My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In the space of a few hours, perhaps not even a few of which belonged to a portion of the long and difficult to endure car trip, I flew right through this. It’s the first time in a long time that I’ve really been engaged in a world. I’m glad I finally decided to start reading this. The Young Elites does have its flaws, but on the whole I enjoyed it. There wasn’t really a moment, action or event that did not have a motivation. Although I don’t love Adelina’s character in all I did and could sympathise with her. My favourite character might just be Raffaele. Also there are scenes in this book that are really dark. At one stage I was reminded of Poison Study. Although there is something that nags me (I will say that the switching perspectives in TYE at least was not as pointless as those in Kimberley Derting’s The Pledge) is the switching perspectives. Adelina is written in first person while the others in third. I didn’t hate it but, well.
Overall, good. I want the next one!
**P.s.** Sorry it’s so short, I wrote it while on my phone in the car as mentioned above lol
