Well this book was amazing. I knew I wanted to read it soon, but I guess I just always never got to it. Now finally I have and this book is amazing. There are two characters, June and Day. Day is a criminal, and June is a detective leading so different worlds their worlds suddenly crossing paths. I love this batch of characters, this is literally my favorite book I’ve read this year!
Well this book is amazing. There was a bunch of plots twists that were amazing, although I saw one a mile away. The world building was good too, this is not your normal dystopian book. It is fast paced and does not have the normal or usual plot line for a dystopian story. This story is original and is a little like Les Miserables.
I love everything about this book the characters, the plot, the story it was all so amazing I have no words on how to describe to you this book!
