Review & Giveaway ~ Uncontrollable by S. R. Johannes ~ Book Tour



Book Summary


As 16-year-old Grace recovers from tragedy, her science class is chosen by Agent Sweeney at the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to help with research on the new "Red Wolf Reintroduction Program". 

While she’s excited about helping with the conservation of the endangered wolves, Grace knows this means being outdoors in the worst winter recorded, in a place she no longer feels comfortable. It also means working closely with Wyn (her ex) and his annoying girlfriend (Skyler), a girl whose idea of getting close to nature is picking silk plants and growing fake plants. 

After a couple of wolves show up dead, Grace almost quits. However, when a fellow project team member goes missing, Grace continues the assignment under a renewed suspicion that someone might be sabotaging the conservation program. She quietly begins to hunt for clues. 

Little does she know, she is being hunted too. 


My Review:
Uncontrollable continues with Grace's story, taking up where Untraceable left off.  Once again Grace has captivated me with her motivation, determination and inner strength.  I loved her just as much in this book as I did in Untraceable.  I do recommend reading Untraceable before reading Uncontrollable, as there is much that will make more sense if you know Grace's backstory.

 My interest was once again captured from the beginning.  The danger, mystery, hints of romance, humor and friendship made the story keep my interest to the end.  The new characters were introduced well, and the characters from the first novel (like Wynn) continued to grow on me throughout this story.  Though there were times when Wynn and Skylar were a bit annoying at times, but that was part of what made the story great - and did improve later in the book, at least with Wynn. 

I have to say, Uncontrollable is another well-written, amazing adventure by author S. R. Johannes.  Definitely recommended for older teens and Young Adults (and adults who pretend we are young - lol)
