Blog Tour: Unstrung by @KendraHighley #review

Young Adult Sci Fi/Dystopian

Book One: Unstrung Series

Lexa Pate, seventeen-year-old thief extraordinaire, has burned a bridge or two in her life. You don't make a career out of stealing other people's property without making enemies.

When a risky job goes from bad to worse, Lexa and her adopted family find themselves on Precipice Corporation's hit list because they've accidentally stolen the wrong thing--plans for a new model of genetically-engineered super humans. Now every bounty hunter, cop on the take, and snitch in the city is after them.

Lexa's world crumbles around her as she fights to keep her family safe even as someone strolls out of her forgotten past. Quinn claims to know who Lexa really is, but can she trust a stranger she met while robbing his boss?

More importantly, does she really want to know what Quinn has to tell her?

Based on the fairy tale Pinocchio, UNSTRUNG takes you into a near future world where the lines between fake and real are blurred, all that's pristine isn't always innocent, and being a criminal isn't always wrong.


Kendra Highley has a real talent for bringing to life characters that a reader just connects with and roots for from the very beginning. I adored her Matt Archer series and was sad for it to end. I am beyond excited she has now brought to life Lexa Pate and her story. This is the beginning of a new series and Kendra does an amazing job of setting up the world, characters, and plot to allow for a continuation that will be sure to please. 

Another thing I love... retelling's of fairytales. This one is based on Pinocchio which I found to be unique and exciting. 

Kendra C. Highley lives in north Texas with her husband and two children. She also serves as staff to four self-important cats. This, according to the cats, is her most crucial job. She believes chocolate is a basic human right, running a 10k is harder than it sounds, and that everyone should learn to drive a stick shift. She loves monsters, vacations, baking and listening to bad electronica. If she's not writing, she's reading. If she's not writing or reading, she's likely a little cranky.
