17-year-old Anthem Fleet has always lived in the shadow of her older sister who died. When she meets someone from the wrong side of town and falls in love with him, she feels like she’s finally found something just for her, when suddenly Gavin is kidnapped, and she’s expected to pay the ransom.
Can Anthem get Gavin back? And should she really try to do it on her own?
This was a really good YA sci-fi/dystopian, with some great twists, and I really enjoyed it.
Anthem was an interesting character. She had such a big heart, and such an ability to love, and somehow muddled through; even with all the pressure everyone loaded onto her. How she coped with being a prima ballerina, going to school, dealing with an utter turd for an ex-boyfriend, as well as all the less normal problems I really don’t know.
The storyline in this was really good, and I really liked the twists and turns. The pace was a little slow in places, but it didn’t bother me, and I was really desperate to find out what happened to Anthem. I did guess one thing that happened, but I didn’t guess everything else that happened as well!
The romance in this was pretty good, although there was a twist to that also.
The ending to this was really good. I liked the action, I liked the twists, and I’m really excited to see what will happen to Anthem in the next book!
Overall; Really liked this one!
8 out of 10.
