A review by christygsp
The Hadley Academy for the Improbably Gifted, by Conor Grennan


I happened upon this book by chance, and I'm so glad I decided to read it!
I don't mind a good YA, and particularly a good YA fantasy, so I was really excited to read this one - and hoping it had a solid plot to hold my 20-something year old attention. It absolutely did.

I have to admit, that I was able to guess most of the ending about a third of the way in, but I was excited to continue and find out if I was right.
I thought it was a supremely clever idea/plot, and enjoyed stumbling along with the characters - who were all newbies to the world of the Hadley Academy and Improbables (as was the reader).

I enjoyed the characters, though I would have liked more of some.
I loved the ending (which I predicted anyway). I did find that sometimes the information felt more like an intense info dump of important stuff, and I had to take a few breathers! haha

If there are more coming, I'm totally on board. If not, I enjoyed this book so much that it doesn't really matter.
