On the beautiful island of Agalinas, Freesia’s life is perfect. She has the perfect family, perfect friends, and the perfect wardrobe. The weather is always sunny and warm, her classes always have yummy snacks, and there’s always a party to go to and a store to shop in. That is, until the blackouts start happening and she wakes up in a dark room with plastic walls. When she is safe in Agalinas, Freesia, doesn’t like to think about things too hard. So when her perfect little world turns out to be not-so-perfect, she’s got to learn quickly how to navigate the real life she has going on just outside her bubble.
This story has a pretty original plot, which makes it stand out from typical the-world-is-not-what-you-think-it-is books. The author does a great job of making Freesia a relatable character, even though her life in Agalinas has her acting pretty shallow. This book is good for fans of realistic fiction who also enjoy a little sci-fi thrown in.
