Very simplistically written, with lots of unedited errors, always frustrating. A very promising story, but just didn‘t follow through. The bad guys were very very bad and the good guys were very very good. Blah. The plot, setting, basic ideas, we‘re super – but the writing left a lot to be desired. YA. Dystopia. Setting: Southern California and Arizona 50 years from now.

JenlovesJT47 Hey! I‘m just wondering about the last two books I sent you for the Breakfast Book Club and if you received them and are going to send them to the next person. Haven‘t heard anything from you. Hope you‘re doing well! 🙃 1y
