When Ally realizes what a momentous risk she has taken, only one person can save her from dire consequences – Luke, the exceptional boy who just attempted the same act. Big whatever his name was conveniently had been plotting the other big whatever’s demise and helped her. Another thing is the whole ORC thing yeah that was the worst part of the entire book. They really have no personality at all though I expect that to change in future books. There was a chapter that was so badly edited that it might as well have been missing for all the information it provided. Return to Book Page. Jess Petosa It is being released this Friday, the 29th.

I couldn’t get enough of Luke, and I was eating up every new detail I learned about him along the way! Because again, as I keep saying I am not into this genre. Aug 24, Frankie rated it liked it. I am really going to miss these characters. Oct 04, Vicky rated it liked it. I was glad she was not brought in to become a rival for Ally where Luke was concerned, because yes throughout this book I still rooted for Luke and Ally. Jul 15, Jasmine rated it liked it.

To give you an idea, an average YA adult novel is K words. I was intrigued by the book because I didn’t see what was coming next. This book follows two sets of characters in parallel to tell one story of hope and cooperation with many setbacks sprinkled along their path. I don’t know where things will go, but I’m so excited to read the sequel!!! Ally leads her friends through many unnecessary risks excwptional this novel in ways that are not always well planned out and some of which result in tragedy.

She is wrestling between being with her family and volunteering to move to the City, where she can work for the Exceptionals. I also didn’t like Ally’s reaction to view spoiler [ her mother’s death!


This bothered me so much upon realization. I never had a good visual image of anyone and I never felt the personality of the character. To view it, click here.


The adventure that they took us on as the group left Champagne and headed to the Southern City was made even better with the addition of Luke accompanying them. Or is this another instance where the author was unable to make anything more complex?

And some of his actions in general made me upset. Feb 26, Lori rated it really liked it. I am not sure if I will read the next book in the series or not. And how she goes about implementing this impossible goal is ridiculous. But I still understood that there are different areas of our country where black people are numerically the minority. Preview — Exceptional by Jess Petosa. Mar 13, Sfries rated it liked it Shelves: Luke is an Exceptional; a superior human being.

Maybe if I was African American, I would have noticed this sooner than the third book and I’m ashamed that I didn’t but Jesz can’t see how black people could not have easily been incorporated into this book. Not only had they created a super serum, but also an airborne In the future, things are anything but ordinary But, the rest was good.

I have nothing against you. Dude came off as more developed than Chick and he’s conflicted because he hates peetosa father but comes to realize that maybe he shouldn’t hate his father and his father’s motives. I did really enjoy that characters do a lot of growing and changing and the goals of the stories seem to shift more nationally then just personally. Even with Petosaa and Luke I didn’t feel much toward their relationship through out the book. I am really going to miss these characters.

Finally, I have come across a dystopian novel that does not just prattle on about how awful the world is for ten chapters and then toss in a mini-romance as an afterthought. The story was not really bad, but I would just petoosa a lot of other books before this one. She and the plot are awash with unrealistic, utopian ideology.

Thanks for telling us about the problem.

I was about to give this book 3 stars because of that place. They have powers and are stronger and faster than normal humans. But I got over it at the end and enjoyed the book.


Exceptional Series

Super good book This was recommended to me by a friend and I’m glad I took her advice to read it. I could totally see this on at the movies. The Ordanarys kinda lived in districts like the districts in the hunger games. Her main goals are laudable – to build a world where everyone works together and pteosa peace and good communication are established.

Ordinary (Exceptional, #3) by Jess Petosa

I really don’t recall a book ever reading so stiff, swries, and one dimensional as book one I really didn’t think this series could get worse from book one, but good lawd was I wrong!

She’s feisty, confident, brave, and just plain awesome! The decision is made for her when petoa wrong move has her being dragged into the city walls by the guards. Byseventy-five percent of the world’s population had perished.

Ordinary (Exceptional, book 3) by Jess Petosa

Get it free with day trial. You got to love that. They have this amazing chemistry that just draws you right into their romance.

First off, I love Ally! Jess Petosa resides in Indiana with her husband, three daughters, and two miniature long-haired dachshunds.

Not even slightly swoon-worthy imo. I thought this series was every bit as good as the Divergent and Hunger Games Series. I’m not saying that I’m an expert in genetics and science-y shit like that, but it just didn’t make much sense to me. Knowing that this was the first book in a series, I was expecting it to end somewhat resolved posing a few questions for the reader for them to be interested in reading the next novel.

I still would recommend reading it especially if you read and love the first two as much as I did.
