The ReplacementIth his crush Tate But when Tate's baby sister goes missing Mackie is drawn irrevocably into the underworld of Gentry known as Mayhem He must face the dark creatures of the Slag Heaps and find his rightful place in our world or thei While reading this I felt like I was in a dark funk and that's because Mackie Doyle has been in this kind of funk for almost his whole life He has never felt like he belongs because he's just a replacement A replacement that has to keep that a secret at all cost but that can't last for long can it? His secret is jeoparized when Tate's little sister is thought to be dead but Tate doesn't believe that and presses Mackie to give her some answers How can he do that though when he doesn't even know what he really is himself?The relationships that Mackie has are the strongest part of the book My favorite one being Mackie's relationship with his sister Emma but his friends also were top notch What also was done well was the feel of the oppressive cloud that Gentry has over it's head You can tell the secrets are being buried but no matter how hard the people try the secrets bubble up to the surface again Now I wasn't feeling the chemistry between Mackie and Tate at first I kept wondering why Mackie even liked her but as the story progresses the romance between them does get better Then there is this scene where the ugly things undergound play a concert and I'm assuming you were suppose to feel the music and just how great it was I guess I'm not that intuitive because I tried but I couldn't get it All I kept thinking was Ok so they play really good and Those are little irks though because I could understand Mackie He tries so hard to be normal and aches to be like everyone else but he knows deep down he won't be able to do that Along the way he comes to learn that people do actually love him despite and because of what he isThe cover is very fitting to the book and I think it's interesting how the author put old superstitions into pratical ways it would hurt a person like Mackie I'm not sure but it looks like there might be a series Either way the story can stand on it's own Just so people will know there is teen drinking and some profanity Get lost in the world of ugly things but coming out you might realize maybe just maybe they aren't as ugly as they seem
