Sang Sorenson’s abusive mother is secure in a hospital, and her father has vanished to a new family of his own, leaving Sang and her sister to fend for themselves. Sang is hanging by a thread, and her only hope is a group of boys she feels she barely knows.
She’s never really alone. The Academy team has stepped in, promising to protect and care for Sang. Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North take over, showing Sang they can be depended on for anything. But just because the parents are away, doesn’t mean Sang’s life has become any easier.
The newfound freedom will have a higher price than any of them had imagined.
Principal Hendricks now wants to use Sang to exploit Academy secrets. Mr. McCoy has his own dark plans for her. Enemies are closing in. Sang will need to learn to believe in the boys, and the boys will need to learn to trust her if they want to survive their rivals.
And each other.
The Academy, Relentless Trust
Forgiveness and Permission’s plot has shifted its focus back to what is going on at the school. There were some scary moments and some creepy moments. I am disliking the Principal and Vice Principal of the school less and less. That being said, they were definitely making things difficult, but also interesting. I think that we are getting closer and closer to seeing why exactly the boys’ Academy group was sent into Ashley Waters.
Also, the tension is building between Sang and all the guys—even a bit with Mr. Blackbourne and Dr. Green. It’s a bit amusing to see Sang freaking out about it, but it definitely says something good about her character. She doesn’t want to lead them on, which is nice of her. On the other hand, the boys are struggling not to make anymore moves (as per the agreement that they came to). The tension was palpable in this installment, and I won’t be surprised if something interesting happens in one of the next two books or so.
In this installment, we finally see Mr. Blackbourne and other one of the guys trying to figure out if and how they can bring Sang into their Academy group. With the conversation in the last chapter, I am really interested to see how all of it will work out! This series is seriously addictive.
