really liked it

I really enjoyed XVI, so when I noticed the sequel was available at the local library I put it on hold.

Nina might know the truth about her father--that he's alive--but life isn't getting any easier. Her grandfather's been arrested, her grandmother has a heart attack, and her boyfriend seems to be missing when she needs him the most. Not to mention that they get evicted.

At least her friend's family has offered Nina and her younger sister a place to stay. Determined to make a difference in a world where young girls are sexualised and the Media calls the shots, she wants to help an old friend. And joins the Sisterhood, hoping to make a difference.

A lot of stuff happens in this book, and most of it is bad. The world Nina lives in is bleak and definitely not female friendly. Some of the events are very disturbing, but true to the worldbuilding.

There are also relationship troubles for her to deal with. When her relationship with Sal starts to feel more like a title than a real thing and Wei's brother Chris starts to show an interest in her, she starts getting confused.

I enjoyed this instalment and am looking forward to the next one.
