Review: Away We Go

Away We Go Away We Go by Emil Ostrovski
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Book Talk:
Not only has most of the nation's teenagers been struck by a deadly, contagious disease and relegated to hospices, there is a meteor on a collision course with Earth. Noah Falls must figure out what to do with the short time left to him (whether he dies by disease or comet).

My Thoughts:
What a strange book. The premise intrigued me from the start (I am a glutton for dystopia), but it really failed to deliver. There was too much movement in perspective for me to follow along. I couldn't connect with any of the characters, as there was so little development. And the relationships (same sex or other) just seemed forced.

My Rating:
2.5 stars

Gr. 10+ for language, adult situations
