How will it turn for these young teens?

Was it all her fault?
This book kept me on edge the whole way through, reading vigorously for hours waiting to see what will unfold. The prologue definitely did a fantastic job into hooking the reader allowing the readers to dream big and agonisingly wonder and impatiently wait to find out what really happened! This book definitely took me on an intense emotional roller coaster through drama, relationship fall-throughs and the constant use of admirable technology of the future.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, giving it the 5 star rating! This book was recommended to me by one of my friends and I definitely don't regret reading it! I would recommend it to readers 14 and above as it does include some drug use exc... If you are a fan of romance and drama all mixed in one with a touch of scifi this book it a definite must! Yes, the ending and the lead up can be considered as a long step towards the sequel but I do definitely think that the ending still flowed well...
I'm looking forward to what happens next in the sequel coming out later this year!!!
