Book Review of Anomaly by Krista McGee

Just finished reading Anomaly by Kristin McGee and I have to say I LOVED this book!  I found it to be different than your regular Dystopian novel, and really enjoyed this authors writing and approach.
This book is filled with non-stop action situations for the characters, the book keeps you guessing with a few twists that make this book very hard to put down!

After nuclear bombs destroyed the world from being habitable outside of contained pods, the world is now ruled by scientists.  This new mankind is forced by their creators to remove all brain functions that involve love, curiosity, the need to question authority, imagination and anything outside of government sanctioned daily life.  Those who do exhibit any of these or any type of questionable behaviors are referred to as an Anomaly and are disposed of.

Thalli is different, she has been an Anomaly her entire life, and she knows it.  She generally questions everything.  At a young age she watched a friend get taken and never returned to their pod.  So, aside from her best friend Berk.  Who is a scientist and also the only type of humans to be allowed freethinking.  Thalli has been alone and hid her anomaly from everyone else.  That is until one day when she accidentally makes an irreversible mistake.
Now, she is in a race against time and she can't tell the difference between what is real and what isn't.  New friendships and love begin to come into play, and she is having to learn the quick and hard truth about faith and all that comes with it.

It's no secret that lately I have really gotten into Dystopian YA Novels.  So when I came across the chance to review this book, I couldn't resist.  I was so happy that Anomaly by Krista McGee didn't disappoint!  In fact it was so good, I had a hard time putting it down one night for sleep rather than reading it cover to cover.  The only thing I dislike about these type of novels is, they have to end and I have to wait until the next book to find out what happens next.
I highly recommend this YA novel to anyone ages 14 and up.  I also feel this is one of those Young Adult novels that was written for adults like myself to enjoy as well!

  1. I'm 33 and I read YA all the time
    This one sounds interesting. I might have to ad it to my list of books to read one day.
