Rebel Heart

Rebel heart is a truly uniquely written story. As the author notes in the premise, this book is clearly a book about young people and for young people. To that end, Warren has created a masterpiece of a book for generation Z. Complete with relatable characters and poignant issues for today’s generation this book deserves to be a major hit among youth today. Filled with hashtags and an expert use of social media references and speech patterns this book is undeniably designed for younger generations and yet there is a core human element that I believe will resonate with just about anyone. Warren’s talent as a writer is to be able to write on a level that truly reaches anyone, I could not get enough of this book and can’t wait to see what else Warren comes up with!

REBEL HEART is an exceptional young adult novel. I was deeply impressed by how mature Audrey is and how she is able to handle the chaos that is disrupting her world. I caught myself more than once comparing her to Nancy Drew, a beloved character of times past. Michael HH Warren is a very talented author. I am so impressed that he centered his characters on the Post-Millennial Generation. I feel this age group is at a very fragile point of their life and to be able to find well developed literary books that compliment this generation is a wonderful addition to the literary world. I feel this book would be an excellent offering in libraries across the United States for it presents a positive message that no matter how difficult life is, there is hope around the corner.

Once I started this book, it was difficult to put down and I read it in two sittings. Audrey is a very responsible and mature 16-year-old. She has to be. She lives with her Uncle Harold, the mayor, and her cousin Madison, who is more like a sister to her. Their twin mothers are both deceased. In the story, Uncle Harold has been arrested for suspected fraud and Audrey and Madison are living alone in the large mansion with the support of the trusted staff and their Grandmother who spends a lot of time there. Audrey suspects that something bigger is going on in their small town and she is determined to get to the bottom of it with the help of her new friend, a young journalist, Ryan. This cozy mystery keeps you guessing and I found myself completely drawn into the story to find out what would happen next. Well worth the read! And I look forward to the second book in the series.

Lies, power, corruption and greed surround the little town of Cherry Creek. When her own uncle, the mayor of Cherry Creek is indicted for his alleged part, his niece 16 year-old Audrey Birkeland is determined to find out the truth. When Uncle Harald’s own lawyer’s daughter, Bella who is also Audrey’s cousin’s best friend is kidnapped, Audrey finds out the scandal is more dangerous than she can imagine. Armed with only her wits, her cousin Madison and a young journalist Ryan Hunter she sets out to do what she feels the police aren’t doing to help her uncle and to find Bella.

What an outstanding novel! Written for teens or the Generation Z age group, this mystery, suspense is so powerfully exciting that even this Baby Boomer was thoroughly captivated. As a huge fan of mysteries, I found I couldn’t put it down; I just had to know how this book would end. I really loved how there was more to Grandma than anyone ever knew. Michael is an amazing writer, who doesn’t get caught up in the details, but allows the suspense to build keeping the reader engaged. I would definitely recommend for teens, however, there is more than enough here for mystery lovers of all ages. I would love to see a series develop from this group of teenage mystery-solving sleuths led by Audrey.

Rebel Heart

Clever teenagers solve a small-town crime that leads to the exposure of an entire ruling family. Who doesn’t love seeing the greedy get their just desserts? Colorful characters wander through a plot that directly leads to retribution. I won’t give away the surprise twists at the end. The reader is grateful that the youth never get hurt although there is some unrealized potential. The story is designed for Generation Z, the successors to the Millennials. It is their time to shine and here we have a simple tale of persistence and discovery.
