I absolutely loved this book. It was recommended to me by my sister and I’m honestly a little upset that she recommended it to me so early because now I have to wait for the second book. It had an amazing plot and I think the author executed it almost flawlessly. I personally wasn’t the biggest fan about how quickly Ash and Finn got together. I feel like there should’ve been a little bit more of a growth in their relationship. I also wish we were told more about their past and why Finn had remembered her all those years. I also thought that the plot twist with Rys wasn’t as good as it could’ve been, but all together this was a great book and I can’t wait to read the sequel!! – Amazon Review
The Cure: A Young Adult Dystopian Novel
(The Cure Chronicles Book 1)
Before the Blight, becoming an adult was something teenagers looked forward to. But now, turning eighteen means certain death.
Unless you prove yourself worthy of the Cure.
On her seventeenth birthday, Ashen Spencer is blindfolded and escorted to the massive, mysterious building known as the Arc to begin her year of training and testing in hopes that she can earn the Cure—a powerful drug given only to those deemed worthy to survive beyond their eighteenth birthday.
Ashen has a chance to rise up from her former life of squalor and be granted a place in society, if the Panel—the mysterious group of powerful men and women in charge of the Arc—deems her year a success. She’s assigned to work for twelve months as a servant for a wealthy family whose son is the most alluring young man she’s ever met. At first, Ashen is grateful for the opportunity to earn her place in a society she’s always dreamed of inhabiting.
But as time passes and she begins to learn the truth about the people she admires so much and the home she left behind, she realizes she has a choice: Be part of the disease…Or be part of the Cure.
For readers of The Hunger Games, Divergent, and the Selection
