Spark by Brigid Kemmerer Book Review

Spark (Elemental, #2)
Sometimes he can even control it. And sometimes he can’t. Like the fire that killed his parents.
Gabriel has always had his brothers to rely on, especially his twin, Nick. But when an arsonist starts wreaking havoc on their town, all the signs point to Gabriel. Only he’s not doing it.
More than Gabriel’s pride is at stake -- this could cost him his family, maybe his life. And no one seems to hear him. Except a shy sophomore named Layne, a brainiac who dresses in turtlenecks and jeans and keeps him totally off balance. Layne understands family problems, and she understands secrets. She has a few of her own.
Gabriel can’t let her guess about his brothers, about his abilities, about the danger that’s right at his heels. But there are some risks he can’t help taking.
The fuse is lit…

After loving Storm so much, I was really excited to read Spark! Also, Gabriel was my favorite character, so I was really excited to see what his story would be like. 

In Spark, Gabriel has been having a lot of tension with different family members and getting in a lot of trouble. It was so cool to see the way he thought and all he went through. You really got to see his motivation behind everything he did. Also, he made some surprising alliances throughout the whole story :) The chapters alternate point-of-views, and the other point of view is from a girl- Layne. She’s a sophomore and has a pretty dysfunctional family. Her mom has left their family, and she lives with her dad and younger brother, who’s deaf. At the same time, people that don't like the powers the Gabriel's family has are closing in on them and therefore, a bunch of bad things are happening all over the town. 

Gabriel really started to find his identity and who he is. I know that sounds kind of cheesy, but he really does over-time. Layne, on the other hand, was the exact opposite of Gabriel, and I never would have thought they would be good together. They had great chemistry though, even if their relationship was not perfect. 

Also, the plot was amazing. I loved all the action and how all of the brothers worked together. The storyline was really interesting. Also, the inclusion of Layne in Spark was really cool and I liked her a lot as a character. I usually don’t talk too much about the covers, but I really liked Spark’s cover :)

Overall, Spark was an amazing book! I’d give it 4 1/2 out of 5 flowers and I loved Gabriel as a character. :)
