The novel, through its interesting storyline, tries to give a number of good lessons for life. Just like the fact that we all have been bestowed with numerous wonderful gifts, all we need to do is to identify them and perfect them. Also, that life is not always as it appears to be.
Lexi’s life resembles a great deal with J K Rowling’s Harry Potter. Both are stories of orphan kids who had special powers but did not know until they were told so. Both had had admiringly affectionate parents, were now living at their aunt’s place and had friends play a huge role in their lives. The ‘Facility’ and the ‘Commission’ in this book bear a stark likeness with the ‘Ministry of Magic’ of the Harry Potter books and both were kept as a secret from the normal world, ‘muggles’ of the latter and ‘norms’ of the former.
Overall a pleasant and a clean book, an interesting pastime read.
