PlatinumSupernatural happenings may be the downfall of the most popular girl at Emory High in Jennifer Lynn Barnes s sequel to GOLDEN Lilah Covington s mum will be marrying Lissy s uncle, and thus they re family Lissy, sister Lexie, and their mother and grandmother all have the Sight, each in its various forms and now it seems Lilah has retronition, the ability to see into the past That s why only she can communicate with the ghost who s suddenly always around Plus Lilah s also having visions in which there will be murderbut the only way to stop it and history repeating is to step inside her vision Lilah is a caricature popular girl she knows she s on top, and she ll stomp on anyone who tries to better her even her supposed best friend There doesn t seem to be any real friendship amongst them, but surely even popular girls experience real friendship Then there s the girl from forty years ago, who was so in love with her own beauty, power and popularity that she thrived on watching boys fight to the death over her It s lame, and Helen is a caricature as well as Lilah But despite its flaws, this is actually a fun read Try not to think, just speed through it, and you should find it a pleasant way to pass your day This is the follow up to Golden and places the snobby blonde in the role of speaker It s actually refreshing to have a a moderately distasteful protagonist this is certainly no Mary Sue The book will undoubtedly entertain younger readers Seasoned readers will probably feel that this one drags a bit in its pacing and also repeats itself unnecessarily The plot might have benefited from a few layers, but it is, after all, a young adult book It s okay. Platinum, Jennifer Lynn Barnes follow up to Golden, is told from the viewpoint of Golden s erstwhile villain Lilah In the aftermath of Golden, Lilah doesn t seem to have changed much She s still on top as the ruling Ice Queen at Emory High.When supernatural visions of a ghost boy start to tear away portions of Lilah s carefully constructed persona, her closest frienemy poises to steal her boyfriend and oust her from her seat as reigning queen Reluctantly, Lilah must reach out to members of the James family to help her defeat a supernatural force that has been taking the lives of popular high school teens ever ten years and still stay on top.Most teens who read Golden will want to follow up with this title, but Lilah is not nearly as sympathetic a character as Golden s Lissy James Though it s nice to know that even those who appear perfect have problems, it might be hard for readers to sympathize with a protagonist who doesn t seem too guilty after telling someone her skirt looks like vomit But this does provide a read that will move along at a steady clip, reaching an entertaining, if somewhat predictable, climax.Barnes will likely follow this title with another about Lissy s younger, somewhat mysterious sister, Lexie, whose gift of The Sight is the ability to see truth and fiction. This is a sequel to Golden, although as it involves another character as a protagonist I don t think it s really necessary to have read Golden Lilah, cool kid, develops the ability to see ghosts including one very attractive and flirtatious boy Probably the most interesting part of this novel is the insight into Lilah s strategies to maintaining her super cool status at school, and her feelings about those strategies However, the book is really about her figuring out what ghost boy wants, which is kind of drawn out, and ends in an unsatisfactory way Platinum is OK, but no than that. Eh Kind of anti climatic and plotless, but I find Barnes over the top portrayal of high school and popularity quite funny in it s sheer extreme ness. I am loath to admit that I even read this It was a convoluted take on a modern day Helen of Troy To put it simply it was awful I struggled to follow the writing through out which was a problem in and of itself and the story was ridiculous and involved an age old curse where a ghost boy killed another boy at the girl s high school every four years in October I m not going to even waste my time or yours by going into any detail than that. Originally reviewed 2 12 08Lilah Covington s life has changed A LOT since finding out the Lissy James family secret every female descendant has some form of the Sight Now, she s seeing things, like memories of everyone she encounters, things that has happened in the past..oh and ghosts Well, one ghost to be exact One very cute ghost boy who just happens to like hanging out Lilah She can deal with all that, but when Ghost Boy informs her that her boyfriend will be killed in a matter of days and that he Ghost Boy will the murderer she reluctantly decides to seek Lissy, Lexie Lissy s younger sister , and their creepy grandmother s help.Like ALL the Golden fans, I have been impatiently waiting for the sequel to Golden to arrive and take it s place among the other awesome books that Jennifer Lynn Barnes has written so far I for one am not disappointed Jennifer has once again mix regular high school life and drama to the paranormal world where anything can happen and produced near perfect results I almost started to believe that some teens in ever high school has to deal with paranormal situations in their lives On a slightly 10% bitter note I d have to say that I didn t care much for the B plot in this book sorry I won t tell what it was in fear of giving away the story s ending, let s just say I knew what really happened and I wasn t surprised at the way everything turned out.Over all Platinum was a very entertaining reading and an enjoyable break from the college textbooks I have been reading.
