Review: Hillari's Head by Tim Stutler
Hillari's Head by Tim Stutler 4/5
The writing was superb, the author did a great job with Kristina's character she felt very real and I really liked her. I'm always surprised when a male author creates such a realistic female character that I really connect with, Stutler must of done some research on female protagonist because Kristina was expertly developed. The story line was so original I loved the twists and I didn't see the end coming at all, Hillari's Head was a real page turner, I couldn't put it down until the very end.
I actually think i'm going to read this book again in a couple of years, it was really touching and will stay with me for awhile. The relationship between Kristina and Duck was great, he was a great character and gave Kristina more layers. I found the way that it slowly became apparent to Kristina that she wasn't as over her past as she thought very moving. I know what its like to think your past something just to have it reappear and realize it had never really gone in the first place. Kristina was a fighter, she seemed pretty fragile and vulnerable for most of the book but as we learn more about her it comes to light that she is stronger than even she knows, I like the way she comes to realize that at the end. I thought the ending was brilliant, I like the fact the author forwent the typical route for the books closing. It made the book more original and memorable to me. Hillari's Head is a highly enjoyable read, I won't easily forget. I really recommend it for anyone who loves a good original story line.
