Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided...by your future self.
It's Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she's eagerly awaiting her vision―a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they're meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.
Or in Callie's case, a criminal.
In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo―a hellish prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes.
But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all—Callie, herself. (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of YA Bound Blog Tours.
This book was really intriguing and covered a lot of territory in a short period of time. I liked the slow reveal of how things operate in the Dystopian future, but once Callie was on the run with Logan it went a bit downhill for me. Everything about their relationship had a fast forward button on it. Callie was up, then down, then up, then down faster than I could keep up. The book describes what she’s going through, but the timeline felt too forced to me. I didn’t see enough content in their relationship to make it believable to me. I think if things had been slowed down a little bit and the book was slightly longer I would have enjoyed it more.
As someone who is big on taking action, I also found it incredibly annoying how many people just surrendered to fate. It’s interesting how Dunn makes this work into a twist towards the end of the book. I was surprised to see there’s a sequel and despite some of my hesitations on this book, I would definitely read the next!
Warning: Contains some violence
Rating: 3 stars!
