Last year, I had the pleasure of reading Rite of Rejection and finding a new author to add to my ever growing list of favorites.  But after devouring the story, I had questions in the end and needed to know more – more about what happened after the speech  – more about Rebecca, Daniel and Eric - just MORE.  Thankfully, Ms. Negovetich heard the pleas of her readers and has given us Rite of Revelation, and for this reader, I am ecstatic beyond words! 

So, was Rite of Revelation everything I wanted it to be?  Why, yes…yes it was, plus so much more! In Rite of Rejection, the story left off with Rebecca giving her speech across the hacked airwaves, and even though it left me with a feeling of hope for the people, there really was no closure.  I mean, did they escape? Did life get better?  Did the Cardinal finally get what he had coming? In this second installment of the Acceptance series, the author took the story to heights I didn't see coming and I loved it!  This is a story of hope, love, the desire to belong and the desire to change the seemingly impossible.  It is also a story of believing in yourself and doing what you feel is right despite what others might feel is wrong.  Most importantly of all, this is a story of the desire for something better, and along the way finding out that it was right in front of you staring you in the face.

From the start, the story grabbed my attention and held it until the very last page.  I loved all the characters, and really enjoyed witnessing their growth as they dealt with everything life was dishing out.  I became completely immersed in the world that the author has created and at times found myself holding my breath because things grew intense at times.  The writing flows almost effortlessly and the story line is one that is easy to believe. My only disappointment is now I have to wait for the next book to be released. 

If you are looking for a great read that is uniquely different and impossible to put down, then this series is one you will definitely need to check out especially if you like Young Adult Dsytopian fiction.

Sarah Negovetich knows you don't know how to pronounce her name and she's okay with that.

Her first love is Young Adult novels, because at seventeen the world is your oyster. Only oysters are slimy and more than a little salty; it's accurate if not exactly motivational. We should come up with a better cliché.

Sarah divides her time between writing YA books that her husband won’t read and working with amazing authors as an agent at Corvisiero Literary Agency. Her life’s goal is to be only a mildly embarrassing mom when her kids hit their teens.
