  2. This one had a lot of potential to be a solid contemporary mature YA story Breakfast Club esque, social media, some darkness and intrigue without being depressing BUT then the story goes somewhere WAY dark, but not until way toward the end and almost as an afterthought, although it was slightly foreshadowed throughout the book As the reveal approaches I was almost yelling DO NOT GO THERE Thanks to the publisher for providing me with an ARC for review.SPOILER BELOWHere s why it s not fair to read [...]


  3. This was a pretty good book It is really directed toward YA but it kept me interested and reading I ve actually been enjoying of James Patterson s YA novels lately than his adult books.


  4. Quick read if it was any longer it would have felt like it was dragging on because there was very little plot VERY LITTLE Most of the story was just setup and then in the last couple of pages there was a small reveal to resolve the story view spoiler I was kinda upset at how the authors just threw Sasha s rape storyline in there it seemed like they had to come up with a shocking secret for her but they didn t want to linger on it any , so they just went OH HER FATHER WAS RAPING HER BTW THE END h [...]


  5. Was the ending revelation really necessary I think not That was way too big of an issue to throw out at the very end of the book It made absolutely no sense to me and really killed the ending Overall, a good young adult book, until the end Very poor decision making on that one It was obvious that something was going on with Sasha and that we would eventually find out, but of all the things that could be the problem, that is what they picked It had nothing at all to do with what the rest of the b [...]


  6. 2 starsI picked this out because my mom likes James Patterson s books, but it was not an enjoyable mystery to me Maybe his adult books are better, who knows I m not a big mystery reader because I m very picky about what I like in the genre And this cemented that mediocre mystery read that I expect out of most mystery novels except for the classics The plot was mediocre, unsuspenseful, and predictable, and I could easily identify the plot structure There wasn t that feeling of suspense and instea [...]


  7. I ll give this book four stars if only because of Theo and Jude a terrific narrator and a terrific Stiles, and even better, a Stiles they actually, on the page, write as openly bi rather than leaving it ambiguous and up to our headcanons Sasha deserves mention too, because she s a very complicated character, much so than I tend to expect Patterson to deliver Though maybe that s his cowriter Emily Raymond s hand at work Overall, this story is a longer one than it should be, and a little repetiti [...]



  8. I received an ARC of this book for free through Giveaways.It s books like this that make me glad I m not in high school any I didn t even go to high school that long ago, but we didn t have all these social media issues like the ones in Expelled A crude photo of some students is posted on Theo s it says the MC s name is Will in the blurb, but in my ARC, it s Theo Twitter account, and because of the school s zero tolerance policy, Theo and the identified students in the picture are all expelled B [...]


  9. First of all, no matter what you may think of James Patterson, there s absolutely something to be said for a book you can read 200 pages of in an hour and not feel like it was utter fluff That s really cathartic The actual book suffers a bit from cover copy that could either be considered a spoiler or plain misleading, as well as taking too long to get to the meaty bits of the story Patterson and his co author are trying to cover some very heavy material in the subplots, and while it isn t poorl [...]


  10. Expelled is centered around a mystery and it has an unrelated twist at the end I predicted both of them after reading the first five chapters This must mean A I m a super sleuth.B James Patterson was trying to develop the protagonist as one who overlooks the obvious clues around him because he is too focused on himself.C This story and its characters are not very original.Unfortunately, I m leaning toward the latter Somehow this is the first book I ve read by James Patterson, and if this book is [...]


  11. This is my first James Patterson book, surprisingly enough I didn t really like the story, because I didn t feel like there was much to it It s not really as big a mystery as it s made out to be, and really, it s just Theo asking questions and realizing what was in front of him all along Then the last part with SashaI just didn t hink it was handled well or written well, honestly Kind of mediocre, which surprised me because I d always heard James Patterson was pretty good Three stars.





  12. I expected from a James Patterson book He should stick to his crime thrillers This was awful and the subject matter at the end is beyond offensive What kind of sick person even thinks to put that idea in the minds of teen readers Dad s everywhere should be offended Gross.



  13. Wow After I finished this book, I basically just sat for a few minutes reeling in all if the crazy plot twists that are sprinkled throughout this story I do have to admit, the beginning was good, but the ending killed it I was enjoying the book, and it s mystery, but it also seems like a lot of YA books have this kind of story line Then, somewhere in the middle, I felt like the story was going beyond and off is path It hooked us in the beginning, kind of lost us in the middle, and then went tota [...]


  14. No No Protagonist was dull and not developed Lots of big subject matter suicide abuse that was handled incredibly irresponsibly This book made me so mad.



  15. This book has fallen in my esteem since I finished it I probably would have rated it at like a 2 or 3 a week ago, but as I think about it and talk about it and continue to try to think through the story I just like it less and less as I find myself truly identifying my problems with it It s not the book it s marketed as that s the main thing I want the people reading this review to know It plays itself as this teamwork, group dynamic, high school mystery and it really isn t The marketing on the [...]


  16. I think that this book was good, but there were some times when it felt all over the place and was confusing The problem was interesting, and how they found out who the suspect was.


  17. EXPELLED is the brainchild of James Patterson and Emily Raymond, in which four teenagers, some guilty, some not, are kicked out of school following odd events In order to uncover the truth of the incident that abruptly ended his junior year and to prove his innocence, Theo convinces the group to make a documentary film What Theo ultimately finds will shock him, as the reality of the situation and the reason he was framed are much darker than he could have imagined The ending of EXPELLED serves u [...]


  18. While I m not a big fan of fast paced stories, this one was an enjoyable read You follow through the story of a boy wrongfully blamed for something he didn t do, and in turn gets expelled for it But from this turn of events, he gets to talk to the girl he s had a crush on for years, uncover secrets about his friends and peers that he wouldn t have found out if he hadn t been snooping around for the truth, and uncovers a scandal within the school that wrongfully accused him Really, it was a great [...]


  19. This was a pretty quick read and the plot was intriguing from the very first page As the book progressed, I found the story line and the mystery to become that much interesting There were twists and turns and many unexpected moments, which it made it very enjoyable The author did a good job of keeping the reader guessing as to who the true culprit was of posting the picture that ended Theo s high school career.However, the love story between Sasha and Theo was far too cliche and predictable TRI [...]


  20. My first James Patterson, believe it or not I listened to the audiobook narrated by Michael Crouch, who is always awesome and usually I toss in an extra star just for him The book held my attention, and I didn t hate the plot or the characters, really The reason this book only gets 3 stars is a the vocabulary and references used by the characters are unrealistic and irrelevant, even to the most intellectual of high school juniors I read a lot of YA books, and this felt disconnected from how teen [...]


  21. Have you ever read a book that you found yourself enjoying only to come to an ending that made you say, WTF Well, Expelled was one oft those books for me This review will probably get a bit spoilery, so if you try to avoid spoilers, you might want to skip reading this.The story focuses on Will, who was unjustly expelled from school for the rest of his Junior year for something he swears he didn t do After some investigating,, he finds 3 other students who were expelled for sketchy reasons as wel [...]


  22. UGH THIS BOOK REALLY DISAPPOINTED ME I had read One of us is lying and loved it I thought this would be a good fit because it has the same storylineBoy was I wrong The mystery wasn t even there It s like it was forgotten once Sasha came into the picture That was the most disappointing thing ever If I was looking for a romance book, I would have gotten one The characters were all terrible Parker was the jock who didn t want the dream That would be interesting if there was SUBSTANCE to him, but th [...]


  23. This book is all about secrets Everyone has something to hide, whether you like it or not, there are some things you can t tell others about But this book is also about coming face to face with your secrets, mustering the courage to confess your deepest fears to the ones who you re most afraid to lose Throughout this book, we see our protagonist undergoing a series of developments and maturing tremendously This book deals with the grey areas in our lives and I absolutely love how this book keeps [...]


  24. For a young adult book, this one s pretty dark it features revenge porn, sexual assault, incest and suicide the kinds of themes that most young adult authors are too scared to talk about.On one hand, I m glad that Patterson and Raymond have attempted to take these issues, but I m not fully convinced they did it the right way The story revolves around Theo Foster, a teenager who s secret Twitter account was hacked and used to post an explicit video, which got him and two other students expelled A [...]
