Aversion by Kenechi Udogu
For Gemma Green’s first time, things should have been straightforward. Find your subject, hold their gaze and push a thought into their head to save them from future disaster – Aversion complete. A pretty simple process given that the subject was to have no recollection of the experience. But Russ Tanner doesn’t seem to want to forget. In fact the more she tries to avoid him, the more he pushes to get to know her. Gemma knows she has a problem but is she facing the side effects of a failed Aversion or has the school’s tennis champ really fallen for her?
Rated 5 stars
Aversion is a YA paranormal which follows int he eyes of sixteen year old Gemma Green.
This book is certainly a page turner. The only reason I put it down was because I have to deal with responsibilities and life.
There was barely a moment I didn’t want to know what happened next right from the get go. It progressed perfectly right up to the dramatic ending when Gemma obtains a glimpse of what what shes really capable of. It is followed by a clear intention of a sequel, which I was quite pleased about. I would like to read more of this series.
The only real criticism I had was that the novel was too short. I got through it quickly because it’s closer to a novella size than a novel. It’s only 133 pages.
In saying that the criticism was such a minor aspect It didn’t really bother me. Some books just work if they are shorter and being short had no impact on the success on the story. In comparison to the way the whole book flowed from start to finish and kept me interested the entire time a short novel seems irrelevant. It is that reason that I give it 5 stars. It is rare that a book can hold my interest the whole time and Aversion failed to disappoint.
I would recommend this book to any YA fan. It’s a page turner and a great story.
