The summary really got me, and what interested me the most to read The White Lilac is how Caryn and Kai would find each other. I mean, they both have 2 different worlds and practically the opposite. Caryn is one of the chosen ones to save the world – Beta Earth – by gathering the eggs in an aquarium. She has a special ability, which is she can breathe longer than the others while in the water. What confused me though is how does the aquarium look like? I know it’s not a small tank, obviously, because a person’s swimming in it, but is the aquarium located in a closed place or open place? I couldn’t really picture it. It basically says in the summary what Kai’s character is like. He was abandoned, and lived in the streets. Eventually T-Man’s gang found him, and the T-Man is his only lead to why his mother left him. I think Kai is the type of quiet guy, but if you mess with him, he won’t think twice messing with you back. I like both Kai & Caryn’s personality, but sometimes I couldn’t relate to them because it wasn’t in their perspective. The author was mostly telling the story, providing us the details and such. It switches from 1st person (Caryn) to 3rd person (Kai) per chapter and there wasn’t a whole lot of dialogues. The book started out with a bam, and the ending had a lot of revelations which made me gasp. The middle part of the book was slow though, and sometimes I would forget what was going on because of how slow the pacing was. There were also some typos. Overall, the concept of the book, for me, was originally thought of. There wasn’t any love story in the book, it was more like a “crush”thing. Though the characters doesn’t admit it, you can sort of see it in their actions. With that, I can see this book as a middle grade book besides young adult. It was a new read for me, and if you are a dystopian fan or sci fi (because this book also fits the sci fi genre) then I would recommend it.
This was a book given to me for a review. I was excited to really say that I enjoyed book! This book seemed to start a little allow for me. I really liked that the book was a single read. I really liked how the main characters had there own chapters. So you got to know them individually before they get together. This change of POV was a interesting change for me. This book would be a good read for a young adult.
