Read in May, 2012

In The Exceptionals, Claire has hidden her antipath talent (communicating with animals), until circumstances force her to reveal her ability. This book has a little bit of everything, the evil scientist with crazy abilities, family drama that evokes memories of dealing with my own siblings, and a fierce, stubborn heroine who fights to save her school and its inhabitants.

I think it was Juju at Tales of Whimsy who posted about the trend of kick-ass females in young adult literature and I have to say, I do agree. I love how Claire doesn’t take no for an answer, fights for her friends and family and maintains her integrity. There is a bit of a love story, but The Exceptionals does not dwell on it, nor on the possible love triangle that develops.

And, it kind of makes you wonder ~ is there really a school somewhere that trains students to use their own psychic powers?!?
