The ExplosionistThe Explosionist by Jenny Davidson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Set in the Scotland of an alternative universe, this is a YA novel about a 15-year-old girl who learns terrible secrets about her government and its plans. While the world and characters are interesting, there is just too much going at once. There is the establishment of this alternate world, a murder mystery, a coming-of-age story, terrorist plots, government conspiracies, and Sophie's discovery of her ability to speak with the spirits of the dead. While it reads quick and the characters and story are interesting, there's so much going on that it's hard to grasp everything or get caught up in any particular aspect of it.
