Book Review: Vivian Apple Needs a Miracle
Book 2 in the Vivian Apple books
AUTHOR: Katie Coyle
PUBLISHED: September 1rst, 2015 (in the US)
PREMISE: Vivian and her friend Harper do what they can to fight against the powerful Church of America, who has turned the two of them into public enemy no. 1.
MY REVIEW: It seems as though this is the last book in this series and I think that's a shame. This was a great dystopian set up. Considering the rhetoric going around lately, I had zero problems believing it could happen. That's rare in a YA dystopian.
On top of the fascinating set up are some great characters. The friendship between Vivian and Harper continues to be fabulous. We get some more insight to Vivian's long lost sister as well as her mother and it's just some all around good stuff. The romance with Peter is a bit whatever, but what can you do.
I'm sorry to see these books go. It was such a refreshing dystopian. I hope Coyle sticks around and gives us more interesting books.
WHO SHOULD READ: fans of the first book, dystopian fans, Glory O'Brien's History of the Future fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five believable dystopians
