Publication date: January 5th 2021
Genres: Contemporary, Science Fiction, Young Adult

Eighteen-year-old Brooklyn never knew her father. Rex Blackburn died in the 9/11 attacks four months before she was born.

And even though she never met him, she always dreamed about what he must have been like before he died. In her mind, he was a hero.

Little did she know.

After an attack at a 9/11 memorial gala, Brooklyn learns her father had been a member of an elite, anti-terrorism, military task force, made up of a very select group of people who had superhuman abilities. On the day the towers fell, he died using his power to save people.

The Army believes she inherited his gift, and Brooklyn is invited to train at West Point in order to hone her skills. Knowing deep down she is different than anyone else her age and wanting to learn more about a father she never knew, she readily agrees to become a cadet at the prestigious military academy.

She and five other 9/11 babies strengthen their superhuman abilities and spend weeks preparing themselves for their future in the army, fighting terrorists at home and abroad. And in the process of training, they identify with their deceased parents in a way they never knew they could.

Brooklyn knows she’ll go to war someday, but when terrorists find out about the group’s gifts, they don’t bother to wait.

They bring the war to West Point.

This book starts out with a bang and grabs you from page one and forward. I love characters like Brooklyn, those who take you through the ride of their lives. We see how she learns that people with special talents exist and that her own father was one of them, also that she might be one of them too. I love that we learned this things with Brooklyn and what she feels resembles how anyone would feel if they get news like this, that made her a real full flesh out character and I loved it.

The plot here is pretty quick paced with some action, adventure, and a little bit of romance. Brooklyn was a great narrator too so you really see every character and their pov through her eyes.

The characters well good and you go to see their flaws and their own strengths. I really liked how they worked together and how in the end everything unfolded.

Becoming Brooklyn is a standalone novel that has all the potential to become a series and I really hope happens!
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5 stars
