I was supposed to read this for a book club ages ago and never did. Now is the time!
I couldn’t really tell what it would be about at the start. And then it turned into all the kinds of plots I like! Entry tests, competition, learning, challenges!
The first half of the book flew by and I really enjoyed Jess as a male protagonist. The middle wasn’t so great but I liked the world building. I liked how each of the characters had their own personality – would have been nice to get to know some of them more before they died. I also wish we got to know Jess’ family a bit more – especially his Dad and his brother, Brendan.
The end was fantastic and I’m really excited to know what happens in the rest of the series.
