Goodreads Summary: Gemma has been in and out of hospitals since she was born. 'A sickly child', her lonely life to date has revolved around her home, school and one best friend, Alice. But when she discovers her father's connection to the top secret Haven research facility, currently hitting the headlines and under siege by religious fanatics, Gemma decides to leave the sanctuary she's always known to find the institute and determine what is going on there and why her father's name seems inextricably linked to it.

Amidst the frenzy outside the institute's walls, Lyra - or number 24 as she is known as at Haven - and a fellow experimental subject known only as 72, manage to escape. Encountering a world they never knew existed outside the walls of their secluded upbringing , they meet Gemma and, as they try to understand Haven's purpose together, they uncover some earth-shattering secrets that will change the lives of both girls forever...

Why it's Wanted:

I loved the other Lauren Oliver books that I read, and this sounds unlike other stories that I've read before. I'm really curious to see what she does with this premise!

  2. I haven't had the best luck with Oliver's books, sadly! I've been passing all of her latest books straight because I know I'll be disappointed. But the concept of this book is SO cool. She is very creative! I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it, Christin!

    Have a fabulous week. :)
