DTF ebook Reviewer, Danielle Ackley-McPhail

Reviewed for by Danielle Ackley-McPhail.

Boy, when Phoebe Wray does total domination, she does it right. And the other side of the coin? Why, rebellion, of course! (And that is equally well done, if not even better.)

Jemma is a nonconformist in a society where every aspect of your life is dictated virtually before you are born. She questions and doubts and wants to know why. By the time she's eleven, she starts to find out.

Sharp-edged and biting, this novel does extreme justice to the plight of freedom fighters throughout time. The reader grows up with Jemma and grows up fast. But don't mistake me here; this is not a world of black and white, and the realistic and hard look it takes at both military dictatorships and those that oppose them does more to reveal the inherent nature of humanity than anything else. Look close because you won't always see what you expect to.

I can't remember a more well-done novel. The tech, the attention to detail, the characters that latch on and won't let go even after you've turned the final page…I give this a 10 out of 10.
