Claire Kann
Publication date: June 8th 2021
Genres: Contemporary, Mystery, Young Adult

From the author of Let’s Talk About Love and If It Makes You Happy, this exuberant YA Novel follows six teens locked together in a mansion, contending for a life-changing cash prize in a competition run by a reclusive heiress. 

Everyone thinks they know Jewel Van Hanen. Heiress turned actress turned social media darling who created the massively popular video-sharing app, Golden Rule.  

After mysteriously disappearing for a year, Jewel makes her dramatic return with an announcement: she has chosen a few lucky Golden Rule users to spend an unforgettable weekend at her private estate. But once they arrive, Jewel ingeniously flips the script: the guests are now players in an elaborate estate-wide game. And she’s tailored every challenge and obstacle to test whether they have what it takes to win–at any cost.  

Told from the perspective of three dazzling players–Nicole: the new queen of Golden Rule; Luna: Jewel’s biggest fan; and Stella: a brilliant outsider–this novel will charm its way into your heart and keep you guessing how it all ends because money isn’t the only thing at stake.

My Review:

Jewel Van Hanen inherited a small fortune so she decided to create an app called the Golden Rule which is a video sharing app. Jewel has had the app for ten years and this is going to be her last year.

Each year Jewel picks people from the app's social media to spend a weekend at her home where they compete in a contest to win a million dollars. The contestants are allowed to bring a partner with them on their weekend but they have to share the million dollars with their partner.

The Marvelous is told from three of the character's points of view. The Marvelous is filled with mystery from the first page which kept me guessing as to how it was all going to turn out in the end. The Marvelous is a very intense and suspenseful filled story that will keep you guessing from beginning to end just trying to figure it all out.

As I followed the characters on their quest and playing Jewel’s games I tried to guess the answers right along with the characters but let me tell you The Marvelous really likes to hold on to its secrets causing you to race to the end looking for the answers through out the whole story.

With all its test and challenges The Marvelous reminded me of Divergent, The Hunger Games, and a little bit of Escape Room. The Marvelous had some great characters that fits in with the story very well.

While I was reading The Marvelous it was more like I was watching a movie as I could see it all playing out in my head as if I was right there with all the characters trying to guess what was going on as well. Wondering who this Jewell person really was and what was her whole idea for wanting to pull something off like this. What were her intentions for all of it?

If you are looking for a bit of mystery then look no further as I do believe that The Marvelous just maybe what you are looking for. So one-click your copy of The Marvelous today for a very suspenseful adventure!
