“Circle of Five” is a great adventure and coming-of-age tale for all ages. The prologue starts the reader out with a fantastical scene and mystery all in one. The start of the book hooked me and made me want to keep reading just to find out how everything would tie together. The five teens represent a wide range of characters, each with their own personality that leaps off the page. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each one as the pages turned and the story progressed. Their first scene together in detention reminded me somewhat of an unusual twist on the “The Breakfast Club” crowd.
The plot itself is so interesting and I really want to say a lot about it, but I don’t want to spoil anything. What I can say is that the book took my imagination for a wild journey down roads I’ve never traveled. It is definitely a book you’ll want to read, and a great start to what’s sure to be a fantastic series!
