    1. 4/5 Stars!Summary:This book follows Lexy just as she is about to enter her senior year. But things get turned upside down. Her parents are making them move from Atlanta to Texas. Lexy is furious because she just got on the newspaper staff as editor and now that will be ripped out from underneath her. But there is a reason why they're moving and no one was prepared. Lexy and her family make it to Texas. Lexy is the 'new kid' and target of bullying. Can she find friends in her last year? And what [...]

    2. Eyeroll fest.Awkward pacing.Dialogue after dialogue after dialogue.Horrible love interest.Clueless Mary Sue MC (who thinks she's plain but get told she's the prettiest thing ever)Actually, everyone's a fucking Mary Sue.It makes you cringe.It made me cringe.And I hate cringing.I really do.(Hoo hoo hoo)A lot of "he/she was the prettiest/most beautiful person I've ever seen."Unsure if I'll leave a complete review.I'll leave this as it is for now.

    3. This review and more on Sab The Book EaterFun facts before reading my review: 1. I'm a religious person. I'm not overly zealous but I love my faith enough to keep practicing it until the day I die (bit dramatic there are we). Even if that's the case, I'm not the type who often reads books with religious undertones because I feel like some books can be a bit preachy. 2. I read this book from 7PM to 4AM STRAIGHT. I haven't done that. Ever.3. I think Ash is such a great name for the male lead. It's [...]

    4. The review was first up on For The Love of Fictional Worlds :)I received a digital copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.I got in touch with the author, Ms. Ross on IG (yes I love that platform. It is now more than half of my social life :P) and she couldn't be anymore sweeter. When we were discussing the idea of me reading and reviewing her book, she was more worried about the fact that if the book would be a good fit form. Now as an individual human (highly debated! I still I am an [...]

    5. This book came as a pleasant surprise. I didn't expect to get hooked so quickly but within the first couple pages, Ross had me. There is just something about this story that is so addictive that I just needed to read more. What was it that kept me reading? Here are some of the many answers:1. LexyThe main character is not the average teenager that one encounters in the popular vamp-books out today. Lexy is strong, willful and draws her own judgments when it concerns people, her future, her famil [...]

    6. This was an r2r that BLEW MY MIND!! "Oh My God" and "Wow" seem so insufficient!!When I picked up this book, it was mainly because it sounded interesting and I enjoy writing honest reviews. Everything about it was unexpected. I didn't expect it to suck me in from page one. I didn't expect Lexy to be unattractive and beautiful as well as intelligent and clueless. I also didn't expect the religious overtones. Aside from angels, religion in novelsually not my thing, but this book knocked my socks of [...]

    7. This book was simultaneously both the most heart-warming and most heart-wrenching novel that I have ever read. It is amazingly well written. There are descriptions beyond compare. At times I felt like I was holding the flower spoken of. This story manages to combine a will-they-won’t-they first love with one of the most catastrophic losses imaginable to create a high school experience that you feel you have lived not simply read about. There is a religious undercurrent throughout the entire st [...]

    9. Before I begin, I want to say thank you to the author for giving me this review copy! But please also know this does not effect my review in any way :)When I got contacted to review a book I was ecstatic! I love reading and reviewing and asking me to just makes me super, super happy for some reason! So Ms. Ross also sent me to a link to amazon where it was so I could read the description. I read it and the first thought that crossed my mind was Ok, sounding a bit cliche, but it looks interesting [...]

    10. I would like to thank the author for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review.I am glad I took the time to read this book. The characters frustrated me and I wanted to scream sometimes. But in the end there were a few good messages to be learned. One, being not to quick to judge, and two, forgiveness. This book is about Lexy. She finds out just before her senior year that her mom has cancer, and that they are moving to Texas so they are closer to treatments. She was going to be the e [...]

    11. Prodigal is a YA Romance with a Christianity slant, written by Rektok Ross. I read this as a R2R with We ♥ YA Books! As always, a special thank you to the mods and author for allowing me to participate.The Review:Prodigal was a sweet read and I found it inspiring and lovely. I really liked the message and I liked the realistic circumstances the characters find themselves in. This book had a Christianity theme to it and though Lexy is encouraged to read the Bible and find God, it wasn’t preac [...]

    12. It's Lexy Quinn's senior year in Georgia. She is to be the editor of the school paper, and has plans to go on to be a journalist after graduation. Suddenly, her family is moving to Texas and she has to start all over in a new high school, with no friends, no school paper, lost in a sea of strangeness, feeling more than a little sorry for herself. To make things even worse, Lexy's mom is sick with cancer and she isn't close with either her father or her older brother.When Lexy gets a chance to 't [...]

    13. “Prodigal” takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions! I read the entire book on a flight from New York to London over the Christmas break. At first I thought I would read a couple of chapters and then watch a movie, but I could not put it down for one second. The story was so enthralling that I didn’t even nap! Although I am not the target audience of the writer, I was able to thoroughly enjoy the plot and travel back in time to my high school years. The author makes it easy for you to fall [...]

    14. Once I started I couldn't put it down. It was a brilliant book with story lines that kept me hooked! I literally cried, laughed and cringed! The only thing that let it down for me was the religious aspect of the book but this is just my personal opinion and I do think that others will understand this and even like the inclusion of faith. Lexi the main character is your typical heroine, she is unpopular, clumsy and does not have much self esteem but she does have a certain likability about her an [...]

    15. I was really surprised by this book. I was expecting just a fun, typical "beach read" romance but this book was so much more. Prodigal is the story of a teenager, Lexy Quinn, who deals with typical problems -- she doesn't get along with her family well, her mom is sick, she is bullied in school by the "head cheerleader" and she falls for the "most popular guy in town." Yet this book, and Lexy, deal with all these problems in a truly original way and Ross writes the story in such a believable man [...]

    16. I really wasn't sure what to expect with this book, especially with a sheep on the cover. But don't let this cover fool you. This is a great read about faith, love and heartache. I really enjoyed the many character, though she cried a lot which is understandable. The only thing i kept wondering was when it was going to pick up more or when was she going to get a break and have a happy ending. Overall i really enjoyed this book and will definitely recommend this book to my friends. This book is g [...]

    17. I adore sheep. LOL I know what you are thinking. Sheep are sheep. But seriously, after you get to pet a lamb, you'll love sheep too. I have to admit that the first reason I even looked at this book is because there was a sheep on the cover. Boy am I glad that I followed my instinct and read the book. It was great. (By the way, no, I am not a sheep lady -- the sheep version of a cat lady. Just thought I'd clarify.)Prodigal by Rektok Ross really caught me off guard. First of all, because it wasn't [...]

    18. This review and many others can be found on my blog - Feed Your Fiction AddictionProdigal was a lovely surprise!! I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from this book. I knew from the title and the cute little sheep on the cover (from the Parable of the Lost Sheep) that this would be Christian fiction, but what I didn't know was that this is actually a really great YA contemporary romance as well. It was EXACTLY what I've been looking for - a Christian book that isn't preachy or cheesy and would [...]

    19. (This review can be found on my blog The (Mis)Adventures of a Twenty-Something Year Old Girl).Wowjust wow! The feels in this book were just wow! Prodigal by Rektok Ross has definitely become my favorite book this year. In fact, it may've become my favorite book ever, seriously. I had my reservations about this book being as it is Christian fiction. Although I am Christian, I don't like books that are too preachy because it's like they are preachy to the choir. However, this book was not preachy [...]

    20. This was an okay read for me, though nothing extraordinary. It had a good plot though in my opinion not the best writing style. For me it felt like the perfect read for a YA (Young Adult) beginner since it felt like a quick and easy read. I experienced it as easy to follow along in the story and easy on the details, though still having an interesting plot and character development."Dreams of witches on broomsticks with flowing chestnut locks danced in my head. True to his word, Cam and I met up [...]

    21. I was kindly provided an ebook version for free by the author. Review originally posted on my blog, PidginPea's Book Nook. I've been hearing good things about Prodigal, so when the author offered to let me read it, I jumped at the chance. And I'm so glad I did! Prodigal is a great story with a main character that is so relatable, I felt like I was reading about my own high school experience at some points.In some ways, this is a very standard YA book, and I mean that in the best possible way. [...]

    22. A very lovely read!I enjoyed this book every step of the way. I've never really been much into YA genre, but Rektok is one of the two authors that recently turned into a raving fan with this book.This is a story about a girl—Lexy—whose life was turned around by simply moving across states and changing schools in her final year. It wasn't hard to see that the laws that operated in her former life and environment were different than the ones in her new world, Texas. From being a girl who had o [...]

    23. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was a nice change from the usual coming of age/romance YA books. The author, Ross, knew that you can tell a wonderful, heartwarming love story without including sexual themes. This was the thing that I loved most about this book. Kudos to Ross for creating a book that is completely appropriate for all ages!This story was has some of the most relateable characters that I have come across recently. Lexy is an average teen trying to [...]

    24. Reaction:WowI'm speechless. If I could give 6 stars I would or maybe even 7. I started reading before bed saying I would just get it started. Needless to say its 9am and here I am. I need to get some sleep, but I will be back to write a proper review.Review:I can't believe the effect this book had on me. I was just going to read a few chapters before bed and I ended up staying up all night/morning to finish it. The story sucks you in. It was totally heart warming and heart wrenching all at the s [...]

    25. Overall: I am so in love with this jewel of a book. I'm extremely embarrassed to say that I was not expecting it to be so good. I'm completely speechless! I became so emotionally invested in this book and the characters There's something that really connected with me. It was like I was catching up with old friends. I seriously felt every emotion the characters felt. I read this book in about 4 hours without stopping. I finished at about 2 A.M. Monday morning. I could not stop, no matter how badl [...]

    26. Ultimately I would give this book a 4.5 stars I loved the undeniable attraction between lexy and ash and how her determination to follow her dreams are not wavered by anyone even those who are so close to her and believe her dreams are just dreams and she needs to pursue a real career. At first I was rooting for Brian and lexy considering how sweet he was to her even though she was the new girl and did not know anything about her ! But as the book progressed there was so much emotion and chemist [...]
