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


This was a nice surprise--exciting story, descriptive, and imaginative with succinct writing. Still kids behaving as adults (and pretty impossible to believe, if you stop and think about it...); but still entertaining read.

I still get annoyed when white authors keep calling out the racial characters of certain characters ("a strong black boy appeared...") while every other (white) character just gets to be described by their character and not race. It's subtle, but still.
