“Nicole plowed ahead. ‘His advanced artwork is taking time from his advanced math so they’d like to give him extra help and maybe throw in some study drugs to get him up to speed.’”
Which is the problem statement, the thesis, of Accelerated. Which is itself at least two-thirds a thriller, and weird enough around the edges that it’s interesting, not rote. That said, I do wish Hruska had followed up on the scene where, after filling his son’s ADHD prescription but before beginning him on his dose, he takes a few of the pills. And then a few more. To accomplish his own advanced artwork.
