What a great little suprise!

I read the blurb for this and was intrigued, but really wasn't expecting too much. I was so wrong! Take away the futuristic setting and the fantasy elements and this is really a simple but powerful story.

Leah is a wonderful, strong ,generally happy person. She has loyal friends and a fulfilling career. However, her deepest desire is to be loved, and to build a family. Sadly, as wonderful and special as Leah is, no man wants to keep her. She is short, and fat and while

This was an unusual little post apocalyptic book. It is set a few years after an asteroid has hit earth. A community was constructed underground before the asteroid hit and there was a lottery to determine who went to the community.

What follows shows how to look deeply behind looks, attitude ...more

A solid romance with dystopian elements.
I didn't particularly care for any of the characters and didn't feel the emotion between them. I'm not even sure how I made it to the end - I actually stopped reading about 10 pages from the end and just went back and finished it now, weeks later. I don't think I've ever done that before.
