    Note. My opinion of this book is very based on the hopes of a second book. If there is no second book then this is only worthy of 3.5 stars. Too many things currently unanswered. It was worthy of a 4.5 star journey but it has been 2 years and not even a whisper of a second book being worked on.This was a very well done book. A great debut novel from Emory Sharplin! The story quickly drew me in with the hard life of young Tucker. A young girl/women of 12 years, who was left as a baby on the steps [...]

    This was a pretty original idea and I was pleasantly surprised throughout the whole book. Ok, so a few of the concepts have been done before more than a few times, but this story was a recipe for success.This is not your usual rags-to-riches story.This story got off to an excellent start, although I was often confused as to what type of world this was - a lot of the time it felt like a medieval-type fantasy world, but then there'd be the mention of an elevator and I'd stare dumbly at the page tr [...]

    '“In the name of the King, halt!""In the name of your duty, catch me!”'A cross between Celine Kiernan's The Poison Throne, Tamora Pierce's Trickster's Choice and The Lord of the Rings, Scrap is an adventurous tale with enough magic, adventure, cussing, ballgowns, thievery, gypsies, poison and court intrigue to have you hooked from start to finish!Hellip, a village in the vast empire of the cruel King Ibis, holds more than brutal Blackcoats, poverty, bloodied scaffolds and misery. Tucked away [...]

  • Miranda

    I gave it a chance, but from the start I wasn't overly wild about the writing style. Overuse of exclamation points, an irritating main character who is ~oh so special~, and some pretty basic world building.But worst of all a flashback to a near rape scene that Tucker goes through, just to show off how awesome she is and how she isn't like her slutty prostitute friend Kally. Tucker chuckles at this memory of nearly being raped and fighting off her attacker at thirteen years old.Sorry, no. Dropped [...]

    I received this ARC via NetGallery for an honest review.I was a little skeptical when I started reading "Scrap" but over all I did like it. :)Since I'm a sucker for anything with fantasy and magic, my interest didn't take long to get peaked and I found myself in a world of the medieval era filled with magic, mayhem, and a centuries old mystery that involves our bold, quirky heroine MY THOUGHTS:The plot line was very original which RARE these days in books and the characters were quite likable.I [...]

    3.5/5. An interesting tale set in the medieval era. The cover is a perfect match to the story, one that's filled with magic, wonder, mystery, and lovely characters.Tucker is a great heroine. She grew up in an orphanage. Despite its deplorable condition, it did not dampen her spirit one bit. She's witty, resourceful, and has a great heart.Vivian is a very mysterious lady. I believe more of her tale has yet to be revealed. She's a bit too cold to my liking, but I guess her experience was partly to [...]

    9/10 Couldn't put it down. The writing was good, the characters were great, the plot was original. Because of Miranda's feminist rant/review of the book, I was prepared for some sort of horrible rape scene but guess what? There isn't one. A boy pushes Tucker into the wall and she knees him and runs away. He doesn't kiss her, or touch her, or do anything like that. It's teen fiction for crying out loud. I wouldn't say it's any more inappropriate than harry potter. But what would you expect from s [...]

    (This review was originally posted at My Library in the Making.)Set in a harsh and gruesome world filled with magic and where danger lurked in every corner, Scrap is the story of Tucker Scrap, a rough, resilient, trouble-making orphan girl from Hellip who works in a bakery and steals whatever she can to support herself and the other orphan kids. But when her two dearest friends disappear and an old friend makes herself known, Tucker decides that it's time to go on her own adventure.First things [...]

    Scrap is the first book in The Grimmic Chronicles by Emory Sharplin, her debut novel. The main character, Tucker, is an orphan, the leader of the orphans, in a town called Hellip, works at a bakery, and has two really close friends in Ash and Kally. Tucker's nickname is scrap since she was abandoned at the orphanage with a scrap of paper that said 'don't let her die' and a seemingly magical bracelet. When Ash and Kally vanish, a mysterious stranger named Vivian shows up with a proposal for Tucke [...]

    Find more reviews atLost In Wonderland I received this book free via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.I devoured this book, like a fat kid devours cake; this book is a purely delicious read! From the first page of the prologue, this book had me in its grasp. The book starts with the Kings most recent wife, being condemned to death at the gallows, because of her inability to bear the King a son. No sooner is she executed, than rebels start to cry out that the Queen was innocent, causin [...]

    _________________________________Scrap Review_________________________________Full formatting of this review at link aboveRAP was a novel that started out magnificently but slowly went downhill when it introduced alchemy and magical elements. I’m not sure if I disliked that because I was expecting pure, non-fantastical historical fiction, but I thought it was way too far fetched.I felt that the story could have been enjoyable with out all the extra magical pizazz.Tucker Scrap is given her name [...]

    Review copy provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review. No compensation. Apparently when reading on a screen, you just need to sit down and lose yourself in the story enough to read without minding the headache. Scrap makes that easy. I would've suffered a few headaches for this book. Admittedly, the beginning dragged a bit before the excitement really got going. However, the setting of the orphanage was rich, so I didn't mind the slow start. I loved getting to know the orphans. Ash, [...]

  • Kelly

    Thank you to NetGalley and to Green Leaf Book Group for my copy of Scrap.Scrap is a classic tale of an orphan who does not know where she comes from and has few clues to go on. Living with other orphans and trying to scrape together meager supplies to just survie, her life is hard. She has few friends that she trusts, and each of them have an unknown past as well. As the tale unfolds some truths are discovered, and some well, sometimes you are left with more questions!The story does have a fairl [...]

    I finished this book in one afternoon, which tells you how good it was. It was a fast read and very interesting. While I normally don't like to read books with adolescents as the main characters, the style and vocabulary that the author uses I forgot sometimes that the main character was 13 years old. The story intrigued me and kept me guessing and I can't wait to read the next books to discover some of the secrets and mysteries that envelop the characters. Occasionally I got confused by the sec [...]

  • Sasha LeAndre

    New favorite series! Searched for the sequel only to realize book one hit shelves just last month. That would explain the lack of buzz surrounding the series yet. The novel's prose was beautiful and the plot was both original and classic. Emory Sharplin's portrayal of magic was quite thought provoking as well. I would certainly recommend this story to others and am impatiently awaiting the next book. My favorite quote from Scrap: “I suppose that there's quite a difference between growing old a [...]

    2.5/5Originally posted at Gypsy ReviewsI received an eARC from Green Leaf Book Group via NetGalley. Thank you!Scrap sounds like an adventurous fantasy novel with a promising storyline and the potential to be something different from what we usually read. However, Scrap follows the lines of a typical fantasy novel despite the interesting history of the brutal king and the inclusion of alchemy. The plot was fairly predictable and it was difficult to believe the events due to the poor planning and [...]

  • Marella

    Orphans and stealing. Tyrant and magic. Gypsies and royalty. It's a grand world Emory Sharplin has imagined. The beginning grabs you and unfolds the story beautifully. The initial world-building (in some indeterminate time with tunics and horses and beheadings) is decent with just one element of magic - a charmed bracelet - that gives a hint of things to come. There were a couple instances of vocabulary use that didn't mean what the author was intending. It gave me a hint that the author was fai [...]

    Originally publishedon my blog.Scrap had the potential to be really great.In many ways, it’s a mix of Defiant by C.J. Redwine and Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, both books that I enjoyed greatly.Much like those books, the setting and world-building in Scrap are wonderful—the atmosphere is crisply described, hierarchies of class and ecosystem are described thoroughly, and the commoners’ ever-present fear of their king is palpable.The plot is very well thought out, paced, and structured.

    For more reviews please check out my blogHow can I review a book that is so average?By average, I do NOT (necessarily) mean boring. Just average. It is a book of average quality, with average writing, and characters that came straight off the discount rack. It's a fun read, all right (with some problems, which I shall describe below) and I found it addictive, but average. Nothing really special, but nothing dreadful either.Apart from the sexual politics. My GOD, Ermory Sharplin, MY GOD. We get i [...]

    I won this from a Firstreads giveaway. Having not read fantasy in some time, I looked forward to picking up Scrap and being immersed in the world of Grimmic. Felt like this was an adequately done job especially considering that the author wrote this as a high school junior. Impressive! I liked the characters and enjoyed the details about the orphan lifestyle. An easy entertaining read and supposedly there's supposed to be a sequel. Looking forward to seeing how Sharplin's writing progresses fro [...]

  • Courtney Newton/Shawnmarr

    Fantastic book!! Well-written and clever and full of characters I was quick to love. And I must admit while I semi expected something like that ending would happen, it still blew my mind because my suspicion was only 1/10th of what actually happened. Great read. Cannot wait to read the sequel. I highly recommend, especially if you're a fantasy fan! Tamora Pierce fans and those who loved Falling Kingdoms will love this one for sure.See my full review posted on my blog: courtreadsandreviews.

  • Elia

    3/5 starsI received this book through a promotion on NetGalley. I really enjoyed the book, but I did not expect such an abrupt ending. If I had known that this book would have a sequel, I might not have started it since it left so much undone at the end. Other than the frustration of no conclusion, it was a fun read. Tucker was a brave heroine who was full of life and humor. Emory Sharplin did a great job of creating a world with alchemy and danger, which was fun to immerse myself in. If the boo [...]

  • Katherine Holly

    This book was recommended to me by a friend early last week. Typically I read several books at one time, but this one collected my attention. I halted my progress on the three other novels I was in the midst of and finished this one in a matter of days! Very intriguing. Ends on a cliffhanger, but hopefully the sequel will pick right back up where the author left us hanging. 5/5 star would recommend

  • Amy Hilton

    Such an amazing story with a thrilling plot! I loved this book so much, I could hardly put it down! Full of surprising twists and enchanting adventures, this book compares to no other book I have read. This beautifully crafted story makes you feel as if you are traveling along right next to Tucker as she embarks on her journey to save the kingdom. I highly recommend reading this book and I can't wait for the sequel!!

  • The SMART Book Club

    I love fiction (particularly stories with magic) and was eager to delve into the realm of Grimmic. I was hooked from the first page and craving a sequel by the last! The writing was superb, the characters were lovable, and the plot was original. I would certainly recommend this book to all YA readers.

  • Penny

    Absolutely loved this story!! Very original and captivating. Well written too (especially considering the author is a teen!). There were no major S/G errors that I noticed, but I did note a few minor ones that I assume will be fixed before the publishing date. Can't wait for the sequel. Any other early readers hoping to see the woods in the next book??

  • SheFighter

    Does anyone know if there's any news about when the sequel is supposed to come out?
