    This book was awesome It reminded me of She's the Man I had everything that I like in a book romance science fiction and fantasy The characters were well written; in the beginning I didn't really like North because he was really mean to Kristina AKA Kris but after knowing his background I started to like him Kristina was a strong

    To start the author has decided to set the story in the future and in space a bizarre choice to say the least I actually thought it was really unnecessary I mean she had a lot going with the idea of a girl going into an all boys schooloh well

    Welcome to a hard review for me THE ACADEMY is basically a futuristic version of TWELFTH NIGHT or for the non Shakespearean fans SHE'S THE MA

The AcademyWhere things are not always as they seemMy name is Kris Jameson and I’m a student at the Royal Academy I’m at the top of all my classes what they call a “model student” There’s only one problem the Academy is an all boys school and I’m a girlIt started as a prank when I took my brother’s p Actual Rating 35 starsI can see myself as a teenager absolutely loving this book I wish I could have read it back then it would have been one of my favorites so I am giving it 4 stars mostly to honor that Right now I see many places where the story could have been improved made dramatic and angsty some miss opportunities to make the story engaging But overall it is an entertaining and enjoyable story and I uite liked it

Fraud at this exclusive school is much worse than simple expulsion I could lose a hand Worse so could my beloved brotherWith so much at stake it’s imperative that I keep my secret safe And the person I’m closest to North is the one I have to be most wary ofThe trouble is I think I’m falling in love with him Welcome to a hard review for me THE ACADEMY is basically a futuristic version of TWELFTH NIGHT or for the non Shakespearean fans SHE S THE MAN starring Amanda Bynes which I love to pieces don t you say anything bad about it The thing is that aside from some cool tech mentions and scifi trappings Andrews made Kristina our main character come from a province that adheres to Victorian principles They re even referred to that way Modesty chastity women can t do cool things like fly a ship women are the property of their fathershusbands etc etcThis felt a bit like a cop out to me I can see why Andrews would go this route it set groundwork as to why Kristina and her brother Kristopher would trade places why they would risk so much why they felt there was no other viable option Later when Kristina is in the Academy it gave her an easy excuse as to why she didn t want to undress in front of guys or take showers with them or spoke so formallyKris s roommate and love interest North comes up with half a dozen different reasons reasonable and otherwise why Kris would be so reluctant to behave like the other guys All of which she insists repeatedly aren t true I feel like one of those options would have been preferable to simply reading over and over again that she was embarrassed and modest There s also the matter of how same sex relationships are handled in the book Its an all boys school with a don t ask don t tell mentality A couple characters are clear on gay Wilkinson Kris only friend or less and Kinky Hinks assistant to the Headmaster Both come off initially as being predatory but later actions prove them to be otherwise Still a bit too stereotypical for me thoughAs is common in these stories the love interest finds himself reluctantly falling in love with our heroine and wrestling with the fact this previously Manly Man is intowell guys or a guy at least No one knows of Kris ruse and there aren t any women to try to wrestle North away from her so instead we re dealing with North s past Its a hard past and one that Andrews handles carefully I did rather find view spoilerthe entire subplot of being sworn brothers to be the most far fetched thing ever created and it did not make me think well of Kris intelligence that she was THAT gullible hide spoiler

Lace But things got complicated when I caught Broward the school bully in a compromising position They got even worse when I was assigned my roommate the handsome but enigmatic North who saved me several times from the bully’s attacksNow the conseuences of my deception are coming back to haunt me The penalty for Take Alanna 5 stars Take out all the worldbuilding 1 star Take out all the plot 1 star Fill in all that space with crushes and romance and swoon 1 star The Academy is roughly what s leftWhat a disappointment The premise is that the heroine takes her brother s place at a uasi military academy because she doesn t want to get married yet and he doesn t want to fly spaceships Okay so far so good The charactersAlthough there are a handful of side characters only four characters get any real spaceKristina aka Kris Masuerading as male which mostly means binding her chest and gasping that she can t possibly be expected to shower with other people and screaming for help every time somebody threatens her physically Mind nobody ever actually does guess her secret but they do all think she s flamingly gay Of course everyone here seems to think everyone else is flamingly gay soNorth aka Loverboy uite entertaining initially because he found Kris so obviously irritating Has a tortured soul Wins points because when he falls for Kris he fairly uickly and uietly gets over the fact that Kris is he thinks maleThe bully whose name I have already forgotten but who is conveniently often referred to asyou guessed it The bully Can t you just see Kris s self righteously indignant pout Wannabe rapist maimer and murderer Literally tries to do all three at various points in time Zero characterisation beyond BadThe gay best friend whose name I have also already forgotten Unlike Kris actually is flamingly gay Doesn t really have a personalityrole beyond that which is probably why I don t recall his name But what happens you sayWell despite not having any formal education and being put two grade levels ahead of where someone her age should be Kris immediately aces all her classes except gym which despite the vaguely futuristic setting they re all living on moons and so on literally consists of things like dodgeball and basketball and once that s settled we pretty much never hear about classwork again because she s too busy being in love with her roommate There is romance There are minor shenanigans related to her being secretly female There s a bully And there s romance That s it That s it you say But what about the plot Surely there s some kind of intergalactic war brewing or somethingNope Well collaborative efforts as part of their training to become starship captains Scenarios where they re tearing around the moon in their spaceships Intense physical trainingWere you not listening when I said they played dodgeball At least some kind of uest or thing to accomplishThere s a penis obsessed bully to be vanuished There s love to fight valiantly but ultimately succumb to There s angst and soul wrenching guilt or something like that rightIndeed I should not have read this on a day when I had no caffeine
