What would you rate this book: 4 out of 5 stars
The book was hard to follow at first, but was very interesting and intense towards the end.
This book is definitely for teens and young adults. The book has mature content (language), but is not mature enough to be an adult book, or one that an adult over 30 would probably enjoy. The book is set about 100 years, or so, in the future. All of the characters are connected by a social media chip, called the feed, that is placed in there head at or around (usually) birth. In this book, the protagonist, Titus, and his friends go to a party where he meets the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen. The group quickly becomes close friends with the girl, named Violet. Soon after they meet her, they all go to a party that is on the moon. At the party a man hypnotizes a few of the young teens. They all go to the hospital and learn that nothing is wrong. Later on, the reader learns that Violet was permanently affected by the hypnosis, and there is nothing Titus can do for her. The book is about his struggle to figure out how he feels about Violet and the thought of her dieing, and Violet’s struggle with the disease she has and planning the rest of her life.
Why do you or don’t you feel that others should read this novel?
I think others should read this book because it’s a short book that someone can read in under a week. Its cute and is not followed by another book or have a movie.
