Review: Life on Hold by Karen McQuestion

Life on Hold


Fifteen-year-old Rae Maddox just wants to stay in one place like everyone else, but there’s no chance of that happening—not with a free-spirited mother who thrives on cross-country moves. When the two of them land in Wisconsin sophomore year, things are off to a great start: her mom promises they’ll stay until graduation, Rae makes two good friends and finally gets a chance at love. Her newfound happiness is jeopardized when the vice-principal at the high school pairs her with Allison Daly, a new girl with a bad attitude. As Allison’s secrets unravel, and Rae’s mother gets involved, Rae is forced to take charge of her own life or risk losing everything important to her.


McQuestion knows how to write a novel that captures your attention and keeps you interested from cover to cover.  She is a versatile author since she writes both YA and adult fiction.  In LIFE ON HOLD she writes from a 15 year old's perspective and takes you on a journey with Rae who is used to not staying put too long.  When she gets to Wisconsin that all changes and Rae finally feels at home.  In this quick novel you will become immersed in the story and enjoy seeing the characters grow and mature.  McQuestion never disappoints and I would recommend this book to both teens and adults.  4 stars.
