The Boy Who Knew Everything by Victoria Forester
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This had some odd pacing issues: slow at times (like when the group is at the farm, training) and then very fast (like the "miracles"). Maybe some editing would have worked, giving us a tighter book? The boy in question, Conrad, is part of a prophecy that is mentioned but not stressed and that also felt like something wasn't quite right. However, the target audience probably won't even notice. Instead, they'll enjoy the two worlds that are presented and wonder if they, too, could be as exceptional.
