Sang Sorenson used to be the invisible girl in class. As a new student to Ashley Waters High School, Sang hopes that her new friends will be the change she’s been craving and will make fitting in a breeze. But Academy students aren’t there to take it easy. The high school is overcrowded and rife with violence. When fights begin, Sang will uncover the true reason the boys traded in their private school life for a public one. This year, Sang will no longer be invisible. This year, Sang is a target. The principal and vice principal are hot to take Sang down, and her own mother is determined to entrap Sang forever in her belief that the safest place to be is in the shadows. Despite this, Nathan, Luke, Kota, North, Silas, Victor, and Gabriel will discover Sang’s unyielding loyalty. And they will sorely need it. The Academy, supremely influential. (Goodreads)
So after reading the first book yesterday, I couldn’t wait to read the second one. This series has already got me hooked and I still have a bunch of books to go! The joys…
The book carries on following the lives of Sang and her new found friends. What I loved about this book is that the characters seemed to click even more than in the first installment. It almost felt like I was making bonds with the boys myself and I felt like I was connecting more to the book through those bonds.
What I also loved about this book is the fact that we got to know Mr Blackbourne and Dr Green much better than before. I really really liked Dr Green as a character – although I would like to know what he said to her in Japanese. Along with the Greek that Silas said as well. Languages languages.
I would have liked to study the relationship a little bit more between Sang and her parents and sister. I feel that with a mother like Sangs, she would have noticed maybe if Sang was out as often as she was and I feel like Sang would have been punished more often for things that she never did. Or maybe that’s just me.
I gave this book 4/5 stars again and I am off to start the next one 🙂
