The book Release was truly amazing!
Release was a fantastic novel which showed us the life of 17 year-old Adam who was going through a point of struggles in his life. It was extremely emotional and I felt his pain the whole way through. This was a good aspect the writer used because the audience could be put easily into his shoes and it allowed us to have a deeper insight to his character.

There wasn't a big story-line through out it but it constantly kept me gripped anyway. It had a fairly fast-pace flow but some parts could drag on. The second-part to the book (the parts written in italics) were confusing for a majority of the novel and even when you find out how they link at the end, it felt unnecessary. However, it was a nice touch to the book which left me guessing and turning the pages to find out more.

My favourite character was Angela -Adam's best friend-because in my opinion, she was the voice of wisdom and gave many positive messages in the book. In addition, she was a kind and understanding character who showed empathy and compassion when he felt lost and unsure.

Overall, the book was great and one I would recommend to people who like to read realistic books. This is definitely for mature teenagers aged 13+. I would rate it 3/5 stars!
