I enjoyed this book so so so much! I had high hopes and I wasn't disappointed in the slightest bit! After reading so many YA novels, it's nice to read something that is not only different, but something good.
At first I was worried if I'm a bit too old for the book, but no. People of all ages will be able to enjoy this book, no doubt about that. Erin Cashman managed to capture the combination of fantasy, suspense and romance. Everything was well balanced. There wasn't a single moment when you would think, “Please! Not this again!” Everything about it was unique and intriguing. I was hooked within the first five minutes.
Cambial Academy is fascinating and mysterious world that I would love to know more about. The characters are fabulous as well, especially Claire. I feel like I could relate to her in so many ways. She started as a insecure teenager who is always trying to fit in and measure up to her parents expectations. In most circumstances, I would find this kind of protagonist annoying and weak. Yet throughout the book, I see Claire as a strong, intelligent and independent character.
Overall, The Exceptionals truly is Exceptional!

The Exceptionals is captivating. Erin Cashman is in the same class as J.K Rowlings and
Suzanne Collins. I was drawn into the story. There are parallels to the Potter series and its pivotal moments and they done very well. Madeleine Lambert was a good choice for narrator, her performance adds depth to the story. I highly recommend this book.
