Synopsis (From Goodreads)
Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided…by your future self.
It’s Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she’s eagerly awaiting her vision―a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they’re meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.
Or in Callie’s case, a criminal.
In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo―a hellish prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes.
But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all—Callie, herself.
If you know me, you know that I love science fiction; I also love dystopian novels; I also love anything space travel. So this book is seriously right up my freaking alley! It did not disappoint.
It is such an amazing concept, to be able to, in the future, send one specific memory to your past self. A memory that will dictate how you live your life from that moment forward.
Time is an awkward thing, time travel is an ever more awkward and complicated thing. These memories that are given to everyone in Eden City are mere glimpses to what life in the future will be like, they are not always clear…or certain. As the future is not concrete, and we can change it at anytime. Knowing the future, does not destroy free will.
Such a complicated topic, Pintip Dunn wrote it out beautifully. I wasn’t overly confused, and it was fairly easy to follow along. All of the characters were likeable, or unlikeable when needed. The romance wasn’t necessarily in your face, and was very believable. I loved that most of the twists I never saw coming. Moral of the story…we are the masters of our own fate.
I really enjoyed this, and I will be looking out for the sequel.
Until next time,
