Fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent will love Evalene's Number and its incredible dystopian tale by Amazon bestselling author Bethany Atazadeh.
Everyone in Eden is assigned a Number, tattooed on their neck, which determines their value and place in the world.
On her Numbering Day, Evalene Vandereth anticipates joining the élite. Born in an upper-class family, she knows exactly who she is and what she is worth. Even as the needle breaks her skin, she is blissfully happy. She never considers another outcome, until it’s too late.
Now 18-year-old Evalene lives in fear, struggling with her new identity, stripped of her freedom and basic human rights. Can she escape her Number? Is anyone else asking the same question?
"A rigorous apocalyptic backdrop and versatile characters supply seemingly endless avenues for further volumes to explore."

I was nervous going into this book because in the beginning it stated the main character Evalene was only thirteen. I don't relate to younger characters that well in a lot of YA books anymore, but as the story progressed and I got to see the character grow, I was completely hooked. Bethany's writing style is very smooth and at times had me on the edge of seat. This first installment of the Number series was entertaining and enlightening. It's very different from what I expected just reading the blurb, but I think that makes this book all the more worth reading.
The first dystopian I really enjoyed, which is saying a lot. Great debut, couldn't put it down!! I loved pretty much everything about it, and my only complaint is that I wish there was more romance hahaha Thank you to Bethany for sending me a copy of her book and for answering my questions in a Q&A! ♡
