Review: Divided


Divided
Divided by Elsie Chapman

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



REVIEW:

I read and loved the first book, but found myself feeling like . . . Is it over yet towards the end of this 2nd book Divided. I liked that the book gave a little more information about the society they are trying to survive in and had hopes that now West could find a way to make life better for those who have not had to fight their alt yet. Of course, her helping train less wealthy youths helps.

There were some good fight scenes, action and suspense, but I guess after a while I just got tired with the feeling she was trapped and helpless to do anything about it because of a corrupt government. I appreciate West's attempts and successes at doing the right thing.

I was given this book to provide an honest opinion of. I can see that many young adults would enjoy the culture and need to use their own creativity as to how to get around a corrupt setting such as in this story. Very relatable and gives young readers much to think about and be thankful for.




BOOK DESCRIPTION:

The hunter becomes the hunted. . . .

West Grayer is done killing. She defeated her Alternate, a twin raised by another family, and proved she’s worthy of a future. She’s ready to move on with her life.

The Board has other plans. They want her to kill one last time, and offer her a deal worth killing for. But when West recognizes her target as a ghost from her past, she realizes she’s in over her head. The Board is lying, and West will have to uncover the truth of the past to secure her future.

How far will the Board go to keep their secrets safe? And how far will West go to save those she loves? With nonstop action and surprising twists, Elsie Chapman’s intoxicating sequel to Dualed reveals everything.
