Thalli is back in the second book in the Anomaly trilogy and the Scientists are still on her trail. After finding their way to the surface Thalli, Berk, Rhen and John find themselves on a 900 mile trek across what used to be the United States. After long days filled with dust and attacks from animals they had only seen on screens the group finally makes it to the town of New Hope, where Thalli learns the truth of what happened to the world. With so many questions Thalli is not sure what to believe. With violence from the nearby town of Athens threatening New Hope, Thalli volunteers to go on a peace seeking mission to find a way for the towns to work together. From everything she has heard of about Athens she expects to find a town of ruthless people but instead finds Prince Alex who is kind and a city in need of help. With the stories of the Designer that John has told her Thalli finds herself searching for answers and the truth but her time is running short because the State is closing in on the group.

Krista McGee never fails to impress and continues the Anomaly Trilogy  with a captivating story of hope! This story will surprise you from beginning to end, with twists and turns around every corner and new characters you will love. McGee keeps you guessing all the way through. This trilogy will be the next big dystopian book! The only negative is having to wait until July for the conclusion! I absolutely loved this book!

I received this book complimentary from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Anomaly By: Krista McGee

Anomaly By: Krista McGee

The world has been destroyed by nuclear war, with the planet  left uninhabitable a group of ten scientists have created a new world underground, a society of engineered humans. They have each been created with a specific purpose and task to perform within the underground world. However, there are no emotions, no relationships, they complete their task and aim to be as efficient as possible.

Thalli is different, she asks questions, has a curiosity about the world that is looked down by others. For seventeen years she has managed to hide the fact that she is an anomaly, and now her life is in danger. Her days are numbered until the scientists are done using her as a test subject and decide that she will be annihilated. As she waits Thalli begins to hear stories about the Designer, someone who has a bigger plan for her life much bigger than she could have ever dreamed of.

If you are a fan of The Hunger Games, Divergent, Farenheit 451, and other dystopian books you must read Anomaly! McGee approaches the dystopian books from a Christian perspective.

Anamoly will glue you to each page until the very end, with strong characters you want to learn more about, you will identify with Thalli as she searches to learn more about the Designer and what the means for her life.  The only negative about this book is you will have to wait until next summer to read the second one.

This book is a must read for everyone’s reading list.

Right Where I Belong By Krista McGee

Right where I belong By Krista McGee

As 17-year-old Natalia watches her fathers third marriage come to and end she isn’t sure where to go. With her new-found faith, Natalia is worried that once her soon to be ex-step-mother leaves she won’t have someone to discuss her faith with.

Instead of watching her father go through another divorce, and most likely another marriage, Natalia decides to swear off love and follow her ex-step-mother from Spain where she has lived all her life to Florida, where she will finish high school, what she doesn’t expect to find there is the chance to go to a christian high school, learn that the path her father has in mind for her is not the one that God has in store, and although she has sworn off love, she does not expect to meet Brian, the local pastor’s son.

Krista McGee is an amazing young adult/teen-lit author, her stories are clean and wholesome and in the end you may just learn something about yourself. Right Where I Belong is a reminder of God’s plans for each of us, and although others may have certain expectations for our lives that we may not want to follow but are unsure which path to take God will not fail us. When the time is right He will show us the way, and we will end up right where we belong.

First Date By: Krista McGee

First Date

By: Krista McGee

Addy Davidson did not want to be in the spotlight. She had no desire to be on reality television even if it was with the very attractive son of the President of the United States. All Addy wanted was to finish school with top grades to earn a scholarship to an Ivy League college. However, after being nominated for a reality show she finds herself with 30 girls from across the country vying for the attention of one boy.

Addy thinks of every excuse to get out of the situation, but comes to realize that God wants her to go on this journey, and although not happy about it she heads onto the reality show where she is met with opposition and struggles to make friends. Unsure of why she is there and afraid to share about her faith she isn’t sure what to do. Will Addy be able to speak up about her faith? Will she find away out of the show? Will she figure out how to handle the feelings she may have for the presidents son?

First Date is a great teen lit book, thinking along the lines of Meg Cabot for the Christian girl. This book is great for all girls, where they not only get a great story but will learn about that even if you prefer to be quiet in the background God is going to push you out of your comfort zone and someday you will need to take a stand for your faith.
