    Fate & ‘What If’… Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick & Suzanne Young Blog Tour

    Just Like Fate by Cat Patrick & Suzanne Young concentrates on fate and the ‘what if’ people can think when they make one choice over another. I loved the book for this and it got me thinking about my own ‘what if’s in my life and my feelings towards fate. I don’t want to believe in fate, I don’t want to think that our whole life is mapped out in front of us and we have no say in the decisions we make. I loved Just Like Fate because it showed certain things that relate to my feelings towards fate and it gave us a ‘what if’ option. There have…

    Just Like Fate – Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young

    “There are exactly sixteen minutes left in math class when there’s a faint double knock on the classroom door, and we all perk up. Through the window I can see the office assistant with the frizzy hair standing timidly, like she’s afraid of even herself.” With a knock on the door of her classroom Caroline Cabot’s life turns upside down.

    The Originals – Cat Patrick

    “My part is first half.  I go to student government, chemistry, trigonometry, psychology, and history at school, the do the rest of the day at home. I maintain that Mom was in a mood when she made the assignments this year – math and science are definitely not my best subjects.” Lizzie, Ella and Betsy live like sisters in their home, to look at them you would think they were sisters, but to the outside world they are just one person – Elizabeth – and they split the day between them. This is because in reality they are clones, they shouldn’t even exist, but they do and they are living,…

    Revived – Cat Patrick

    “I’m flattened and thrashing on the sun-warmed track next to the football field, lying on what looks like asphalt but what I realise, now that I’m down here, is actually that fake spongy stuff. It reeks like it was just installed/ There’s a woman kneeling beside my right shoulder, shouting into a cellphone.” Daisy has died, five times, each time she has died she has been Revived. Revive is a drug, currently in its testing phase, which brings people back after they have died. It has its imitations and every time Daisy dies her and her guardians have to move away and start a new life. When the latest Revive…
