Review from the USA, April 30, 2023
Magen Gilbreath on Amazon, 4 of 5 stars
I read mostly YA fantasy and YA dystopian but I decided to give it a try to get out of my comfort zone a bit. I am glad that I did so.
This novel is an easy read, though it isn’t a short one (for me, at least), and the topic is thought provoking. It is easily relatable in today’s world: How far is too far with our dependency on technology and what could the possible consequences of that dependency be? The plot isn’t something that seems like it couldn’t ever happen and that hooked me in. The main characters are enjoyable and I always enjoy a story where there is a main character who isn’t a damsel in distress but instead takes steps necessary to save herself, or works in collaboration with others to save many. Without giving any spoilers, there is some good foreshadowing in the story and it was fun to notice them and then realize my predictions were correct later on in my reading.
My only warning for this book is that there are mentions of SA, so a content/trigger warning is definitely needed.
