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


I received a copy of this through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

3.5/4 stars.

A fast paced action mystery, a prophecy that needs to come to pass and a group of misfits forced to bond under immense pressure.

Fans of X-Men, The Hunger Games and Divergent will enjoy this book immensely.

If I had anything negative to say, I feel that the story feels a little rushed. More time could have been spent on the characters, their interactions, how their connections form and grow.

This is certainly a story that gets better the further you delve into it. The last quarter really tied everything together.

This would make a fantastic movie though as there is a lot of action scenes.
