  1. I was thrilled when a copy of this arrived in the mail during the week, and it sounds phenomenal. It sounds a lot like the indie book The Island. Same premise. The dialogue actually sounds really charming, almost like a child like wonder at discovering their new world. Brilliant review, really looking forward to starting this one.

    • Heading to Goodreads to look up The Island because now I want to read it. Although, now that I already love this one it probably can’t compare, but I’ll check it out anyways! Hope you get to start reading this one soon 🙂

  2. I had no idea this book was so serious. I always though it was a light summer read but I was wrong. I’m so happy to hear this and now I really want to read this book. Great review 🙂

    • The cover is gorgeous but it does make you think light summer read not deep serious story that will make you cry, haha. Now you’ll know more of what to expect 🙂 I hope you like it!

  3. So glad you enjoyed this book! I got a copy the other day and was excited. And there are times when characters… they just make you want to reach into the pages and slap or shake them! I don’t consider you a monster for that!

    • I’ve never felt bad for having those feeling toward characters before but since it was a grandmother I felt evil! LoL. Glad you could see where I was coming from 🙂

  4. So glad I read your review. I was putting together my new release post for tomorrow, and I have to admit, the description of this did sound … unusual, with all the characters called Sky and Ocean and River. But you have me more interested!

  5. I remember the cover of this being on one of your Breathtaking Book Cover posts. I had to look up what it was about and it sounded really interesting. I’m happy that you were able to read it and enjoy it as well. I like the idea of a reverse dystopian (that would be cool if that catches on). I’m sure I’ll be frustrated with how people treat Sky and River. I guess it’s a good sort of frustration since you cared about the characters more because of their situation? But yeah, there have been a few times where I wanted to hurt a character messing with my protagonist. Great review (:

  6. Wow! You make this story sound much more appealing than I originally thought it would be. I love that it struck something in you so deeply that it made you cry. I don’t cry for many books either (or movie and TV shows either) so I love when I have that emotional reaction. The use of simplistic language is a bold move, but it would definitely work for something like this. I know a lot of people get annoyed with things like that, but I think it adds to the atmosphere of the story.

I'd love to hear from you!
