3/5    - worth reading

In 2036 New Jersey, when teens are expected to become fanatically religious wives and mothers or high-priced Surrogettes for couples made infertile by a widespread virus, 16-year-old identical twins Melody and Harmony find in one another the courage to believe they have choices.


This book was a trip to read. Everything mentioned so casually, these characters don't know a different life. Using slang like pregg and everythingbut, being proud to prostitute themselves. Wanting to turn pro so they getting a better payout. It's disturbing really.

I think the chapters are too short. I like alternating POVs, but I think this one just jumped around way too much.

I liked the twist that Gabriel had God, then I was hurt that he claimed to be lying about that. When he came to look for Harmony and asked for Melody's help, I really wanted to believe that he wanted to find her because he loved her, but I just don't trust his.

I didn't feel a big connection to this book and didn't think I'd continue with the series, but with the cliffhanger ending I have no choice.
