    "I've always loved His Dark Materials. I would put The Golden Compass up there with Harry Potter on my list of books I couldn't put down as a kid. I have compared the story of this first book to being a cross between Harry Potter and The Odyssey. Lyra's journey to the "main event" takes up most of the content of the first entry in this series, and the journey is so, so fun."

    "Good book about young adults and their road trips; However there is more to that Crash into Me is focus on four individuals who all have one particular mindset and that is death. Wonderful book that you won't put down once you pick it up. Inspiring characters that find the support within each other to perhaps give life a chance. Would highly recommend."
