Until Beth got off to a bit of a crazy start – every chapter it seemed like someone was gone, dead, or injured. But it was all downhill from there for me. After her brother is injured, her Mom decides to relocate the family to a home that will be more accessible. Beth had gotten the chance to audition for a special school that at first she didn’t want to go to, but after her Mom announces the move she decides maybe she should audition after all. She gets in to the school but all the kids there seem to have some secrets going on. Unfortunately I found things were moving a bit too slowly for me and sometime after she got to school I decided the book was no longer for me. Other reviews mentioned this being a book similar to XMen, so I guess you can maybe figure out what the “secret” is from that. Or maybe not. I wish I could have liked this book more, it seemed to get off to such a good start but completely lost my interest. This is a YA read, which usually I do enjoy, but maybe I am just a bit too old to be the target audience for this one.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
