As Kendall is drawn in deeper he finds himself in a situation he can't escape and its up to his brother Justin to protect him.

Awestruck

After being a huge fan of SA Partridge's debut book, The Goblet Club, it was with huge excitement that I got hold of her second one, Fuse. Let me start by saying that I enjoyed The Goblet Club to no end, as I love her writing style, her pace, her descriptiveness, her character understanding, so I had very high hopes. Those hopes actually fell short of the real thing, which they most often don't. I finished Fuse in literally one-sitting, and simply couldn't stop until it was done. She has a way of writing that keeps you wanting more and more, and when she delivers, she delivers perfectly. This book shows huge insight into a controversial topic at the moment, as well as insight into friendships, mentors and rebellion, with a perfectly-weighted local, real-world touch, and is an absolute must-read. I don't think I count as a "young-adult" anymore, but I would recommend this book highly for anyone who enjoys being entertained, informed and to be left desperately wanting the 3rd release from SA Partridge. Congratulations are due to the author, as is a deep recommendation to other readers out there to get your hands on Fuse as soon as you can.
