“I wish I could start over and read the whole thing again for the first time.”
Ascenders: High School for the Recently Departed is a young adult fantasy that will appeal to fans of Veronica Roth’s Divergent, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter, and C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia. It’s a book unlike any other that I’ve ever read, and I’d recommend it to anyone.”
