Couldn't put it down. It sucked me in and kept me guessing.

I really enjoyed the book....I fell in love with the characters, and the story.
I read some of the reviews at first and I was nervous to read it - but after I read the great review on oninebookclub - i decided to buy it. The book was clear and concise , the authors had me wondering where the story would go and what was going to happen next - and the cliff hanger has me waiting for the next book with abated breath. Well done to the authors on this good read!

So Another one of my daughters book, she insisted I read.

The book was definitely for a younger audience, however It reminds me a lot of the twilight series, with the same set up between the characters, and triangles. I'll give the second book a glance when my daughter gets it, just to find out what happens.

Great Young Adult novel.

This book is a two-author collaboration by L. M. du Preez & Z. Labuschagne, with each author writing from the view-point of the two main characters, Poppy and Mila.

The two girls have been life-long friends, but have drifted apart in recent times and are looking to catch up when Mila arrives from New York to visit Poppy in California. They meet at a night-club called Synth and Mila is amazed to see the change that has come over her friend. Poppy confides that she is attracted to Loch, the

When I read the synopsis for this book the idea sounded intriguing. The execution of the idea however, fell a little short. The writing was so-so. Throughout the book this mysterious "procedure" that gives you instant success is mentioned, and tasks have to be completed to be accepted but everything is so vague. At the end of the book there is some attempt at explanation but it is vague as well. Then.....cliffhanger. Sorry, didn't grab me enough to make me want to find out what happens. I'd give ...more

I'm sorry to say that this book was a disappointment. I bought it--and the sequel--after enjoying du Preez's two novels immensely. This, however, lacked strong characterisation or a good narrative arc, has a non-ending, questions are never answered, and everybody in the book is straight-up petty and unlikeable. I actually wish I hadn't already purchased the sequel, as I have no intention of reading it.

1.5*

This was ok, not brilliant but it still had me intrigued as to how it all would play out. Not sure I want to know enough to buy the next one though.
