I love the cover of this book. It's an interesting tween tale that will attract boys but reads like a YA novel at times. If Jared had been older, it could have been a crossover. I like the ghosts and the Civil War history.

I LOVED the battle of the sexes plot. The flirty banter between the duo sizzles in this sporty winter tale. The romance stands out, but the secondary plots of friendship, insecurities, fears, and limits really ring true. Plus the title and the cover are both eye catching.

Trella is a scrub – but she’s not your average scrub. She has one friend and prefers to spend her time in the pipes rather than with the overcrowded living quarters of the other scrubs. They’re forced to clean the Inside for the Uppers. Trella doesn’t know much about the world, but when her friend comes to her and says there’s someone who wants to meet her, she’s suspicious. What she discovers is something she never imagined. Unknowingly, she starts a revolution. Now, people who once scorned her are helping her complete tasks, steal food, and giving her valuable information, all for the hopes of a better life. Everyone wants to know what’s on the Outside. Everywhere Trella goes, danger follows. The Pop Cops have captured her best friend. He’s sentenced to die if she doesn’t get to him in time. They’re watching her every move and questioning her acquaintances. Plus, she doesn’t know who to trust. She’s going by her instincts, but the last time a rebellion occurred, the leaders were betrayed. Trella’s hoping she trusts the right people and, with time running out, hoping that they find something that makes all their sacrifices worthwhile.
I reviewed this one for www.teensreadtoo.com
where I gave it a:
Inside Out is an edge-of-your-seat science fiction action adventure ride filled with twists and turns you’ll never see coming. Maria V. Snyder has quickly become a favorite author of mine. I love her Glass series and her Study series. I can’t wait to see what she and Trella have in store for us in the next book of this series.

A cute tale that made me crave chocolate croissants and other goodies. Polly is sweet, funny, and hopelessly out of touch with her world, which only makes her more lovable. A great novel for tween girls or anyone who loves matchmaking!

I *Love* this series, but couldn't believe the ending of the book - proving that friendship means more than boys in an odd sort of way. Waiting for Rival's Revenge to find out what happens next...

The first book in a new tween series mention Myracles's characters from her other popular series TTYL. Luv Ya Bunches reads as a younger version of that series and will contain three more books. It's a very cute book - with IM chat and mini screenplays included. Tweens will love this one, I sure did!

I know, I'm late reading this one as everyone talked about it months ago, but that how it goes. A dark chilling alluring tale with demons galore and a huge twist at the end of the tale. I'm interested in seeing where the next book will take us.
