I ll be honest, I didn t go into this book expecting to love it The blurb just didn t grab me, so I wouldn t have started reading it at all if not for the recommendation of a friend whose opinions I trust And this book is now another reason why I trust those opinions.Joan has spent her entire life teaching herself to pass as ordinary hiding her superhuman strength, practicing her supernatural abilities in secret, making herself practically invisible at school and to her disappointing parents She [...]
This story is so engaging, I read it through twice in a row and was no less caught up in the suspense the second time than I had been the first There s a good mix of humor and serious elements, and the climax is absolutely heartwrenching.There s lots of setup for future books so Planet Adyn doesn t quite stand alone, but it s a strong first book and I m excited to see the rest of the universe fleshed out.
I ve read this book three times now and each time I appreciate it , and fall deeper in love What starts out as fun YA story with a fairly generic premise isolated special girl with superpowers meets a mysterious boy with cool powers, adventure ensues turns into something much deeper and ambitious.Basically, this series uses the trappings of generic special white girl YA to challenge our assumptions about power and racial hierarchy Later on, I found a post on the author s blog where they actuall [...]
What an engaging and fun read The characters are easy to relate to Initially I didn t think I was going to finishing reading, but as the plot got going I couldn t put it down When is the next book coming out I want

To say I m blown away by this book would be an understatement I love everything about it The characters, the story, the world building everything is absolutely wonderful I d write , but I need to go pick up the second book right now immediately.
This is a great series for anyone in their teen or preteen years, especially those who don t quite fit in in their schools and or communities While some of the word choice can be clunky at times, the author does a fantastic job exploring social issues through a fun adventure story that anyone can enjoy.
It was written very well It was a engrossing page turner I don t usually read science fiction but this became one of my favorite books I am very excited to read the second book
I won this book via First Reads I am an ECE administrator and I look forward to adding this book to the lending library for parents and staff at my school.
