Accelerated by Bronwen Hruska

The father of a third grader in a prestigious NYC private school finds himself pressured to do whatever it takes to keep his son from falling behind–but at what cost?

When I picked up Accelerated I thought it was going to be a horror novel and I was really, really disappointed to find it was a straight-up story about the dangers of medicating children for ADHD. I found it really preachy and not that exciting, plot-wise. It just felt very dated. I did think that the author has a great feel for complicated relationships, and that was what kept me reading.

Many thanks to Pegasus for the review copy.
