Book Review - Poison Ivy: Thorns

Poison Ivy: Thorns

About the Book
New York Times bestselling author of The DUFF Kody Keplinger and artist Sara Kipin reimagine an iconic DC antihero with a gothic-horror twist.

There's something unusual about Pamela Isley--the girl who hides behind her bright red hair. The girl who won't let anyone inside to see what's lurking behind the curtains. The girl who goes to extreme lengths to care for a few plants. Pamela Isley doesn't trust other people, especially men. They always want something from her that she's not willing to give.

When cute goth girl Alice Oh comes into Pamela's life after an accident at the local park, she makes her feel like pulling back the curtains and letting the sunshine in. But there are dark secrets deep within the Isley house. Secrets Pamela's father has warned must remain hidden. Secrets that could turn deadly and destroy the one person who ever cared about Pamela, or as her mom preferred to call her...Ivy.

Will Pamela open herself up to the possibilities of love, or will she forever be transformed by the thorny vines of revenge?

My Take on the Book
This was a great book with a great story. It is a fresh take on the character of Poison Ivy and I love how well the author has done to explore all aspects of the characters. You learn about Pamela's secrets, but also why she surrounds herself with plants. There is a reason behind the love she shares with these plants which says a lot about her as an individual. The book explores Poison Ivy and makes her the villain that she becomes. The book is a great backstory that any fan of Poison Ivy will love.
