In a couple of days, everything turned upside down in the life of Rebecca Hart. It begins with a day at the Reunion Square where she goes with her friend, Mehgan, to welcome her friends, Robert and Connor. They are parts of the navy, returning from the CAS Mackenzie. Just as they reunite with their friends, something unexpected happens that leads to other things. It's like a triple whammy. Will she survive it? Is Becky strong enough to handle all the disasters that come her way? Connor, a distant cousin of Mehgan, would be with Becky through it all as a case of coincidence.
The individuality portrayed by the lead character, Becky, was inspiring. She has inspired me to be strong in every circumstance I find myself in. Also, she values relationships in an inspiring way. This can be evident in her relationship with Tommy. It is amazing. It was well represented in every scene, even when she knew he was withdrawing. In our world today, siblings rarely share such a mutual relationship. Not only did Becky care about her brother, but she also cared for people around her. This part of the book portrayed the theme of relationships.
I had certain questions on my mind at the beginning of the book. They were all answered accurately through each line and chapter as I read through the book. The suspense that the story created from start to finish was amazing. The events were well arranged to follow each other. The words were appropriately explained in great detail to enable the creation of imagery, which didn't only help me understand the book but enjoyed it.
My opinion about the book is that it is a most wonderful read and I didn't dislike anything about the book. The title of the book is just perfect for the story. I didn't want the story to end. The book has a few grammatical errors that didn't disturb my reading experience. To my knowledge, it was professionally edited.
I rate Spark by Y. C. Leung 4 out of 4 stars. It is one of the best young adult suspense thrillers I have read in a while. The story of Becky wouldn't only entertain you. It would teach you life lessons. It would inspire and humble you. I recommend this book to readers who are keen on suspense and thriller genres. Younger readers who appreciate young adult novels would gladly embrace this one.
