Book Review: Inescapable by Amy A. Batrol


by Amy Bartol

Price: $2.99


My name is Evie Claremont and this was to be the making of me–my freshman year of college. I’d been hoping that once I’d arrived on Crestwood’s campus, the nightmare that I’ve been having would go away. It hasn’t.

I may be an inexperienced seventeen-year-old, but I’m grounded…sane. I look for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he’s near, I feel an attraction to him–a magnetic kind of force pulling me towards him. I know what you’re thinking…that sounds fairly awesome. Yeah, it would be…if he liked me, but Reed acts as if I’m the worst thing that has ever happened to Crestwood…or him. But get this, for some reason every time I turn around he’s there, barging into my life.

What is the secret that he
’s keeping from me? I’m hoping that it’s anything but what I suspect: that he’s not exactly normal…and neither am I. So, maybe Crestwood won’t be the making of me, but it could be the breaking of me. I’ve been left to wonder if the dark future my dream is foretelling is…inescapable.

My Rating:


After reading some heart-breaking books, I just needed to take a moment from my book list and read something that was sweet and innocent. Which lead me to pick a YA Romance, a book with the innocence of first love.

Inescapable means that something is unable to be avoided or denied. 

But how does the title tie into the book? Is it talking about fate? Can we not avoid fate? What is the author trying to hint before you open the cover and start reading? 

In this book I read about a girl who was fighting to learn about who she was and what it meant to the people around her. I read about a girl who was stubborn and headstrong. She was changing into something she didn't understand. Her world was turn upside down and she didn't know who to trust. 

What would you do if everything you thought you knew was wrong?

About the Author:

 I live in Michigan with my husband and our two sons. My family is very supportive of my writing. When I’m writing, they often bring me the take-out menu so that I can call and order them dinner. They listen patiently when I talk about my characters like they’re real. They rarely roll their eyes when I tell them I’ll only be a second while I finish writing a chapter…and then they take off their coats. They ask me how the story is going when I surface after living for hours in a world of my own making. They have learned to accept my “writing uniform” consisting of a slightly unflattering pink fleece jacket, t-shirt, and black yoga pants. And they smile at my nerdy bookishness whenever I try to explain urban fantasy to them. In short, they get me, so they are perfect and I am blessed. Please visit me at my website:
