Thursday Thoughts



Julia Karr

Genre: Dystopian YA

In the future, the legal age is sixteen. To mark this event, everyone gets the required law-issued "XVI" tattoo on their wrist.

Most girls can't wait to be sixteen, to be legal.

Nina isn't one of them. There's a nagging voice in the back of her mind that constantly tells her something isn't right with the world and that she is different. But, she can't stop herself from turning sixteen and all she can do is hope that her life continues being as normal as it can be for the situation the world is in.

Then, with one brutal strike and life-changing event, Nina's normal life is shattered. She discovers that nothing she believed about her life is true.

This novel is full of very realistic politics, society, and technology. It makes you think. The plot is rich and wonderfully developed. The characters are realistic and easily connected to, and details are nicely done to provide great imagery. For me, this was more than just another entertainment novel... but an intellectual reading material as well. I highly recommend this.

4.5 stars


My apologies that it took me awhile to make a new post. I've been quite ill the past couple of weeks and then my laptop recently had a virus that put it out of comission for a bit until I could get it fixed. Things seem to be getting back in order now, though, I believe. I appreciate the patience. :)
