"A Class Apart" follows the events occurring after a tragic bus crash in which several students are hurt or dead. After waking up in the hospital, two of the students find themselves suddenly gifted with strange powers, enabling them to do powerful things. The teens struggle to control their powers whilst fighting against an outside force that seems to have taken over the hospital where they are trying to get better. Things peak when the Chief Officer in charge of keeping the accident victims safe suddenly seems to have become brainwashed and starts working against the very people he is supposed to be protecting.
I found this book very interesting. It is a clever mix of mystery and fantasy and the writer does an excellent job of bringing these qualities out. At first it seems as if there is a fight of good versus evil, but the twists in the book soon make you realize that what we may consider evil is not always evil. Though this book seems to have been written for young adults, any reader can enjoy its fast paced action. The vivid descriptions of the writer literally transport you into the world of the 36-floor hospital and you can easily see yourself enjoying it in front of a movie screen. The end left me begging for the next book in the series, with just the right number of questions left unanswered. I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to get my hands on the next one in the series.
