    I wanted to love this but it was only okay What I didn't know about this book was that it's the second in a series but it's touted as a standalone novel The shadow organization that Robert Hutchinson is recruited into is the subject of the first book and its separate protagonist who shows up at the end of this book Which meant that I was confused because I didn't know who she was or why she was suddenly thereHutch the main character of this book is recruited out of juvie into a top secret organization to become a bodyguard to a Future VIP In his case he is tagged to protect a member of a boy band so he's renamed Bobby Sky and linked with his subject There wasn't enough boy banding and the link he shares with his subject only goes as far as protective infatuation nothing sexual about it much to apparently every reviewer's chagrin Even if I were to get a copy of the first book in the series I don't know if I'd read it; the author's writing was stilted and unimaginative

    More reviews and no fluff on the blog Adding this is not a gay story there isn't any romance and it isn't about j pop or pop idols So those looking for those primary elements will want to look elsewhere This is a snarky fun edgier mystery with a bit of sci fiJoe Shine's previous book I Become Shadow was a favorite of several of us in our reading group Fun snarky and full of action it was a book you couldn't help but love Sure there were some suspension of disbelief moments but who cares when the reading experience was so good With Bobby Sky Boy Band or Die Shine returns to the same world with a story taking place concurrently to Ren's in Shadow The difference is that Boy Band's main character actually likes and appreciates what FATE is doing perhaps a bit too muchStory Hutch is the eternal disappointment of both his mother and the local police he isn't above theft or beating senseless a father hitting his young son with a baseball bat But it appears he's gone too far and ended up in an extended stay in Juvie When a woman visits him and tells him he will die the next day he's given a choice ignore the lady and take his chances tomorrow or be recruited into a program to save those who will influence the future Hutch goes through the program swimmingly though he hates certain aspects When he gets his first assignment he's told it will involve following a member of a boy band and ensuring the lead singer survives to fulfill his destiny But there is much to the picture than Hutch could have envisionedFirst and foremost this isn't a romance boyboy or boygirl Hutch is definitely hetero and spends most of the book falling in and out of lust with various girls He's a very interesting character in that regard he knows what he wants but lacks the emotional depth to really see it through Those who read the first book will recognize how it works with the important person our main characters aren't out to romance them at allSecond this story is set in the same timeline as the first book concurrently to be specific So there is one moment when Hutch comes in contact with Ren as she is going through the program as well Otherwise this is a stand alone and can be read without needing to read the first book By the end though you'll want to have read both books since the timelines convergeThe boy band aspect takes up a surprisingly small amount of the plot The first half is about FATE the middle about preparing to join a boy band and the last is full on action We never really get to know the rest of the boy band much including the lead singer But I found it amusing that in both books the important person was a bit of an innocent and sheltered person It made a nice contrast to our reality grounded and aggressive operativesAll the snarky fun of the first book is here Hutch is just as complicated yet simplistic a character as Ren and all the witty bon mots are intact Hutch might be a bit harder to get into since he operates on a fairly shallower level than Wren The book flows so well and really is a pleasure to read There is a surprise at the end I can't wait for book three

    I Become Shadow is easily one of my top 5 favorite books out of thousands I've read Excellent re read uality And I was really worried that this one just wouldn't be able to compare I was gleefully mistaken I fell in love with these characters as much as with the first books There wasn't much of a romantic angle here so if you're looking for that seek elsewhere Really interesting story and nice inclusion of the previous book while still retaining independence I'll be sure to buy this one in hard copy

    ARC provided by Soho PressSoho Teen via NetGalley for an honest reviewHow can you resist that title? Combined with that cover you just have to give this book a shot It ended up being a different read than I expected it is darker and at times disturbing but still a riveting read that you won’t be able to put down“It’s okay if my story ends here heck maybe it’s supposed to It has been a ride I’ll give you that I was betrayed heartbroken shot stabbed and run over And that was just during my first year in the program That’s not even the good stuff How do plane crashes death suads car chases and the Yakuza sound? Are you interested? If not you need to seriously reevaluate what you are looking for in your entertainment needs because that stuff should raise the eyebrow of a hairless cat”I liked Hutch Bobbly almost from the start He is a bad boy with a heart of gold He is also witty and smart and his attitude often gets him in trouble but it also gets him out of it at times to The story starts with Hutch at fourteen but by the end he is 19 and an international rock star How he gets there is pretty unbelievable but through it all he manages to keep his heart and care about what happens to others even those he doesn’t know Even when the program destroys all of his friendships and threatens everyone he cares about he still does all he can to protect themFATE is one messed up place and it is pretty brutal and cruel At first Hutch refuses to hit a girl but they beat that out of him Through his 2 years there he has to kill or die These are kids who were suppose to be dead anyways so it doesn’t matter if they die during their training Things are pretty bleak but Hutch wants to survive and at times he enjoys his training like when he learns to fly planes and all types of vehicles He doesn’t want to hurt others but he has to or be hurt himself It is pretty messed up I was happy when he was able to leave that life The story is all told by HutchBobby in the first person which makes it personable There are also some futuristic aspects to the story that puts it on the edge of science fiction There is a drug that keeps all of the kids from feeling pain useful when you are being beaten up on a daily basis And then they use another device to bond you to your FIP which is kind of messed up If your FIP dies you lose your mind Because the plot covers a huge time span there is not a lot of time devoted to his time in the Boy Band I would have enjoyed reading about that part of his life a bit There are huge leaps in time which were necessary but still jarring at times Overall the plot was fascinating fast paced and with some twists that made you want to keep reading There was also a bit of a James Bond feel to the story especially towards the end I thought this was a standalone but discovered after reading it that there is another book that probably comes before the story in this one Which now explains part of the ending that I was a little confused about Bobby Sky can be read first as I think it is a story separate from the first But I will let you know after I read the first book I Become Shadow Hopefully there will be a third book although there is nothing listed yet A gripping read for fans of James Bond or dark thrillers

    How?HOW??How can an author create a book that is a mixture of hilarious moments action and a coming of age tale?I'm not sure what wizardry happened to create this book but I am so GLAD it happened I finished Bobby Sky Boy Band or Die in very few sittings and I couldn't wait to get back to it each time I had to stop reading What a fun bookI read it not realizing it was something that takes place in the same universe as another of the author's books Everything made sense alone Actually I didn't even realize it until I was preparing to write my review But I did add that other book to my listThis whole teen spyprotectorkiller thing is uickly becoming one of my favorite sub genres Maybe because I always liked The Americans tv series or Charlie's Angels Hutch is a protagonist that I may not identify much with but I really liked following him around He's smart snarky and the glamour of being a pop star was an interesting situation to place him in The good news there's not a lot of actual romance There are bits and pieces here and there but nothing overarching I'm not a huge romance fan so it was great for meThere is a twist at the end that I LOVED I know some folks will not like it because they have to wait for book three but I dig a good twist and cliffhangerI'm off to read book 1 in this universe I Become Shadow

    Two stars instead of one for the book having entertaining moments with a story that keeps moving without a dull moment But that's where my enjoyment of the book ends As an avid fan of k pop boy bands I picked up the book because of the title I was disappointed The author skips over all the boyband parts Also never establishes any of the characters so you don't care when anyone dies You also have no vested interest in shipping any of the boyband members because again no characters are developed and it's just a backdrop to all the action The story reads like a teenage boy's wetdream The story is narrated by Hutch the teenage badboy with a heart of gold He's recruited into be a secret agent in a secret organization And because he's a mary sue great at everything he's assigned to a mission where he joins the greatest up and coming international boyband Then he gets to be adored by millions of fangirls while also being a badass getting in gun flights and surviving plane crashes and whatever And I found Hutch to be completely unlikable Described as having long greasy hair from not showering enough Yuck And all girls make him horny and thus he hits on anything with boobs With pickup lines and I'm paraphrasing here because I'm too lazy to look up the exact uote What's your name sweetheart? Because you're going to be the future Ms Hutch shutters What a creep He views himself as a savior to women And he loooves fighting Oh great a macho womanizing asshole from Texas Every fangirl's dream eyeroll I have a feeling the author did no research about boy bands or fangirls I could be wrong

    Robert ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson is sarcastic and charming and readers will love to follow him in his journey from juvie bound teen to secret agent trainee to all star boy band member Hutch is on the run from the cops—again and this time his penchant for bursting into song can’t save him He lands himself in juvie and is met by an agent who tells him he can either leave with her no uestions asked or die tomorrow What would any sane kid do? He leaves with her and is knocked unconscious When he wakes up he finds himself in a high security facility and is told to obey the rules at all costs if he wants to a survive and b pass the test to gain his freedom If he passes he will become a Shadow—a protector of a Future Important Person After making it through the grueling tests Hutch finds out he has become a Shadow Only problem his FIP is Ryo Enomoto a world famous boy band member And now so is Hutch and worse off he’s got to use his singing which is what got him in trouble in the first place This is not what Hutch signed up for but it’s a job he’s got to do—or else he dies Will he be able to do it? Be tough AND be in a boy band AND keep Ryo safe? For a fast paced fun and all around snarky novel ‘Bobby Sky Boy Band or Die’ is a great addition to any Young Adult collection This book can and should be read concurrently with author Joe Shine’s debut novel ‘I Become Shadow’

    Robert Hutchinson Hutch is recruited at the age of 14 to become a trained killer He is a good boy who is good at being bad The author's words not mine Recruited being a loose term since if he doesn't want to join Hutch will die Upon graduation the recruited are secretly paired as a bodyguard to someone who is considered important to future world events Hutch gets tasked with guarding a member of a boy band Ryo so he also has to become a member who goes by the name Bobby Sky When the agency decides they no longer need Ryo Bobby Hutch has to choose between the organization that trained him or Ryo I picked this up because it seemed like an easy teen read But the book could definitely have used better editing There were words missing or the wrong word in sentences As other people commented there are lots of characters but you don't get to know them There is lots of violence and graphic descriptions of the violence being done and yet Hutch doesn't swear in his narrative Instead there is the letter 's' wherever the character would curse which doesn't seem to go with his character To top it all off Hutch is an unreliable narrator and I didn't really care about him But the book just ends which leaves me to wonder what happened to Ryo? The little research I did I don't see mention of a seuel YA kids who are into the action of the Hunger Games without the politics might find this an entertaining read But I wasn't into it
