For fans of The Giver, a futuristic thriller with a diverse cast.
In Thalia's world, there is no more food and no need for food, as everyone takes medication to ward off hunger. Her parents both work for the company that developed the drugs society consumes to quell any food cravings, and they live a life of privilege as a result. When Thalia meets a boy who is part of an underground movement to bring food back, she realizes that there is an entire world outside her own. She also starts to feel hunger, and so does the boy. Are the meds no longer working?
Together, they set out to find the only thing that will quell their hunger: real food. It's a journey that will change everything Thalia thought she knew. But can a "privy" like her ever truly be part of a revolution?
So, so amazing.
I honestly thought this was one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s one of those types of books that you either love or hate. For me, I love it. There are so many twists and turns, I even went out and bought the book in physical form. So I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who likes twists and turns.
I personally loved this book, although the ending sucked. Not that it was poorly written, it was just an ending you wished you could know more about.
This book keeps you guessing and waiting for their next move. Definitely recommend.
The plot was fantastic, with enough twists and turns to keep me interested but not too many to where I'd be confused. The world tar swain built is incredible. It's realistic and believable, and is described just enough.
