Girls aren’t allowed to get an education, they need permission to speak to boys, and all marriages are negotiated by contract. But Mina’s grandmother has secretly been teaching her to read, leading Mina down a path of rebellion, romance, and danger that not only threatens to destroy her family’s reputation, it could get Mina killed.

Wow! This was the best dystopian I’ve listened to in a while! The world is fantastic, and I was honestly so impressed with the creativity and unique outlook the author took here. You could see the amount of time and thoughtfulness put into writing this, and I definitely feel that this series is going to become big. I loved the main female lead, and her growth and maturity throughout. I also thought the pacing was excellent and the story never lulled. Looking forward to book two!
