Genre: Young Adult Dystopia

I love dystopia, and this was no exception. This book rocked. It was a real surprise, this book. All dystopia are different. But this one was really pretty cool.

Zachary lives in the Underworld with his dad. He's always looking through trash trying to find stuff he can sell so that he can eat. One day he finds a communication device that is a diary of a girl called Rose. He's completely enamored by her.

He gets to meet her once, but he wants to meet her again. The Overworld is ordering the Underworld to evacuate so that they can expand. And Rose's dad is in the heart of the matter.

I loved the story. While it may seem a little hard to relate to a dystopian character, the author did an excellent job of connecting the reader to the story. I was really pleased with how the story turned out.

I think this was a really great read, with common conflicts that we still face nowadays like prejudice and poverty. Things you can see everyday in our world if you know where to look.

Synopsis:

Dirtying fingernails in sewers is fast approaching worthlessness for Zachary, a 16-year old Underworld scavenger. When footage of an Overworld girl, Rosa, is discovered, his intrigue heightens at why she expresses sadness with a lavish lifestyle.

In meeting Rosa, Zachary is scorned by her opinion of the deprived. She pities him and provides a means for them to communicate. With time, friendship and something he’s never felt grows; love for another human. Knowing Rosa calls him when it suits her isn’t enough; he wants to meet her, but how? Relationships in Underworld are few, let alone the impossibility with those above the ceiling.

Underworld will suffer when plans to conquer Jupiter’s moon, Europa move ahead. Worse is Rosa’s father, a disgraced Overworld ambassador, approving the plan.

Zachary must defeat the prejudice of the worlds, sneak within opposing forces, lose friends and challenge Rosa’s sadness. In doing so, a twisted secret is uncovered that may devour the reason he lives; Rosa.

In space, love had boundaries.

At a young age, his primary school teacher commented on his creativity and ability to tell stories. At the age of 29, during a night in the jungle, the bug inside awakened, and for the last 5 years he’s been sacrificing every second that he can to write. A veteran of writing festivals, a presence on Twitter and gobbling up all forms of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, he hopes he can bring a smile to others in the same way that he had, aged 5, reading with a torch under his duvet. Imran’s preferred genre is YA Sci Fi, and he has a tendency to throw a droid in every novel.

I love comments! So don't hesitate to share your thoughts. Leave your blog/website name and link so I can get back to you. And if you're a new follower, tell me. Note that this is an award-free zone. I loved getting awards and I was pleased you guys thought I was special, but I was nominated so many times and it took a lot of time to do the award posts, time that I don't have. So thanks, but no thanks.

Happy reading!
