I was going to wait until near the book's publishing date to post this, but it looks like a lot of people have already posted their reviews already. So, in honour of it being my blog's 6th blogsversary today, I wanted to share this review of the best book I have read so far this year.
I wasn't sure about this book even before I started to read it, but I was open to reading something new.

For those of you looking to read something different, this is a book I highly recommend. There's no main romance that distracts from the plot, and it's a type of Science Fiction that is more commonly seen in adult novels rather than YA, targeted to fit this new audience which couldn't have been an easy task to do.
Although I received a copy of the ARC from NetGallery, it wasn't until I got a copy in March's Fairyloot box that I actually got around to reading this book. Which was more due to a lack of time than anything else, because this was a book that I've been eager to read for a long time now. I really like stories about girls joining a man's world and proving their worth, so this book caught my attention straight away. And I was really impressed with it!
This book is important. It's part of the new wave of YA that's been released in the last few years exploring hard hitting issues that will broaden the minds of teens, and the adults who read YA alike.
