Review: Valiant by Holly Black

Saturday, January 25, 2014
Why I chose this book:
I originally read this book as a freshman in high school (I am a college graduate now), and I decided to give this series a reread, considering all the growing up I have done over the past nearly decade. I remember not truly enjoy this book; and I will now say that even back then my tastes were still good, because very little changed in my opinion of this novel.

When seventeen-year-old Valerie runs away to New York City, she's trying to escape a life that has utterly betrayed her. Sporting a new identity, she takes up with a gang of squatters who live in the city's labyrinthine subway system. 

But there's something eerily beguiling about Val's new friends. 
And when one talks Val into tracking down the lair of a mysterious creature with whom they are all involved, Val finds herself torn between her newfound affection for an honorable monster and her fear of what her new friends are becoming. (Goodreads)
