#Review of The Stellow Project by Shari Becker

When a killer storm unexpectedly hits Manhattan, seventeen-year-old Lilah Stellow’s dad insists that she and her younger sister, Flori, take refuge at their cabin in the mountains. But instead of joining them with the experimental drug that keeps Lilah alive, he disappears just as news reports name him as a prime suspect in an act of ecoterrorism.

As days pass without her medicine, Lilah finds herself teetering on the edge, caring for her sister, and growing increasingly certain they’re being watched. In her search for answers, Lilah is thrown into the center of a mystery involving an off-the-grid research facility and finds herself drawn in by Daniel, an intriguing boy who is the son of the lead scientist. As she dares to seek answers, Lilah slowly realizes that even the best intentions can go horribly wrong.
 
 About the Author
Shari Becker was born in Montreal, Quebec, and grew up speaking both English and French. As a child, she spent her summers in the Adirondack Mountains catching fireflies, minnows, and toads. After completing a master’s degree at New York University, Becker worked for Nickelodeon, Disney-owned companies, and an Emmy Award–winning puppeteer. She is the author of two picture books, including the Charlotte Zolotow Award–honored and Junior Library Guild–selected Maxwell’s Mountain. She now lives in Brookline, Massachusetts, with her husband, two daughters, and their dog.


For this one the pacing was a little off and well it really killed the suspense that this book should have had.  The story was somewhat twisty, the writing was pretty good, and the characters were ok.  But for me the story suspense was just kind meh. 

The romance etc was on par with what you would expect from a YA. But the ending was just another thing gone wrong.  

 Go Into This One Knowing 
no suspense, bad ending, nothing new for the YA reader
