The Institute (The Institute #1) by Kayla Howarth (Review)

    In a post apocalyptic world where Defectives are rounded up and forced to live separate from society in unknown conditions, Allira Daniels will do anything to keep her family safe from the Institute. Specifically her  younger brother with the ability to see the future, labeling him a dangerous "Defective" to society.
     I actually quite enjoyed the narration of The Institute. The tone of voice was very effective in its story telling and consistent with the personality of the main character Allira. I did have some trouble with the commencements of the story because it did have a lul not far into the story, boring me a bit. The redeeming factor for it is that if the reader pushes through the lull, they will be a huge surprise/plot twist to come, making the wait worth it. The story its self is very interesting and touches the emotions of the reader very effectively at many different moments. Heads up, there is a cliff hanger ending! Be aware of that, in case you love or hate those. There is a sequel to this called Rebellion. I enjoyed The Institute and give it the rating of THREE AND A HALF STARS!
