"Mr. Sanders has written a book for young adults. I would have to say it may appeal most to pre-teens. It is written in a way that even the least sophisticated teenagers might find beneath their reading level. Most YA M/M novels are enjoyable for older teens and even adults, to a certain degree. I’m not sure what the author’s intent was, but Special Effect is, in my opinion, a book best suited to a pre-teen audience. The story itself has potential to be of interest to older teens and young adults, but as written, it is not a challenging read. A sixteen year old who is on grade level in reading would breeze through it in no time."
