    1. Full disclosure I read to page 200, skimmed to from there to page 327, then read till the end If you dislike it when reviewers don t finish books before embarking on a review, then I m about to really upset you.In a World Just Right had a really cool premise a teen who can create worlds with his mind Heck, yeah Sci Fi Count me in on this road trip into Awesomeville Then I realized that he created a world specifically to be with a girl that he couldn t be with in the real world and my enthusiasm [...]

    2. Actual Rating 3.5 starsLight fantasies aren t usually my thing, since I m all for hardcore world building and all that, but surprisingly, In a World Just Right was an enjoyable read Reminiscent of Kasie West s Pivot Point, romance lovers will surely enjoy this one.Honestly, I was expecting this to be a detail heavy book that focused on the parallel universe aspect, but that definitely wasn t the case In fact, this book read like a realistic fiction novel than a fantasy which is totally fine by [...]

    3. I was fortunate to read an ARC of Jen Brooks s stunning debut YA novel I guarantee that every reader, every person alive, at one time or another has wished for the ability that the main character in this book has IN A WORLD JUST RIGHT centers on Jonathan, a teenage boy who can make worlds better than the one he lives in What makes his fantasy world better Kylie, the girl he s always pined for That s it I was sold on the story from the concept alone But then I read the first page Jen Brooks s wri [...]

    4. Thank you Edelweiss for providing me a free DRC in exchange for an honest reviewI was really looking forward to this book So much so that it was on my Most Anticipated Reads of 2015 list When I was approved for a DRC I was both wary and insanely optimistic, but when I actually sat down and read the book, my expectations kindaummeted In a World Just Right revolves around Jonathan, a boy who can make worlds That s what got me hooked on the book, the fact that this guy can create worlds where anyth [...]

    5. Read an ARC what an amazing book After a horrible plane accident, the MC Jonathan finds he can escape into a fantasy world where the girl of his dreams is his girlfriend When his real world and his alternate world begin to mingle, Jonathan must make some hard choices about his life and what he holds dear This books absorbs you from page one and keeps you reading to the end I cheered for Jonathan s victories, and mourned his losses So well written in a voice that manages to be both easy to read a [...]

    6. Author Jen Brooks has broken the speculative fiction YA mold with In a World Just Right Jonathan Aubrey is a World Maker, creating whole universes with just the power of his imagination Disconnected from the real world by personal tragedy, Jonathan chooses to live in his created world as much as possible, isolating himself from the real world.What we find when we open the book is a lonely boy straddling two worlds the real one where he imagines himself invisible, a loner and a created one, calle [...]

    7. Huge thanks to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book via Edelweiss in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.Jonathan Aubrey is a world maker Basically he can make any world he wants This includes, but not limited to, a world where fairies or aliens exist, a world where everything is medieval, or a would that is related to a dream he had Heck, he could create Narnia if he felt like it I m pretty sure if I was a world maker I would create a world where Willy Wonka s Chocolate [...]

    8. Intro Ok I m having one of those moments where I m thinking to myself I can t possibly do this book justice with a review, so could I just insert some GIFS into my review and call it a day But I won t Because as big and complicated as my feelings are for this remarkable book, I want all of you to read it And I think the only way to truly do that, is to not just tell you that you should buy this book, but to give you compelling reasons to do so So read on Things that worked CharacterizationsFrom [...]

    9. Every few years you read a book that just won t let go You finish it and you can t clear your head It won t let go of your imagination, your senses, your heart The characters won t budge and you can t scrape off the emotional residue to make room for whatever you try to read next This is one of those books I could go on about the books and movies it reminds me of, but that might give too much away It is really no one thing Just when you think it s going to be THIS it changes into THAT, and the e [...]

    10. Oh, wow I loved this book The ending caught me entirely by surprise, in a good way Highly recommended Thanks for sending it out on the ARC tour, Jen.

    11. I wanted to read In a World Just Right because I like the premise of the alternate universes Turns out there is the emotional aspect with a good portion of his family deceased in the accident that left him in a coma as a kid When he woke up, that is when his ability to make the other worlds emerged His current world that he visits is based on Kylie, the girl he has a crush on and it soon turns out that that world and the real world gets confused I like Jonathan It is nice these days to get a mal [...]

    12. More reviews at Mrs ReaderPantsVIEW I m just going to say it right nowis book deserves attention I won t be surprised to see it on 2015 Best of booklists or even the Choice Awards in December In A World Just Right is well written, suspenseful, emotional, and beautiful Jonathan is a sympathetic character right from the start he s a brilliant but scarred loner who experienced unimaginable tragedy at a very young age I don t want to say much about this book out of fear of giving away too much While [...]

    13. An interesting concept that turned out to be a great story, In a World Just Right was a fantastic YA read With the cool world builder element and a romance that went across worlds, this book was definitely wonderful and I really liked it.Johnathon was a really likable character He had a lot of changes throughout the book with the worlds he visited and a shocker of a secret that totally changed my perception of him Throughout all that, though, he was a kind and sweet guy who was genuinely adorabl [...]

    14. Interesting I m not usually a big fan of parallel universe books To me they fall, along with books with jumpy time lines and time travel, in the non linear category of books that never allow me to become fully absorbed in the story.I think the reason that the non linear aspect of IaWJR worked for me was that the book did a good job of making sure I knew which world I was in It also felt philosophical than scientific it wasn t a book about physics, but about grief and memory and longing.The basi [...]

    15. I had the pleasure of reading an advanced copy of IAWJR, and quite simply, I was wowed The book s pitch there is a boy who has been hurt, and he has the ability to escape his reality and create new worlds where he can have whatever he wants But that pitch hides an enviably complex and richly emotional tale of love, loss and hope exploring what lengths we will go to protect ourselves, and just how painful the process of forgiveness and acceptance can be.I loved the book s MC Jonathan, the author [...]

    16. I was able to read an ARC of Jen s IN A WORLD JUST RIGHT as a member of the Fearless Fifteeners and Class of 2k15 In addition to being a blend of fantasy, contemporary, and romance, Jen s debut novel is also a bit of a mystery at least it was for me As I read, I definitely got the feeling that something wasn t quite right, that Jen was holding back on a significant plot point, but I couldn t figure it out Sure enough, something revealed late in the story adds a whole new layer to the narrative I [...]

    17. I had the opportunity to read an ARC of this fabulous book and I could not put it down Full of unexpected twists and turns, this is definitely one novel to keep on your radar when it publishes in 2015

    18. In a World Just Right is an incredible debut novel, and likely a harbinger of great things to come from Jen Brooks Brooks takes a simple yet intriguing premise a teenage boy with the ability to create alternate realities and executes it in a smart and entertaining way If I had an ability to create alternate worlds, I would go nuts I d go to Hogwarts, be a millionaire, visit Oz, and so on Jonathan, on the other hand, uses his ability to create a version of reality where his crush is his girlfrien [...]

    19. My thanks to Simon Schuster Point of View Single Jonathan Writing First Person Present TenseSetting MassachusettsGenre Young Adult Fantasy I absolutely adored the cover, and if the book had ended before it reached page 200, I would have rate it at least 4 stars Well, it seems like I m the only not satisfied with this book, but what the heck, I just could find it interesting any view spoiler after Tess showed up hide spoiler So, I liked the book a lot at first first half of it was pretty nice in [...]

    20. It s just a line And evidence that you re a miracle Although I don t love everything about this story, I am choosing to take my own twist on the story and that has made me like it That s the fun of being a reader I can decide to like something even if I m not 100% biting off what the author is trying to give me.At the end of it all, and the reason I can reconcile that I liked this even if I had some concerns, is that I love the message I love the hope that there s That dreams and ideas can hol [...]

    21. This is possibly one of the most difficult reviews to write Partly because I did not want to finish the book for a long time, knowing that I will be hunting for another such a unique book to read and partly because I knew that there are no words to express the feelings the book evoked.I really wish all debut authors would write a first book like this.The characterisation is excellent, with a plot that just cannot go wrong The added poems greatly enhance joys and sorrows.The book has a great ente [...]

    22. I don t think I ve read another high concept YA that honors its own premise the way this book does Instead of using Jonathan s world building ability as a simple launching pad for the plot, Jen Brooks explores the implications of his power logistically, emotionally and philosophically Incredibly thoughtful and moving.

    23. I thought that the main character was a total creep and that the ending was very predictable I also felt like we should have gotten information on the world and plot It focused on the romance too much in my opinion

    24. Great take on wondering if what you create is better than the real thing A little wordy probably could have knocked off 50 pages of details about track meets But otherwise this is a great story.

    25. This review can also be found on A Thousand Lives Lived, check it out for reviews 4.5 star rating Since mid 2014, this book has been on my eye, and I must say that it s been one of my top most anticipated reads of the year Now that I ve gotten the amazing chance to read it early, I have to say that EVERYONE MUST READ THIS AS SOON AS IT S RELEASED You won t be disappointed, and to this moment after finishing it last night as I m writing this , I still have the chills running down my spine Of cou [...]

    26. In a World Just Right is a crazy ride of a book So many twists and turns Lots of emotions and plenty of amazing characters Even the other characters had their own personalities This is a contemporary book with a splash of, not so much supernatural, but magic I m not sure how to say it without saying too much.Jonathan is this really amazing and eccentric character His through process is both frightening and powerful He has one of the strongest personalities I think I have seen in a male protagoni [...]
