Blurb (from Goodreads):
Bodhi disappeared almost eighteen months ago. Eri has a new house and a new job, but she still can’t accept that he is gone. Her memories grow dim, however, and new friends make her mundane life almost comfortable. Then one day, while working as a food packager, she sees the secret symbol she and Bodhi shared drawn on a muddy delivery truck. He is alive.
After enlisting the help of Ben, a mysterious deliveryman who also knows Bodhi, Eri sneaks into the darkness of night. Finding Bodhi, though, means learning the truth about the world they live in. To face the truth, Eri must choose who to save and who to hurt. She never wanted to save the world, or start a revolution. But sometimes, to be with the one you love, you have to risk everything, even if it means losing yourself in the process.
My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars
“But a piece of her knew something was wrong, that today had not gone completely as planned for any of them, that they had set something in motion that was bigger than they could have anticipated.”
This was a YA dystopian sequel, about a girl trying to survive in a dystopian world.
Eri was once again a strong character, although she once again came across as a little naïve, not realising that her actions could have a much bigger impact than she expected.
The storyline in this was about Eri trying to find Bodhi after being separated from him for nearly 2 years, and then them fighting to be together, and to live in a better world than the one they lived in. I found the pace in this one quite slow, but there did seem to be a little more action than there was in the first book.
The ending to this was pretty good, and the epilogue wrapped things up nicely.
6.5 out of 10
