by Micol Ostow
Based on the massively successful CW show, Riverdale, this prequel novel explores what the gang was doing before Season One.
Why did Jughead and Archie have a falling out? What did Veronica’s life look like in the Big Apple? And how long has Betty really been in love with Archie?
Told from multiple points of view, your favorite characters tell their story their way.
I was so very excited to join this tour! I am a huge fan of the TV show and couldn’t wait to start this to see what had happened before the start of the series.
I adored the way the book was set up! You have POV’s from each character and get the background into so many situations that you may have been curious about. Like…Archie and Ms. Grundy, Jason and Cheryl, Jughead and his Dad, Veronica and her life before Riverdale…..and so on!
The book was written as diary entries, regular verse and text messages between the characters. It was fun to read it this way and easier to picture it happening while already knowing the characters themselves.
If you are a fan of the show already, then I suggest just picking this up since it is such a quick, fun read to give a little more insight into the before, but, if you have yet to start the show, this could be a great introduction.
