I received a copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
Title: The Intergalactic Adventures of Queen Bea
Author: Jeanne Gransee Barker
Published: January 26, 2015 by self-published
Everything Bea had ever known was a lie. Now she must find the courage to face the truth and save not only herself — but an entire planet.
At almost 15, late-bloomer Bea Parker has just discovered that her aunt, uncle and cousins—the only family she’s ever known—aren’t actually related to her and don’t know anything about her birth parents. A strange, high-tech device shows up in her room in the middle of the night with a note promising answers about her shadowed past. The only person she can turn to for help is Calvin, school genius—and total nerd. This alien technology leads Bea and Calvin on a heart-pounding adventure across lightyears leaving behind Earth, and everything she knows, to meet her destiny.
So……this was a DNF book. I felt soooo bad but I don’t know. I just couldn’t get into it. By the middle of the book which is where I stopped nothing really has happened. Bea was annoying and took most of the time just trying to figure out what to do with that stupid box and even then nothing really happened. The other POV was good but it was just sooooooo slow. I couldn’t connect with Bea at all and I think that’s why it went downhill and the slow pace. It sounded like such a great book but the slow pace and the character of annoying, woe is me Bea didn’t quite make me want to finish the book. Again, sorry!
Do any of you feel bad when DNFing a book? What is your protocol when you DNF a book? Do you DNF a review book? This will be my first one..so I guess I just feel super bad about it.
