My Thoughts


While this is extremely well written, I just have a difficult time believing that society as a whole could get to this point; where they would rather give up on their troubled kids and essentially kill them.  Also, how could they ever think that harvesting organs from their kids for other people is a way for them to "live on"…the whole thing is extremely f*cked up.  And therein lies the rub…or the genius of this story…because if there is one thing it evoked in me it is feelings, all kinds of feelings.



That being said it did take about half the book before I felt truly invested in it, with a rather slow build.  The character development falling into that same vein, you're given just enough to slowly be drawn into this world, until you realize; your kind of hooked on their story…

Sex Factor:  No, not really.
