I won this book as a Goodreads giveaway. As you can probably tell from my rating, I had some major issues with this book...

Let's start off with the biggest reason why I rated this book so low. In the letter from the author that accompanied the book when I received it it stated that the author set out to write a book with a 'strong, smart female version of Tom Swift'. While I haven't read the Tom Swift books, my main argument is with the first half of this statement, namely the strong and smart

Igist is a futuristic inspirational journey! What a fun way to
Challenge young adults to be brave, creative and use their talents for the good of others. The story is refreshing as it expands the mind and raises the status quote at every level. Well done L.S.Larson for creating entertainment that influences us all to be our very best! Aim Far!

IGIST’s premise alone was enough to grab my attention, but more than just a good story and characters, this book has a one-of-a-kind feature…It has an accompanying AR app. That’s right. You can watch this book come to life with Augmented Reality (like SnapChat filters) and turn your black and white illustrations into moving, colorful images on your phone!

I’m not going to lie, tech and gadgets are some of my favorite things and if I was rating the book on how well done and cool the app is alone…I

I won this paperback book and my 15 year old daughter read it before I had a chance. I encourage my children to read. It is a very easy task to get a child to read when an author like L.S. Larson uses talents to write this story. This is what my daughter had to write short and to the point
"I really liked the book. The characters were really interesting. I would definitely recommend this to another person.

This was a great book. I loved reading it and I truly felt the characters pain. But throughout the story there were times I wanted to smack her upside the head. I guess that's how most people feel with kids in any situation. But otherwise... great story!

**I received a physical copy of this book for free from the marketing team for this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.**

IGIST was such a fun experience! I received the physical copy, but I actually read most of the book on the app that accompanies the book. There was interactive parts of the books that made it a reading experience that I've never had before. It was super cute!

This book is such an inspiring story for young girls today interesting in STEM. Emi is 14, b

I won this book in a giveaway. So it pains me to give such a sad review... but:
I got 100 pages in and realized I didn't care about the characters or the story whatsoever. So.... there's that I guess. I appreciate what I imagine to be the author's intent with this book, but I need more than a good idea in a book. Full disclosure: I did not finish the book. I couldn't put myself through any more.

Entertaining, but quite shallow: the story could easily be narrated with twice more pages and go in depth to make the universe concrete. Liked the motivation of the author, though.
