The surmise is basically similar to X-Men. But in this case, some sort of disease left children with extraordinary powers. The people of Adelina's country, however, see these children as cursed and have actively hunted them down.
But to be honest, it isn't the plot or the summary that attracted me to this book.
If you've read a LOT of YA novels and you find yourself unable to relate to the heroes and heroines who rise above the pain and prejudice directed at them their whole life, then I believe this book is for you.
The main draw of this book is Adelina and how her story progresses throughout the novel. She starts off the way a lot of YA characters start out. Being in a world wherein she's a hated minority, she still has people she cares about and still longs for a deep and lasting connection with people. Halfway into the book though, we find out just how unique Adelina is from other YA protagonists..
So if you want an exploration into the hows and whys someone (especially a YA heroine) could make very morally ambiguous choices, then give this YA book a try.
this was a fantastic book I can't wait for the second book really worth listening to I didn't sleep the whole night where I had to finish it five stars all the way
