My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Science fiction has become a genre that has captured my attention, and I often find myself reading more of these dystopian books. My fascination with these books seems to be growing due to so many elements ringing true and even being plausible. Genetic manipulation? It is a possibility, and the day it happens, I am out of here.
I appreciate the detail the author gave (her scientific background certainly helps in this area), and although there were points of boredom within the book, I thoroughly enjoyed the various scenarios and back stories as well as the premise.
This book seems to fit in the young adult genre, but I believe it would be more appropriate to place in the New Adult genre. Although this book features teens, I would not want my daughter reading it until she is much older. The profanity in the book is scattered throughout but still potentially offensive. There were no intimate scenes (thank goodness), but I feel the subject matter is beyond what teenagers should be reading. I feel the same way about the profanity.
Should this book ever become reality, I sincerely hope I am not around to see it. Fans of science fiction will certainly enjoy this book.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
