Truth be told, I did not like this book. I had a very hard time getting into it and I struggled to find the motivation to continue reading. The way the book was set up simply made me very not interested in it. I did not like that each chapter essentially had two chapters in it, one version for each of the two storylines that was being told.
I think the premise behind the book is great, and I love the idea of there being two stories within one book. Especially with the idea of alternate realities. However, I did not like the flip-flop back and forth in this book. If you weren’t keeping careful track on which chapter was which, it was easy to forget that the storyline switched back and forth. There were a few times that I got confused as to which version of Chris that I was currently reading.
With that being said, I did very much enjoy the storyline of this book. I liked how one version had Kris in trouble for something that he did it while the other version showed what would happen if he got away with it. I did like that the two storylines merged together at points so that there were specific events that happened in both timelines.
If you like alternate realities and alternate possibilities for stories, then this book is absolutely perfect for you. The storyline and the premise and the characters were fantastic.

From the first sentence, I was drawn into this book. Right away I knew that it would be humorous and entertaining.
Edwin was a fantastic main character. I loved the way that the author showed Edwin’s progression throughout the book and it showed how Edwin grew to better understand himself and the situations that he was a part of. I loved the way that the author used Parker and Garland to teach Edwin who he truly was, without letting him know that they were doing so.
The development of Parker somewhat surprised me to be honest. While I did see the progression of her and Edwin’s friendship, I was not expecting the way it concluded. However, I did 100% predict the way that Edwin and Sadie’s relationship would end up.
I both loved and was disappointed by Garland’s story. I wish that there had been more detail into who he truly was, I also hoped for a better resolution for his story. For that reason, I read this book a 4/5 stars.
Overall, this was a very engaging and humorous read. The storyline was easy to follow, the characters were relatable, and the story finished well.

When the book started, I immediately thought…okay, another dystopian end-of-world type of book. And while, yes this is a good way to classify it, it was also different than others that I have read. I loved the way the Gifted’s Gifts worked and how their gifts could vary from person to person, even within the skill they had.
I would have loved to have more descriptions of the action scenes. There would be fantastic build up and then all of a sudden, it was over. I was very underwhelmed by the climaxes of the book, I would have loved more action and more descriptions of the action scenes rather than a couple paragraphs.
The book left me with a lot of questions on what actually happened because of this. I’m hoping the author will write more books that clarify some of these events more.
The book was an engaging and quick read and overall, I enjoyed it.
