Short Review: This book does a great job of setting up this world. Breaking down jobs, how school works, how naming and family stuff happens, but then that ending. I listen to this and when it ended, i honestly thought my app had just randomly stopped the book (it does that a lot, i hate it) so i went in and it was like nope sorry lady it's over! So that made me a bit mad. Otherwise a good story, i honestly didn't know there was a book 2 to this story. I do see how books today kinda took the same society from this and went with it in their stories, so that's interesting.




Book Boyfriend: N/A, a little too long for me.

Best Friend Material: The MC, but i think i would be a bad influence.
