. With the resistance depending on her, She enters a renown motorcycle race, masquerading as last year's previous and only female victor, Adele Wolfe. The goal: Assassinate Hitler at all costs.
She soon finds out that learning about a person and being a person are two different things, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. So, no toodaloo motherfucker after all. Sorry Yael, you have a heart.
This book was hard to rate. It was interesting, but just not my particular cup of tea. It's sad, to be sure. Yael uses the memories and lessons of those who have left her to get through the race and stride to come out on top.
The writing was incredibly well done and the flow just right. Beautiful phrases and vivid details was the only thing that kept me going until about half way...because I am a writing whore. So sue me. Around half way it finally started to pick up and competition got vicious. This is where I really felt like it was worth the read. Nothing goes as Yael plans and it'll leave you on the edge of your seat. Especially the end. JUST WOW. Can you say PLOT TWIST? Because Ryan Graudin definitely can.
Can't wait for Blood by Blood to come out!!
