I think it would be a huge understatement to say that I enjoyed this book. I absolutely love this story. You could say that I’ve gone “old world crazy” for it. I couldn’t put down this intelligent, gripping, dystopian YA science fiction thriller. I read it over just two days. I’m blown away by Alanah’s skill and talent for complex, imaginative world building, and the ability to create strong and realistic, relatable characters, all while weaving an intriguing storyline with a profound message. Alanah is an incredibly talented writer. Definitely one to watch! I look forward to reading more of her work. I gave it five stars only because I couldn’t give it more.
