DEFECTION

Bored High School SuperGenius

By Billy Higgins Peery, author of A Bad Idea

Apr 4, 2015: The story is very compelling: a high school super-genius keeps her identity secret from her parents and friends, while attempting to stave off boredom.The characters are interesting, the dialogue pretty nice, and there’s a good degree of suspense and world building.

Originally, there were a number of grammatical errors, but I talked to the author about those and they’ve been fixed. There are still some minor clunky bits (capitalizing "She" for "she said" when it’s placed after the line of dialogue), but it’s nothing too distracting. I think the balance between dialogue and action can be difficult, and it’s one of those things that you build an instinct for over time.

Anyway, I’m happy to give this my recommendation. If you enjoy super villain novels, this is one to check out.
