I loved this book. It is not my usual genre but I enjoyed this one. My favorite was Adam and Carly's relationship. The worse thing was Carly's mom dying. In my opinion this was a 4 star book!

I really liked this book overall, especially Adam's character development. His relationship with Carly (at least looking at it from Carly's perspective) wasn't my favorite, but it still made sense for the story. I rated it a 3 star book, but I would definitely recommend it to teenagers and young adults.

I am still in the process of reading this book, but so far, I like it! Not usually my genre of choice, but with the added piece of romance, I can get past the sci-fi aspect. My favorite aspect is the relationship between Adam and Carly. My least favorite aspect are the genetic mutations. So far, I give it a 3 star rating.

I would definitely rate it 4 out 4. I tend to avoid science fiction but this was a remarkably well-written book. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

I haven't read the book yet, but I'm a fan of sci-fi and not so much the YA genre. Still, I'd love to see how the author merges these two together. From the official review of the book though, Adam sounds like a relatable character with enough elements to his predicament to keep things interesting.

I gave this book a full four stars. What I liked most about the book was the character of Carly. She comes out as a strong female protagonist, somebody who matches Adam without losing her own individuality. What I disliked was the beginning character of Adam. I couldn't understand why he was so angry. Definitely a fun read with lots of action.

I still haven't started reading the book but from the above comments as well as the reviews I get that this book is fabulous. And I think the story has great character development and can keep the readers engaged to the storyline.
