I’m Jenetta and a lifetime lover of Sci-Fi (thx Dad). I had a weird LONG stint (declaring HOW long would give away too many age secrets… and eh hem… a girl never tells) where I read almost no books for pleasure (the horror!). Near the end of 2014 I picked up Hunger Games, and I was off like a rocket.
That next year I read about 40 YA books (mostly Sci-Fi/dystopian) and a couple months into it got the idea to write a book (with no prior experience or even desire) about children who were not allowed to be raised by their biological parents. You see, I am an adoptive mama of two lovely daughters from foster care. That story grew into what Configured is today.
It has been a HUGE journey with a lot of ups and downs and it took WAY longer than I anticipated. But it is finally here.
I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars! I sincerely enjoyed reading this book! …….. I tend to go into a new dystopian novel hoping for the best, but equally prepared for the worst. Such was the case when I started Configured. However, it did not take long to determine that this was going to be one of the good ones! I found many relatable aspects in this book including, but certainly not limited to, Avlyn’s struggle to blend in, even though she is (at least to us readers) obviously meant to stand out………
