Nicola Yoon caught our attention with her first novel, Everything, Everything. Since then, that novel has been purchased by MGM and is currently in production as a major motion picture starring the newly minted Queen of YA, Amandla Stenberg as Maddie. We received an advanced copy of this novel from the publisher and review it after the jump.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is a strong 4.5 for me. It is a feminist, gender-swap speculative historical novel that begins with Lada’s childhood and takes you to a certain point in her later life. Her relations and relationships are meaningful in the way that they are all personally meaningful, but they also provide the framework of her social-political life. It’s super intriguing to see childhood relationships build into politicking in young adulthood.

After my September debacle, I yet again promised to be more consistent for cover reveals (which I know I promise every other month or so when everything falls apart). But, while I was surprised to have almost 40 cover reveals in the entire month of September, there HAVE BEEN ALMOST 40 IN JUST THE FIRST HALF OF OCTOBER! So get comfortable, grab a cup of coffee and open up your Goodreads in another tab, your TBR is about to get a HUGE helping of AWESOME.
