I was disappointed with this book. There is some great dialogue between Easter and her friends but I felt the author skimmed over this tale. A few of the scenes felt rushed. The whole thing with her mother felt forced and the revelation at the ending of the story was predicable.
I wanted to know more about the academy. Unless there's another sequel?
Sensitive is a worthy follow-up to the excellent Homefree. If you haven't read the first one, do so immediately! Then pick up Sensitive in time for Halloween. A good Fall title to curl up with for those longer chilly nights...
The thing was the story never let me in. The writing told me that Easter and Cal had the hots for each other and that Andrew was somehow more endangered by his abilities than the other two, but those things never really hit me. I never felt the passion or danger. I feel like lately I'm always asking for longer books. I'm not sure why this is the case. It takes a lot to create fully developed characters and have them burst forth on the page for your reader, living and breathing and calling out each other's names. Some authors are able to do this on a small page count. Their stories leave me satisfied instead of aching for more. Meg Rosoff, Garret Freymann-Weyr, and Laura Wiess leap to mind. Others simply require more pages. I felt like SENSITIVE could have benefited from a few (maybe 100) more, along with a little more willingness to let the reader in and feel with the characters. At the end of the book, I felt like I'd just gotten home from one of those freshman year college dates with the guy who begins every sentence with the words, "I'm the kind of guy who..."
Stop right there. If you have to tell me, it's all over.
Ms Wright has woven a compelling story that will appeal not only to teenagers, but to anyone who has ever BEEN a teenager.
This sequel to "Homefree" once again takes us into a world that we know, but don't know. We all know the feelings of adolescence that make us know we are different, and insecure, but we don't know how it feels to be able to astralproject, read minds, move objects with our minds, and generally create mayhem on accident. In both novels we are brought into this world, and made to understand how the teens years would feel if you really WERE a "freak", not just thinking you were.
A great read for anyone from 12 to 92!
