  • I ve just finished reading this book like ten minutes ago and I m breaking my own rule as you can see I try not to write a review the same day that I finish the book I m sitting here in front of my shitty computer I really need a laptop and trying to say something meaningful about Narc So, I go and make another mistake I google the author And I like her and now I can t write all those shitty things I ve been thinking about last night after I ve read first half of the book Like, how I hate that e [...]


  • I am giving a big round of applause to Criss Jean Chappell for having the guts to be real here I greatly appreciated how she handled so many aspects of this story, especially the end This is a hard review to write because my feelings vary so widely here I adored the flawed, dumb teen boy main character who also is an honorable, loving brother and son In contemp fiction we so often have a flawed male MC designed to swoon us with his bad boy ways, then he evolves into the perfect male that we all [...]


  • My Rating 4 out of 5 stars.Disclaimers I received an e galley of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion My Overall Thoughts Impressions I went into this novel with no expectations I liked the cover and the first line of the synopsis had me hooked You re going to hate me forever when you learn my secret That pulled me into this novel I was slightly hesitant to read this novel because it s about drugs, but I figured I d give it a shot.I enjoyed this novel imme [...]


  • E galley received from Netgalley for review You re going to hate me forever when you learn my secret This sentence practically drew me in It s very powerful I would ve read the book just for this sentence alone.In order to protect his younger sister, 17 year old stoner Aaron Foster is practically forced to become a narc and help the cops discover who is dealing drugs to the students of Miami s Palm Hammock High School This is not easy for him Previously, he was human wallpaper and just drifted b [...]


  • What would you do if you were forced to make a life threatening decision that could hurt your family and friends How do you think those people would treat you after your decision was made What if you were forced to choose a side NARC, by Crissa Jean Chappell is a very alluring and adventurous book that I would recommend to any teen People who like high school based novels would love NARC The author really draws in your attention by her creative writing style and amazing detail of today s world o [...]


  • When Aaron Foster is stopped for speeding and the cop finds a baggie with weed, Aaron s life takes a major turn and not for the better To keep from going to jail and making his mom s life miserable than it already is, he agrees to become a narc From then on the story is about Aaron s failure as both narc at least for the most part and as a boyfriend.The writing is very strong I was impressed by the cliche free chapters that still managed to capture the teen voices And I enjoyed some of the fre [...]


  • I really liked this book There have been few times where I have to stop reading a book because I worry about what s happening Hunger Games after Rue was one This was another Not because it was scary or dark, but because there was no one there to worry about Aaron and I worried for him His mother existed in the sense that she s alive, but other than that, not a parental figure in the least Had she had a bigger presence in his life, he wouldn t have gone down the road he ended up on.I feel like th [...]


  • A riveting tale about a teens adventures being a narc for the Narcotics unit in Miami Aaron must decide between being a narc, him being tried as an adult for possession going to jail, or his little sister being charged with possession going to jail He decides to take what seems to be the lesser of the evils, and becomes a narc Little does Aaron know, what being a narc involves He is going from his normal days to having to be outgoing and hanging out with a crowd that he normally doesn t Along t [...]


  • Narc is the brainchild of author, Crissa Jean Chappell, known for crafting heart wrenching, emotional and poignant novels regarding the human condition This novel is no exception Written from a male POV, which is tricky as it is, Narc embraces the emotional underbelly of society and brings the humanity of all its characters to life The sparse, haunting prose isn t flowery or too descriptive Rather, the emotions, the themes and the pain takes center stage making the story incredibly raw and real, [...]


  • Aaron flipped to be an informant after being picked up for drugs.Morgan emo goth girl, dancer who cuts herself Aaron is interested I am buying this for my Ellen Hopkins kids It s not poetry, but the same type of drama they love The dialogue and characters feel real I have met these kids before.


  • Again, I found Ms Chappell s writing to be extremely exciting to read and finished her second book in less than a couple of days Both of the books the other being Total Constant Order are written for young people, probably teenagers, but are exciting none the less Both books lend themselves to a series and I hope that she has a sequel.


  • very well written, very romantic and thoughtful I loved it, after i was done i could not stop thinking about it



  • Judging the Book by its CoverWe think it s only fair that we state the definition of a narc before we begin our usual analyses A narc is a general term used to describe someone who informs the proper authorities when they see others committing illegal deeds The guy on the cover obviously doesn t look like an adult, so we re assuming he s a teenager Ohhhhhhh, boy Where we come from, narcing isn t exactly what you want to be known for In fact narcing, might just be the worst thing you can do, as a [...]


  • Aaron is torn He can either be a narc or be thrown into jail after he and his little sister are caught with drugs he has to protect his sister and he doesn t want to hurt his new friends, who are taking and dealing drugs Working as an undercover teen narc, people are onto him He s in the midst of speculation and danger I enjoyed the unique premise I ve never read a YA novel about narcs before and I loved the Miami setting.



  • Many know that I jump on any book be it YA or adult when the story is based in Florida or specifically to Miami Crissa Jean does a pretty great job on detailing the locations It helps visualize the story better when the author helps you picture the locations, people and items that you read in each page Being from Miami myself, to me its of a visit home The smells, noises and people come back to me in full color when I read Narc So every time her story went somewhere, I felt I was riding along [...]


  • Solid 2.5.When Aaron gets pulled over for speeding and his little sister s caught with a bag of weed in her pocket, the officer makes him a deal find out who the source of drug distribution is in his high school Over the course of his duty, Aaron befriends Morgan and Skully, two girls who are themselves heavy into the school s drug culture and who have ties to the source As soon as Aaron has the source in his sight, he s ready to spill to the police Except, it s not as easy as it sounds He s bec [...]


  • I received Narc as a free review copy, in exchange for an honest review First things first, is anyone looking at that cover the way I m looking at it I mean there s not a lot going on with the cover, but it s enough to make you wonder where that loner kid s story is going to take us.Narc is about a guy named Aaron, he s not the most popular kid in school, and he s not the smartest He looks just like the guy on the cover alone Until he s caught doing twenty over the limit, with his little sister [...]


  • Do you know about narcotics or drugs in particular How about the consequences for getting caught with these type of illegal things Well you will once you re done reading this book The reason why I say this is because throughout the book seventeen year old Aaron Foster goes through certain obstacles for the single mistake he committed and now he has to live with this burden until his job that was given to him is finished Enabling him to let go of the weight that he is holding on his shoulders Now [...]


  • This book was very different in the sense that it was like nothing else that I have read before.The premise was completely new to me and I liked that about it I liked how real it felt, the characters, the storyline and situations It was gritty and a little raw in details Very much what I could imagine life would be like for the characters.I felt bad for Aaron, he was a kid stuck in a really bad situation and just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and things just went down hill [...]


  • I just finished reading Narc, a teen fiction novel that I highly recommend to anyone reading this who either has kids, nieces, nephews or that wants to transport themselves back to that awkward moment called high school The gist of the story is that a kid s little sister gets busted with weed and instead of taking her to jail her loner big brother is coerced into coming out of his shell and befriending the cool kids in school because he has become a narc The novel is witty, humorous, suspenseful [...]


  • NARC by Crissa Jean Chappell is a powerful novel about a boy named Aaron who gets himself into some serious trouble I was deeply impressed with how Chappell brought out Aaron s voice, making him a sympathetic, troubled young man who is deeply loyal to family, protective of friends, and caught in the middle of his poor choices from the past and his current desire to make changes in his life He takes some stupid risks and gets mixed up in some pretty messy things, all involving drugs This is a cau [...]


  • I truly thought this book was very real and interesting Most authors have to have a super happy ending and they never really have anything too terrible keep happening to the main character, it always ends up being alright for them Well Crissa Jean Chappell was very real in this book She shows people how hard it is being a teenager by making Aaron stumble and fall and fail over an over again Don t get me wrong, he still was doing it for his little sister, but it still had the real events that mos [...]


  • I would recommend this book because it talks about how some group of people can change your life in how you think but it all depends on how the people look at you or treat you.


  • I read this on a Kindle That s why I know that, when I was 44% of the way through, I almost threw in the towel It wasn t until I was 71% through the story that I began to have interest in Chappell s characters And I made it through to the end Chappell redeemed herself the book had a satisfying ending In the beginning I found myself quite very extremely confused by the setting of the story I wasn t sure if I had by accident skipped pages, forgotten what was happening, or was intentionally being b [...]


  • How did you pick this book I picked this book after Mrs Peters came to our class and gave a short summary of this book.Significance of the title The title relates to the main character who has become a narc undercover in order to protect his sister Its the role that Aaron plays in this book.Purpose I think this author wrote this book to tell a story about doing whatever it takes to protect those you care about In the beginning he was trying to protect his sister, and in the end he was trying to [...]


  • I was so excited for Narc, since I love the cover, and the premise sounded perfect for me It turned out to be only an okay read for me, though, and I didn t connect with the story like I was hoping I would.I still love the whole idea of reading about a narc, and the plot is very well done Even if I didn t love everything about this book, I did enjoy finding out how something like this would work, how someone would go about setting up a drug bust The question of whether or not Aaron would go thro [...]


  • I wasn t sure what to expect from the novel Narc by author Crissa Jean Chappell In all honesty, the description synopsis had me both interested and at the same time nervous I m a teenager, I like to thing of myself as a very intelligent one because I am so against the use of drugs and illegal substances, so the idea of reading a story about a character who has used drugs in the past and is now forced to find a drug dealer and rat him out the cops definitely caught my eye It sounded interesting a [...]


  • I wanted to read Narc because the premise definitely interested me, and I really enjoy reading books from the male s POV I wondered how being a narc would play out in a high school setting And I was curious how a boy could go from being human wallpaper to fitting in with the in crowd I did actually enjoy the story like I thought I would At times the writing was good However, I found most of the book to be rushed and a bit clunky and disjointed Almost as if Chappell couldn t finish writing one se [...]
