Maddie lives in a world where everything is done on the computer. Whether it’s to go to school or on a date, people don’t venture out of their home. There’s really no need. For the most part, Maddie’s okay with the solitary, digital life—until she meets Justin. Justin likes being with people. He enjoys the physical closeness of face-to-face interactions. People aren’t meant to be alone, he tells her.
Suddenly, Maddie feels something awakening inside her—a feeling that maybe there is a different, better way to live. But with society and her parents telling her otherwise, Maddie is going to have to learn to stand up for herself if she wants to change the path her life is taking.
In this not-so-brave new world, two young people struggle to carve out their own space.
Another dystopian book. As you can see in my previous post, most of them are in same genre.
No excerpt yet. The website of the author also cant be found anywhere. They are probably preparing it.
From one book blogger who has read it, she said that Net Galley has this book. I think I am going to request it. I hope they will approve it. But will do it after I write the review of Risky Business.
I love it however feel little bit dreadful. Feel some darkness inside. Whereas it’s not shown up in its synopsis. XD
