Although I only first picked this dystopian novel up for a class, I was stunned by how much I genuinely enjoyed it! As Lauren's world succumbs to environmental, social, and economic disasters, she brings a new perspective of radical change in order to survive that is powerful and eye-opening for even our world today.
Why would a murder mystery novel spoil the murderer's identity in the first chapter? I wondered the same thing, but after devouring it, I knew it could not have been written any other way. I loved flipping between the past and future, feeling the answers creeping closer and closer. A perfect YA mystery!
If you usually find romances boring or cheesy, with tropes being overused and characters falling flat, read this book!! It's the exact opposite of overused or flat. In fact, it's so good, you may yell at your mom if she interrupts you at the end... Don't trust me? Look at bookseller Kayla's shelf--she picked it too! Boom double recommendation.
What is a "perfect" life? Mia Warren and Elena Richardson have very different answers, and this disagreement unfolds in a novel full of unearthing secrets and challenging what family means. I was stunned by the end and couldn't wait to watch the TV show after!
