Lauren's Reviews

Lauren joined the Exodus staff in June 2013. She spent a large portion of time during high school volunteering for her local library, and as a result was exposed to a wide variety of fiction that the Exodus staff rarely encounters (or takes a close look at). Quite the intelligent and discerning young lady, we've been very pleased with her abilities and asked her to start writing reviews for us, especially focusing on modern juvenile and YA (young adult) fiction. Below are the fruits of her efforts.
