First of all, I enjoyed the writing style in Academy 7. It didn't feel like the typical young adult book - the writing and vocabulary seemed more mature. I also appreciated the subtle building of characters through their actions and dialogue.

The futuristic setting at an elite school and the two well constructed characters, each with different histories, caught my attention immediately. Unfortunately, what goes on between the two of them takes up most of the story. I would have liked to understand more about their world, and to see further development/interaction with secondary characters. On the other hand, this book left me with a clear picture of the characters in mind. They felt very real, each with their own internal struggles.

As I was reading the last couple pages, I couldn't help but imagine a sequel. It seems like the perfect start to a new adventure, now that so much has been discovered. I would definitely not pass that up!
