The Institute By Kayla Howarth Book Review

Pages: 280

Publish Date: January 7th 2015

My rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Blurb: Allira Daniels will do anything to keep her Defective brother safe from the Institute. They claim to protect Defectives, but it’s human nature to fear the unknown. Defectives are dangerous, they possess abilities that no human should be able to. To Allira and the rest of her family, the Institute seems more like a prison than the safe-haven they promote themselves to be. Protecting Shilah from that fate is their number one priority.

When Allira stumbles across a car crash involving two of her school classmates, she ignores all of her father’s warnings of laying low and not drawing attention to herself. By doing so, she may have just caught the eye of the Institute. She’s not Defective, but what seventeen-year-old girl has the ability to pull two teenage boys away from a fiery rubble and walk away without a scratch? It would definitely be seen as suspicious.

Allira and her family need to make decisions. Do they stay, or do they flee again? Will they be coming for her? Will her whole family come under investigation? Will they discover Shilah and his ability to predict the future?


My Review : This was an amazing book with so many twists and turns, i never knew what was going to happen next.

I loved the idea of the institution and how kids are being brainwashed somehow. Sounds like something that would happen in the future.

There was one huge plot twist which shocked me and i never saw it coming.

I could not put this book down as i wanted to know what the ending would be and what an ending it was.

I loved the writing, it flowed nicely and kept you hooked.

The author really captured my emotions and attention and i cant wait to read more books from her.


I hope you enjoyed this book review, if you did please leave a like. What do you think about my new review page set up? Let me know in the comments and i will see you in my next blog post
