This book was even better than I expected!!!
When I saw the cover for THE ONES WE’RE MEANT TO FIND I immediately knew I wanted it, but I sort of thought, from the cover, that I was a beautiful fantasy book. It turned out to be a gripping dystopian that I couldn’t put down and I’m so here for it.
I loved all of the elements of the story. A girl who struggled with social interactions. Sisters who were completely different from one another, but who would do anything for each other. A friendly robot. The dangers of climate-change. And a unique futuristic world juxtaposed against a deserted island survival situation.
Here’s a quick blurb and synopsis:
One of the most twisty, surprising, engaging page-turner YAs you’ll read this year—We Were Liars meets Black Mirror, with a dash of Studio Ghibli.
Cee awoke on an abandoned island three years ago. With no idea of how she was marooned, she only has a rickety house, an old android, and a single memory: she has a sister, and Cee needs to find her.
STEM prodigy Kasey wants escape from the science and home she once trusted. The eco-city—Earth’s last unpolluted place—is meant to be sanctuary for those commited to planetary protection, but it’s populated by people willing to do anything for refuge, even lie. Now, she’ll have to decide if she’s ready to use science to help humanity, even though it failed the people who mattered most.
The Ones We’re Meant to Find will be releasing on May 4th and Joan He has a lovely pre-order incentive that includes art cards and a donation on your behalf to OceanConservancy — you should be sure to check it out!
