Book Review #70
Hidden Talents by David Lubar
Rating: two stars (out of four)

After being kicked out of every school he's ever gone too, Martin Anderson realizes that he's in trouble when he is sent off to Edgeview, an alternative school that is the place where they send the kids that nobody wants to deal with and have had the last straw. Martin doesn't know how he is going to fit into this school of freaks/regects and isn't sure if he even wants too.  Then Martin begins to notice things about his new friends that are a little weird...

This book was pretty interesting, I liked the premise and thought that it was a good idea, but it didn't flow quite as smoothly as I would have liked.  Parts of the novel were pretty riveting and I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know what would happen next.  At the end, I didn't feel this great satisfaction that I had just read a great book, but at the same time it wasn't a huge disappointment that I had wasted a couple hours.  It's kind of in the middle.  I'd be hard-pressed to recommend this book though.
