What I know: a boy in my class will one day wipe out two-thirds of the population with a virus.
What I don’t know: who he is.
In a race against the clock, I not only have to figure out his identity, but I’ll have to outwit a voice from the future telling me to kill him. Because I’m starting to realize no one is telling the truth. But how can I play chess with someone who already knows the outcome of my every move? Someone so filled with malice they’ve lost all hope in humanity? Well, I’ll just have to find a way—because now they’ve drawn a target on the only boy I’ve ever loved….
Rating: 4 stars!
This book surprised me! As in I did not expect to enjoy this book as much as I did.
Between reading the summary of the book and actually reading the book, I kinda forgot what it was about. And I think this is a good book to go in blind!
There are a lot of twists and turns in this book, of which most of them surprised me! Especially at the end, there were some things happening I did not expect to actually happen!
The time travel was done in a pretty interesting way, even though the actual explanation of it was a bit hard to follow haha.
I really liked our main character Alice. At some point she starts hearing this voice from the future, I understand why in the beginning she just follows this voice, based on things being said (but spoilers). But I really like that at some point she starts to doubt this voice, and stars making decisions for herself. And goes around figuring out things for herself, which makes the story very interesting!
Another character is Bandit, I liked him as a person, and the decisions he has to make are hard but I understand them. So I liked that. I wasn’t too impressed by the relations development between Bandit and Alice, it felt a bit forced.
I’m definitely interested in more work of Pintip Dunn, and I will for sure read the sequel when that comes!
