Seventeen year old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP—a genetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on prime water-front property along-side other equally beautiful people with extended life spans. Her brother Liam is missing. Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they’ve created between those who have and those who don’t. He doesn’t like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically. Zoe’s carefree life takes a traumatic turn. She’s in trouble and it turns out that Noah, the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her.
OMG! This book was just what I needed to read. It was an indie, it had a sci-fi, dystopian world & a BEAUTIFUL romance! It was not what i expected & it truly captured me! =D The world is SO interesting & unique. There is a division between the Naturals & the GAP's. Almost like the rich & poor. I liked that the GAP's had extended life's of about 200+ years & were normally blond haired, blue eyed, & flawless...basically perfection. While the Naturals were outside of the GAP cities & lived in horrible conditions & still as imperfect as us now. That difference would ultimately create the tension between Zoe's family & life. I LOVED that she was curious, hard headed, and didn't let anything stand between her & the truth. I liked her relationship with Noah. It was sweet. They didn't like each other at all but slowly they learned to love each other for who they were not WHAT they were. Along the way they learn many shocking things, like what really happened to her brother Liam & her as a child. I LOVED that i had NO CLUE what was going to happen next. It really keeps you on your toes. Noah & Zoe go on crazy & dangerous missions. There was a part in the story that broke my heart. It really hit me as if I were Noah (i really got into the book) & it was hard. I liked that the author included BOTH Noah & Zoey's POV! The ending. It was SO action packed & yet calm. It felt like they finally get some peace & after all that happened a little escape is exactly what they needed. It also left me wanting MORE!!! XD Overall, I LOVE,LOVE,LOVED this book!!! It is a MUST READ for the fall & pretty fast. I highly recommend you give it a go, it will surprise you! SO, 5/5 GOLDEN FEATHERS!!
