Synopsis:Serve the community. Obey the laws. Exist on anxiety pills. This is all Monet, a ward of her city, can hope for until she and her friend, Luke, find an old book that shows the history of mankind—a past that’s been hidden from them and all the citizens of Titus. As their curiosity takes them down a dangerous path, extraordinary events begin to occur, showing them God may exist and is reaching out to them through illegal art and a realm of paranormal activity. Monet and Luke find themselves at a crossroads: live within the safe, logical confines of Titus, or embrace the wild truth and risk death.
I was given a book in exchange for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.
Monet Tinman's mom left when she was seven. "They" said her mind was crazy. They aren't telling the whole story. Monet lives in a world in which people must abide by the rules and take their pills. This world explodes for Monet when she and her friend Luke discover an old book. They discover history that was suppressed. History that "they" don't want anyone to know.
This is a great dystopian novel. I love the way art is used in the book to express things that the community does not want expressed. I love Luke. He is a great character. The plot was paced well. Some of the themes are reflected a little too well in the world we live in today. This is a very entertaining book.
