A motley crew of six emancipated teenagers living together in one house is a recipe for drama, drama, and more drama. Surprisingly, the six get along and manage to run their independent household successfully, at least for a time. Little do they know, one of their housemates is a spy, another, a potential murder suspect. When the harsh light of reality breaks into their false freedom, and the most innocent becomes the number one suspect in a murder case, everyone’s hidden truths come out. Who really is innocent, and is anyone really who they say they are? The first installment in a promising series, Emancipated is an engaging read for any reader.
The plot of this young adult novel is unique; the “puzzle” and the direction every twist takes engages the reader fully, leaving very few dull moments. While the pace of the read is a bit on the slower side, this novel promises to pick up speed in a future sequel. As for the situation Reyes puts the characters in, emancipation from their parents, it seems almost too good to be true; for those readers who enjoy dramatic, almost television-like plots, Emancipated is a perfect read.
