did not like it
bookshelves: fiction

I read this book because I enjoyed "The Giver" so much. Unfortunately, this was a disappointment. It was predictable, unimaginative, and unmoving. I didn't feel for any of the characters, who seemed written intentionally to tug at the reader's heartstrings. Unlike "The Giver," the plot points in this novel felt contrived and up until the very end I just didn't care what happened to Kira, or anyone else connected with her. A young reader might enjoy this, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.
PS- Nobody likes to read about people being brutish, base, and basically disregarding familial love as a way of life. It's depressing.
