What a rollercoaster ride Pearl's Number takes us on! I was impressed with all of the worldbuilding and political/moral dilemmas encountered throughout Evie's journey. I LOVED the two parallel romance subplots that went their own paths and were weaved perfectly amidst the action and tension of all the fight and escape scenes. The first half was a little slow, as there were a lot of chapters that ended with the characters falling asleep and the next chapter they'd be waking up, but that quickly w ...more

This is definitely an interesting series! I think it's appropriate for younger kids (8-10 y.o.) because the writing is more simple. There are also a couple of plot points and the way the main characters think sometimes just isn't fleshed out well. That aside, I did enjoy it (the overall plot was excellently done and it's definitely something I wish I'd read during elementary or middle school) and I think I would've loved it even more if it had been fleshed out more and edited better.

This sequel of Bethany Atazadeh’s debut novel was filled with adventure, shock, intrigue, and even a little bit of romance.

Bethany did an amazing job helping the reader connect personally with each character. Just like Evalalene’s Number, Pearl’s Number is written in third person but chapters are broken up by the viewpoints of Evalene and Jeremiah. We see these characters develop further by not only getting an insight into their thoughts and emotions, but also getting to see them through each o

Shortly after finishing Evalene's number, I had to pick up the sequel. Be sure to check that out aswell.
As always my reviews will no contain spoilers!

While the beginning of the story struggled to hook me straight off the back, unlike Evalene's Number did, I still thoroughly enjoyed the book. The twists and turns the author takes the characters (and us the readers) on are exciting, you feel immersed within the story and their world.

There was two parts of the book that I did guess before they ha

I got an ARC of this book, but it doesn't officially release until 11/13/2018.

Pearl's Number is the second book of the Number series, and you're probably here because you read Evalene's Number. Evalene leaves Eden, the setting of the first book and goes looking for her mother Pearl in the Divided States. Pearl was a rebel in the Bloom Rebellion, but when the rebellion was quashed, she had to run for it. That's why Evalene got the number she got: her mother's a renegade!

This book reminded me of L

I read the first book in this series recently and was super excited to be able to pre-order Pearl's Number. I read it almost as soon as it was out, and I was so happy with where the story started. It picked up with Evalene and her friends about six months after the first book ended. With the knowledge that her mother is alive, what can she do but go look for her. The story was a page-turner, bringing you from chapter to chapter, wondering whether she and her friends will survive, if love will bl ...more

I think book one was a little better than this one. I got lost in the landscape and it was less interesting than the first, but I can see how Atazadeh's skill as a writer is developing. I'm looking forward to picking up more of her books in the future.

As Evelene takes her place in reforming Eden's government, she learns a startling rumor: her mother may be alive in the Divided States. Slavery is alive and well and some are sacrificed to benefit the vanity of others. In a quest to save her mother

Its not often that I read a book in one day. When I do, that can only tell you one thing it's amazing. From the moment I opened this book I was hook. Bethany did an amazing job creating this world making it easy to see in my mind. The twist and turns in the book are amazing and left you guessing with an unexpected but emotionally beautiful ending. Well done!

Pearl’s Number was such an exciting read! Author Bethany Atazadeh’s writing really shined in this sequel, completely pulling me in and transporting me into one of the most thought out and intriguing worlds I’ve read. From the plot, to the setting, and to the characters everything was fascinating and fun to read. I seriously can not recommend “The Number Series” enough!!!

A little too much focus on the budding romances of the characters for my taste, and in that way I enjoyed the first book more... but that said, it was an interesting story with and ending I didn't see coming. The pacing was fast and engaging.

Read in 3 days flat, again.

Just like with her first book when I started reading this I had not completed a full cover to cover read in over six months… This story pulled me in so quickly I read the whole thing in three days! Can’t wait for the third… there better be one.

This book had just as much going on as the Evalene's Number and was non-stop from beginning to end. I really enjoyed all of the various twists and turns in this story and to FINALLY get to see all the love interests get somewhere! If you enjoyed the first book, you need to check this one out.

OMG. Bethany did an amazing job with this one! I know sequels are so hard to write, but this one kept me entertained, reminded me of the original story with just enough detail where I didn't get bored and kept me enthralled the entire time! I could NOT put this one down. I HIGHLY recommend.

Pearl's Number is amazing. I was hooked from the beginning. I wasn't expecting half of what happened either. This series is definitely a must read.

This is the second book, and the final one, in the Numbers duology.
I can see the growth in the authors writing style and voice, and this book tossed in some loops that I didn't see coming. Which I appreciate, being a well-read person!
I'd recommend this to anyone who loves dystopian, although it's not the normal type for the genre.
I appreciate that it pushes the genre molds here and there.
I also REALLY loved the slow burn romance, and when I say slow...I mean SLOW! It was wonderful to see that
