Secrets is the 2nd book in The Geneva Project series.  I love YA fiction and this book is perfect for anyone who loves books like Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, The Mortal Instruments or Percy Jackson.  The writing in Secrets is even more addicting than the beautiful store the author weaves in Truth.  I love the characters and the amazing adventures they go on.  There is so much action and mystery.  I can't wait for the next book in the series.
Evilous More than 1 year ago When we left Tippy, aka Geneva, in Truth she just found out her destiny and oh yeah Jemma, her enemy is now her older sister. Shock set in now. It's overwhelming to learn all of this. Add to that she had just put an end to an evil hunting them and she needed a moment. Things quickly get into gear as the gang joins with the Beto people in the forest, constantly on the move to keep themselves safe. My thoughts and theories about a couple things were in fact true, I'm that good. Though I admit it happened in a different way than expected. In Secrets we get to meet so many new characters while still learning new things about the ones we already love. My favorite new addition was Jovi. We found out more about the legends and history of the island. This is important if they wish to change the past and not let history repeat itself. Along with tons of character development and growth, because Eva has some serious stuff to cope with. Sure she doesn't always make the sound decisions but she's young and she's overwhelmed and I had a hard time being upset about any mistakes or decisions she made based on flawed logic because of that. I loved being in her head and seeing just what she was going through and how she came to her decisions. Even when things are not explained to her fully or she is lied to and betrayed she still finds it in her heart to do what is best for everyone and not take a vindictive stance. That shows me she is a good leader. She has her moments and she may do some things against her personal desires and get a touch of payback in there but she at least feels bad after. Heads up I didn't feel bad at all. I'm not even going to try and describe the tension of all types between all the characters, lots of emotions and feels happening there but I think it was best to experience so I don't want you to be expecting anything specific and ruin the ah ha moment. I'll just say wow…some stuff is going down. High drama levels down right. Secrets also focuses on their mission. They need to find the four pillars. Eva believes that the best place they will be is back at the orphanage they escaped from. They have to go back. No one is excited at the prospect of course but it's a necessary evil they must work towards with the best plan possible. The road is dangerous, more so as in this book we find out more of the other side, the evil group that are seeking out Eva and the pillars for a completely opposite reason than peace and unity. Seeing things happen from both angles and knowing how more than the other characters made it all the more intense. There is so much happening in the book. Things never stop moving. The continued world building is astounding and completely natural as they learn about the legends and at the same time it blends so easily into the characters stories it's perfect. I really enjoyed this book and I'm beyond excited for book three: Lies to come out next month.

This is such a great read! If you like Divergent, Harry Potter, Twilight you'll love Secrets. Christina is a brilliant writer and creates an amazing world for her characters in Secrets. If you haven't read the fist book of the series Truth, get to it so you can read the second one!

Super fun sequel to Truth.  Loved the development of existing characters and addition of new ones. Just like the first volume this was a page turner to the end. Keep em coming!

I loved the first installment of The Geneva Project, and this one only got better! All of the characters have grown and evolved in “Secrets”, and it’s easy to find yourself identifying with even the ones you think you shouldn’t like, such as Geneva’s sister. The world of Hullabee Island continues to expand, and we’re introduced to several new mystical creatures that make the book fun and interesting. I was very impressed at how the author progressed the Myth of Hullabee Island and Geneva, and threw some new twists in for her readers. The theme of “Secrets” is very prevalent throughout the book, and I loved seeing how Geneva navigated through the minefield that she created for herself by keeping so many things from her friends, whether it was because she wanted to keep them safe or didn’t trust them. The ending was perfect and left me eagerly waiting for the third book. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys young adult fiction, especially fans of Harry Potter and the Percy Jackson series.

Wow! I recently read "TRUTH" the first book in the Geneva Project Series and was happy to know the second book was recently released. "SECRETS" picked up right where "TRUTH" left off and the action took off right away. Like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, you get to know your favorite characters more as their fast moving adventure continues. Couldn't put the book down; Christina Benjamin's writing continues to hook you and sucks you into the adventure. All I can say is ......Christina Keep them coming! BJ
