Review: “The Assassin Game” by Kirsty McKay is a novel mixed of mystery and school life. When I first got the novel, I thought it would be more like a novel full of assassination and crimes. However, the author made it less bloody by faking these killings, and added more emotions and love storylines to the novel. It was out of my expectation, so I gave not a very high rating, but on a more subjective point of view, the setting of the novel is quite interesting, and the Game do give some sort of intense moments and draws reader’s attention quite well. As of the characters, I like Vaughan a lot, not only because he’s a smart guy, but because he’s a guy with stories. That’s the most attractive part of this character, in my opinion. It is overall a great novel, but maybe for kids of a younger age, maybe about Grade 7-9, because sometimes I, as a Grade 12, do feel like it’s a bit childish in some way. I would recommend this book to be published, and wish the author best of luck.
