Summary of the Book:

Seventeen-year-old Alina is the only imperfect person in a perfect world. On the surface, Pria is paradise: no hunger, no pain, not even death. Pria’s all-powerful ruler provides new thrills, constant pleasure, and eternal beauty. Every smile dazzles, every party delivers, and every young adult stops aging.

Except one.

Alina longs to fit in with her beautiful peers and dreams of connecting with the one boy who has been kind to her. But her flaws stand in the way. Fed up with her blunders and blemishes, her absence of friends, and her distant guardian, Alina seeks answers.

But behind Pria’s picture-perfect facade, unrest is growing, and the secrets Alina uncovers about her past are darker—and brighter—than she ever imagined.

A mysterious birth. A corrupt scientist who creates life merely to rule it. A parallel world where dissenters are sent to die. And an innocent Alina at the center of a deadly conspiracy. Now the only imperfect person must discover the courage to free herself and those she loves before she is silenced forever. 

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I was not sure what I would get when I decided to read this book. When I read the description I felt so sorry for Alina and the world that she lived in. I have to admit it did make me pause a moment and look at my life and my life when I was a teenager. She goes through a lot in her journey for she lives in where perfection and immortality is the norm. That is not true for her as she has imperfections that make her stand out from her peers and that puts so much pressure on her. I did not think this book would be as dark as it was, but that made me want to know more with each page. It was an intense read.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
