A classic waiting to happen?,
This review is from: Department 19 (Department 19, Book 1) (Hardcover)
When you've been hearing a huge buzz about a book for months before publication, it's a scary moment when you open the Amazon package. Will it live up to your expectations? Can it? I'm v. glad to be able to tell you that Will Hill's debut does. In spades. Not only is there absolutely incredible attention to detail, but it's also got amazingly realistic characters and a completely gripping plot. I'm still reliving every moment of Jamie's story! I also think it's a story that will appeal to adults just as much to younger readers - as long as you're not afraid of a little bit of violence, that is :) Honestly one of my books of the year - and has the potential to become a classic. Bring on the next one, that's all I can say.
