I had been wanting to read Becoming Nikki for a long time…ever since I saw the author’s interview on Homeschooled Authors. The plot intrigued me, as did the fact that the book was about sibling relationships.
This book totally took me by surprise.
I was completely riveted by this book from the first page. The entire plot was so well executed and realistic.
I loved the characters…well, except for the ones I didn’t like. But I’m pretty sure those ones were supposed to be disliked.
My only gripe is that I wish Nikki and Alec’s dad had been a more significant part of the story.
It was amazing. Absolutely unheard of for a debut novel.
Sometimes, it was hard to understand what the characters were trying to say. Elliot used real-life lingo/slang, which made it sometimes hard to comprehend. But, it is how most people talk these days, I had just never seen it written on paper.
Absolutely couldn’t put it down, it was so good. I had a day off and read the book in about six hours. I wish it had been longer.
