  • I love dystopian/sci-fi novels, even when they confuse the hell out of me and Tick did just that, but not in a way to make me not like it. I was a satisfied confused if that makes sense.Jo wants nothing more than to be an artist in a world where brain “ticks” are “taken care of”. And boy does she have a whopper of a tick. Jo zones out and has visions of killing people, so many that shes completely numb to it. She has never acted on these visions, it’s just something that is part of her [...]


  • 4.5 starsTick is the debut novel of Allison Rose. It is classed as a YA/Dystopian however in my opinion this book crosses more genres and can also be classify as a contemporary, psy or thriller.The main character is Jo, who has an incredible artistic talent but also a dark secret. She has visions of brutally killing people. And there is no pick as to who it will be. She is trying to avoid getting noticed and 'adjusted' by drones patrolling an unstable America, whilst trying to find her direction [...]


  • I gave my copy of “Tick” to an avid reader I know after I'd finished it, telling her that it was aimed at young readers, but transcends both category and genre, and I thought she'd like it. Four days later, she called me a “brat” for leaving her hanging and swore she wouldn't give me the book back until I give her a copy of volume 2. “Tick” is a cliff hanger. But unlike so many stories that leave the reader wondering how a tense and convoluted situation will be resolved, this story l [...]

  • I won this book through First Reads. This book was fantastic! Great characters. Great plot. It was a great take on the dystopian genre. I look forward to reading more in this series and from this author.


  • Tick by Allison Rose tells the story of a teenager named Jo Bristol. Jo is a relatively normal high school student who wants to be an artist. Or at least she seems that way to everyone on the outside. Inside, Jo has a secret, a tick; she sees visions of herself violently killing those around her. These visions and their implications disturb her and Jo must keep her real self a secret or risk being "adjusted". When her visions increase and begin to seem like they might become reality, Jo has to f [...]


  • I won this through First Reads.Tick is about a teenaged girl named Jo who has great artistic talent but also possesses a tick, a misfire in her brain that causes her to see visions of herself killing people. At the start of the story her tick is manageable, she blacks out, has her vision, and no one is wiser to what she has just witnessed; but, as the story progresses, the tick becomes unmanageable as she begins acting out her visions in varying degrees. This takes Jo and the reader on a psycho [...]


  • Whoa.This book brings apocalyptic to another level. I enjoyed how fast-paced and vivid the story was. I had a love-hate relationship with the main character Jo, she was both selfish and selfless. I personally like when an author takes the time to make up their own words/slang that adds to the story, which Allison Rose works to her advantage. I love the concept of some people having ticks that effect them differently and the take over a technology company. All in all, this book has so many great [...]


  • A well executed dystopian novel. I cannot wait for the next two installments.Please find my review at forumsinebookclub/view


  • I won this book from first reads. I loved it, I thought it was such an original book. I think that the reason that I loved it so much was that it wasn't a romance novel. A lot of young adult novels have lots of romance in them and I'm not really a fan of romance. I really liked Jo, I love the idea that art can make a real difference in someones life. I cant wait for the second and third books.


  • Rated 3.5 really.Excerpt from my review - originally published at Offbeat YA. Pros: Not your usual dystopian. Never a boring moment. Romance plays a very small part in the story (which I think should be the case with a sci-fi book).Cons: Main character is not easy to empathise with. Near-future L.A. and lead's relationships would have benefited from a little backstory.WARNING! Very graphic violence and gore.Will appeal to: Those who like action, conspiracies, stories about redemption, and tough [...]


  • This is a sci-fi fantasy novel set in a dystopian future, suitable for young adults and up.The world is highly regulated and people are constantly being scanned for any brain anomalies. The fear is that any anomaly could be a precursor of a terrorist, so surgery is performed immediately to rid the person of the abnormality. However a major side effect of the surgery is that it robs the person of their creativity and unique spirit. This is why Jo, an avid painter, is constantly on the lookout for [...]


  • Other than 3 or 4 typos/errors I enjoyed this book a looootttt. I did feel some of the pacing was off and was much more dramatic than I anticipated. But I cannot wait for the second book!Would've finished it sooner but alas I had work interference!Hope it's out soon!
