Author: Melina Marchetta
Genre: YA Contemporary

In this lyrical, absorbing, award-winning novel, nothing is as it seems, and every clue leads to more questions.At age eleven, Taylor Markham was abandoned by her mother. At fourteen, she ran away from boarding school, only to be tracked down and brought back by a mysterious stranger. Now seventeen, Taylor's the reluctant leader of her school's underground community, whose annual territory war with the Townies and visiting Cadets has just begun. This year, though, the Cadets are led by Jonah Griggs, and Taylor can't avoid his intense gaze for long. To make matters worse, Hannah, the one adult Taylor trusts, has disappeared. But if Taylor can piece together the clues Hannah left behind, the truth she uncovers might not just settle her past, but also change her future.
Jellicoe Road is one of my favorite books ever! I read this in 2013 and still I can't forget this book. It's heartbreaking and raw and just so darn amazing. This is also the second review I've posted in this blog. I am yet to read another of Marchetta's works, but I expect they're all equally awesome. Here's the link to my review of Jellicoe Road if you guys want to check it out. :)
