Miko Agnosta lives in a world where 13 year-olds’ futures are determined by a government machine. When his best friend Lok is banished, Miko begins to question the system under which he lives. His eyes are abruptly opened when he next meets Lok and discovers a forbidden world that he never knew existed. With his mind full of questions, which path will Miko choose to take? Who can be trusted? Is anyone telling Miko the truth?

I really loved the writing quality of this book – the good amount of description and action really kept me enjoying it. I think the fact that the books are released in such short chapters really makes you want to read more, it’s a very clever marketing tool!

So far, you can tell it’s either not on Earth, or a dystopian novel. Once a child turns thirteen, a symbol appears on their palm and it tells them what their future holds.

I think it’s a very original story so far, and I think that even though there’s only been around twenty pages, I can see Miko will be a very well developed character.

Chapters 1 and 2 Mini Review of Diary of a Mall Girl by Luisa Plaja

The mall is the heart of fifteen-year-old Molly’s suburban town. Most teens hang around with friends there, get their first job there, experience their first kiss there. And Molly? She actually lives there, in the complex’s residential wing. She has hundreds of the best shops and amenities right on her doorstep. But is living in a massive shopping centre as much fun as it sounds? Well, yes… and no. Find out the whole truth in Molly’s private diary…

I really love Luisa Plaja’s writing style! Naturally, because Molly lives in a mall (sort of) she has lots of exciting things happening. It’s classic Luisa Plaja, and the characters are all loveable, and well developed.

It’s full of fun, and it feels original and unique as well. I can’t wait to read Chapter 3! Possibly the best way to read a book, I think so!

Reviews of Soul Shadows by Alex Woolfe and The Soterion Mission by Stewart Ross will follow shortly!
