    1. EDIT: Fucking outage I lost my first review.Anyway, let me tell you a story. It was the best of the YA romance time, it was the worst of time when Twilight was made, it was the age of wisdom in Erotic books, it was the age of foolishness when the FSoG was published, it was the epoch of belief in Adult mystery crime books, it was the epoch of incredulity when Dan Brown's Angel and Demons shook the catholic foundation(you get the gist) and I dreamed of reading a very good YA mystery/thriller. I wa [...]


    2. A well written and engrossing book that focuses on Politics. Where do I sign up?The Fixer easily becomes one of my favorite reads this year. It is without doubt, this book is joining my Top Ten Favorite Reads of this year.For me the best kind of books is the one that makes me feel intoxicated as if I am drunk in life’s high. The Fixer evokes these feelings for me. I was instantly hooked from the very first eyes I laid on it. There is Barnes’s trademark writing, snark, a group of teenagers bo [...]



    3. We all have those authors that we instinctively go to when we need something fun, original, and well written. Something that will keep us on the edge of our seats, engaged in the story from beginning to end. Something we will think about when we put the book down and something we will still be thinking about long after it is over.Jennifer Lynn Barnes, is that author for me. She hasn't let me down yet and her latest release, The Fixer, is testament to why that still remains the same.I adored this [...]


    4. This review has also been posted on The Social PotatoWhat we need more in YA is political thrillers. SERIOUSLY. This book was so much fun and so addictive. It’s the kind of book you want to high-five while reading (don’t question my logic of high-fiving inanimate objects).For starters, believe the tagline, this book actually did remind me of Scandal (the tv show) and in the best possible way. I would also encourage you to disregard that bit about love triangles in the blurb because I don’ [...]


    5. In The Fixer, we follow Tess, as she rediscovers her older sister, Ivy, after a family tragedy. Since the deaths of their parents over a decade ago, Tess has been living with her grandfather on a farm in rural Montana. Unfortunately, her grandfather falls ill with Alzheimer's, and Tess can no longer look after herself. Ivy comes to the rescue, and flies Tess off to Washington D.C and sets her up at the prestigious Hardwicke Academy. As she discovers that Ivy is involved in high politics, and is [...]


    6. HOLY SMOKES! This was phenomenal! My review: Go get this book. Read it now! Seriously, guys, The Fixer is everything I didn't know I wanted in a YA book. (YESS! Give me more!) Okay, I'm not that versed on political thrillers and I'm unfamiliar with either popular hit sitcom "Scandal" or "Veronica Mars", so yeah, I was a tad bit hesitant picking this one up, wondering how on earth are they going to spin this one out for young adults, while maintaining a healthy dose of believability and excitemen [...]


    7. Fafa's Book Corner (Wordpress)Fafa's Book Corner (Blogger) Beware spoilers ahead!When I first heard about this book the only thing that went through my mind was the fact that it is compared to Heist Society. Naturally I added it thinking it would be an excellent heist and espionage novel. Then one day I decided to read the synopsis again and warning bells went off in my head. The idea of a 'Fixer' sounded odd and I am not a fan of books that have politics in it. Nonetheless I wanted to read it b [...]


    8. Thank you to Andye from readingteen for letting me review this book!4.5 SHINING SHINING STARSThis book was. So. Clever. Political intrigue. Fitted with a Sherlockesque main character and a mystery that will get your brain chugging away. Topped with witty dialogue. Mix it all together and you've got a brilliantly plotted novel with a genius set of characters otherwise known as The Fixer.I had no idea what to expect going in to this. I was thinking some kind of contemporary with a Gossip Girl vibe [...]


    9. The Fixer was a fun and quick read. In fact, I managed to read it on one rainy afternoon. The Fixer is the story of Tess Kendrick, a teenager who is forced to leave her Montana ranch when it becomes apparent that her grandfather is no longer able to care for her. Tess moves in with her big sister Ivy, who happens to work with a lot of very influential people in Washington D.C. Ivy makes things happen and Tess seems to follow in big sister's footsteps. When a classmate's grandfather dies, Tess is [...]


    10. Please fix the book hangover I have now   Quote "You're telling me that my sister is a professional problem solver?" I asked tightly. "She just goes around solving other people's problems? How is that even an occupation?""Supply and demand?" Vivvie suggested. "Around here, we call them fixers." Review My love for this book is unreal. I've said this before, but political intrigue is definitely one of my ultimate favorites in YA--typically, they come wrapped in high fantasy shaped packages though [...]


    11. Could I have waited until the sequel was out so I wouldn't have to wait to see what happens next? I totally could have. There are so many books to read!But did I do that?Nooooo. And now I have to wait.I can't wait to see what happens next!!


    12. Еще одна история про то, что "хорошими намерениями вымощена дорога в ад".Главная героиня, 16-я Тесс переезжает в Вашингтон к старшей сестре на ПМЖ, которая при Белом доме работает а-ля Оливией Поуп. (Оливия Поуп - героиня ТВ сериала "Скандал", который рассказывает про женщину (О [...]


    13. I've reached the stage where I'd voluntarily read Barnes' shopping list. If you love a bit of politics--the push and pull of power--than you'll eat this one right up. Review To Come.


    14. Шикарненько. Отличается от Естественных отсутствием экшна и большим количеством размышлений. Но все равно читать интересно, а герои все так же цепляют с первых глав. Здесь нет любовной линии, зато есть отличная линия дружбы. Плюс, пара тройка годных тайн, которые помогут ва [...]



    15. [4.5 Stars] I can’t get enough of Jennifer Lynn Barnes! Her books are smart, engaging, and so well constructed that she’ll always have your brain reeling. I read The Fixer (The Fixer series #1) with the hope that it would help hold me over for when Bad Blood (The Naturals series #4) comes out November 1st. And you know what? The Fixer completely satisfied my crime novel craving!While The Naturals series is a YA version of the show Criminal Minds, The Fixer series is very reminiscent of Scand [...]


    16. This is a tough one. One the one hand, NO ONE writes thrillers like Barnes. On the other, this book is a bit hard to swallow. It's not just teens solving mysteries - they're solving deep-seated political schemes that go all the way to the top. It's Scandal meets Veronica Mars.Although I appreciated that the book is full-on uncovering government secrets, it could have done with a bit of softening with either humor or romance. Because of that I got about 70 percent through and skimmed the rest.**I [...]


    17. This book has been recommended by my friends who know my love and weakness for thriller/mystery type of books since forever and it did not disappoint. It was smart and slick, and I throughly enjoyed the characters and the political conspiracy behind it all. This book reminded me of my favorite police drama, with its well thought plot and the sharp twists that brought it to life.Full review to come soon.




    18. Murder, blackmail, secrets, and cover-ups! Watch your back. These people can slice and dice you with smiles on their faces! Smiles that can sell papers, charm the masses, and win elections. Welcome to DC politics!Estranged sisters, Tess and Ivy Kendrick, are trying to be a family again in Washington DC, where Ivy is a problem solver in the world of politics. Ivy is that someone you want on your side. Someone who can fix anything. Sixteen year old Tess soon proves that the apple doesn’t fall fa [...]



    19. Wat is dit toch een heerlijk boek! Vol met politieke machtsspelletjes, geheimen en mysterie. Lees hier mijn recensie: nerdygeekyfanboy/recensie/


    20. This is like YA House of Cards except the main characters aren't terrible people and it's amazing and I should've read it ages ago. Don't be like me, read it now. NOW.


    21. I read this book a few weeks back, but didn't get to review it till now.LOVED, loved, loved this book. A BIG thanks to Paige Bookdragon for steering me towards this book. Her excellent 5-star review Paige's review had me pitching this book to the front of my TBR pile. I was hesitant to read this because of the Scandal meets Veronica Mars marketing for this book. Not only are those two things quite a lot to live up to, but also, that kind of comparison makes me think that this is going to be a cl [...]


    22. This book, HOLY SHIT (Excuse my language). I thought I had somewhat figured it out while I was reading, but I was totally wrong. It was so shocking and kept me guessing until the literal last page. I am a sucker for books set on the political scene, and I love suspense and mystery, therefore, I was sold on this book from the second I read the synopsis. I really like Tess (our main character) because she is truly a strong independent girl who isn't focused on a boy (not that being focused on a bo [...]


    23. Was The Fixer a blatant rip-off of the Scandal tv series?Do I care?It's been quite a while since a book had me so completely riveted, so absolutely enthralled, and, once that happens, there's very little that will stop me from really digging that book. The Fixer was very entertaining, suspenseful, and actually managed to surprise me with a couple of twists. I need to stress how important it is to me that a book surprises me. Most thrillers, mysteries and horror stories fall through for me becaus [...]


    24. Although I was initially very intrigued on the political bent that The Fixer had, I think overall it was quite disappointing. People weren't joking when they compared it to The Heist Society. I’ll admit, both books were quite enjoyable for a light read - although quite unrealistic, to an extent. The Fixer follows up on that tone and atmosphere, where in the midst of the political intrigue is familial relationships and teenagers who have nothing better in their lives to do. Before I begin, let [...]


    25. Tess Kendrick lives in Montana with her grandfather when suddenly her older sister Ivy whisks her away to live with her in D.C and attend Hardwicke Academy, a private school where the kids of Washington’s most powerful attend. when Tess, like her elder sister, takes on the role of fixer at her school, dealing with problems and covering up scandals, a conspiracy surfaces, making things a lot more complicated for her, and her friends.The Fixer is a great book, it’s super fun and exciting and e [...]
