Outstandingly written, with a concept that's absolute YA catnip. What kid growing up didn't want to form a secret society with their friends and go on important adventures? Jefferson Smith takes that childhood fantasy to the next level, giving his team a nifty secret clubhouse and daring exploits in defense of the kingdom.
Brotherhood of Delinquents captures the teenage years and their tension between "everything is new and exciting and full of possibility" and "holy crap, I'm not the person I'm supposed to be and I don't fit in anywhere." The writing style is mostly clean and direct, focused on telling a fun story in a clear way. But sometimes the book manages to be something a little better, something more polished and captivating, evoking a sense of warm nostalgia for things that never actually happened to me. Which is pretty gor-ram impressive, if you ask me.
Smith also nails something which so many fantasy writers botch: in-world slang, idioms, and aphorisms. They're not laid on too thick, they are usually comprehensible on the first mention, and they just have the right sound to them.
So if you want to join a trio of wayward youths on a grand, rollicking adventure, or if you want to feel nostalgic for the teenage years you only wish you'd lived, pick up Brotherhood of Delinquents by Jefferson Smith.
