Reviews

Simultaneously terrifying, hilarious, and action-packed, SWEET is a wild ride that holds up a warped mirror to our society. I loved it from the first line to the last. "Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of Legend and The Young Elites"

Laybourne's fictional world highlights themes of friendship, the culture of celebrity, and addiction...A finely knit narrative in which romance pairs perfectly (somehow) with societal horror. Jennifer Prince, Buncombe County Public Libraries, NC, "School Library Journal"

Laybourne's masterful novel opens as a comical potential romance, becomes suspenseful, then horrific, and ends as a gripping action-adventure survival story sure to enthrall readers ... The book is recommended as required summer reading. "VOYA, Starred Review"

Combining mystery with a bit of romance and a peek into Hollywood's obsession with being thin, Laybourne creates an interesting commentary on society's addiction to weight loss and diets. "Booklist"

While maintaining an exciting, face-paced, terrifying narrative, Laybourne manages to weave in details that highlight friendship, the culture of celebrity and addiction. "Asheville Citizen-Times"

Laybourne delivers a candy-coated horror novel that alternates between increasingly violent scenes and Laurel and Tom's poignant romance. "Publishers Weekly""
