Elevated by Elana Johnson synopsis and review

Elana Johnson's books are awesome. I know that they are teen books, but who doesn't love a book that's wholesome and amazing at the same time? I know that I do. So when she asked for people to read and review her upcoming book Elevated, I jumped at the chance!


The last person seventeen-year-old Eleanor Livingston wants to see on the elevator—let alone get stuck with—is her ex-boyfriend Travis, the guy she's been avoiding for five months.

Plagued with the belief that when she speaks the truth, bad things happen, Elly hasn’t told Trav anything. Not why she broke up with him and cut off all contact. Not what happened the day her father returned from his deployment to Afghanistan. And certainly not that she misses him and still thinks about him everyday.

But with nowhere to hide and Travis so close it hurts, Elly’s worried she won’t be able to contain her secrets for long. She’s terrified of finally revealing the truth, because she can’t bear to watch a tragedy befall the boy she still loves.

I totally read this book in a few hours. I could not put it down! And since I started it late at night, I finally went to sleep around 4 am. But anyways, this book is about Elly, a girl who is dealing with a lot. Her dad got injured, she lost both of her best friends, but in different ways, the only other person she could talk to moved away.

And that's just the stuff everyone knows about. She seems to think it is all her fault because bad stuff seems to happen when she tells someone her secrets. That isn't including the one thing she can't seem to tell anyone. At least she couldn't until she gets trapped unexpectedly in an elevator with the one person she had been trying to avoid.

I love how she ends up telling her biggest secret to the one person who really needs to know. I also love how she doesn't let her love for Travis stop her from following through with her plan to leave her home. But at least now she's not running away by doing it, she's moving on with her life.

I have to give this book 4.5 stars and think that you should go pick it up as soon as it comes out. That's my honest opinion of this book
