My Review:

Angel and Skip are held up by a group of thugs. Before they take a breath, their friend, Pade, hands them a suitcase full of money and tells them to run. Unsure what to make of it all, they head to Angel’s house. There, they hide out in her bedroom and listen at the door as two men in suits talk to Angel’s parents. Once the suits are gone, Angel’s dad finds her and Skip and gives the two teens a direct order: run, don’t think. They take his advice and thus the adventure for these two teens begins. On the run and heading north with only each other and a huge amount of money, they quickly realize there’s two parties following them. One is a set of government agents and the other is something straight out of a horror flick. Just when Angel thinks she has a handle on the situation, she realizes her whole life has been a lie. In order to save Skip’s life, she’ll have to become the one thing she detests: a monster. Can she come to grips with her new reality or has she bitten off more than she can handle?

Run, Don’t Think is a brilliant paranormal adventure I couldn’t put down. Angel and Skip are a pair of runaways but it’s not because they’re reckless and in love. They’re on the run from something dark and sinister. Angel is not your run of the mill heroine and that is what appealed to me. I call her an antihero but there’s something about her I relate to. The romance between Angel and Skip is sweet yet very realistic. If you’re a fan of paranormal and young adult with plenty of adventure, you have to read Run, Don’t Think. I can’t wait to read the next installment. Highly recommend!

Author Biography:

C.C. Bolick grew up in south Alabama, where she’s happy to still reside. She’s an engineer by day and a writer by night—too bad she could never do one without the other.

Camping, fishing… she loves the outdoors and the warm Alabama weather. For years she thought up stories to write and finally started putting them on paperback in 2006. If you hear her talking with no one to answer, don’t think she’s crazy. Since talking through her stories works best, a library is her worst place to write… even though it’s her favorite!

C.C. loves to mix sci-fi and paranormal—throw in a little romance and adventure and you’ve got her kind of story. She’s written a dozen books including the Leftover Girl series, The Agency series, and The Fear Chronicles.
