Review: Select

Title: Select

Author: Marit Wiesenberg

Release Date: October 3rd, 2017

Rating: 3/5 Stars

My Thoughts: I chose to read and review this book because the premise was fascinating. Super humans hiding among normal people and trying to stay hidden. These ‘select’ people have issues among themselves and the main characters family life is anything but happy. There are two main groups of teens in the story, one is a group of outcasts and troublemakers and the others are the “chosen” ones, being trained to use their special abilities. All of this sounds fascinating right? It should have been. Alas, the book doesn’t quite live up to its potential. I wanted more of the super powers and more adventure. Instead the main character is forced to leave her private school and attend public school as punishment and falls in love. Not a bad progression in the story but that became the focus of the story and I was really hoping for something else. Now that being said, the writing was good and the premise was a good one. I am really hoping that book 2 might pick up so I will likely give this author another chance.

*I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*
