Book Description:

There will come a day... when love will mark you as a traitor.

In a society where emotions are nothing and function is everything, Avlyn Lark is just trying to blend in.

She's lucky to be alive, unlike her twin brother Ben who died when they were four. And she's lucky to have been taken from her biological parents and assigned to a Level Two family. But mastering her emotions? That's a problem, especially when a rebel bomb blows up a building right in front of her.

Then on Configuration Day, Avlyn's official transition to adulthood, she starts seeing strange visions. And instead of being placed with a low-level tech company where she could hide away, she's hired by Genesis Technologies, the government firm that monitors every citizen.

Now, instead of blending in, Avlyn fears she'll be exposed for what she really is. If Gen Tech finds out how deeply she feels, it will ruin her life. And if they find out about her secret meetings with a mysterious but handsome member of the rebel forces, her life will be more than ruined.

It will be over.

Fans of dystopian novels like Divergent, Matched, and the Maze Runner will love this world of dark secrets, intrigue and thirst for a better tomorrow.

My Review

Configured is an exciting new science-fiction dystopian trilogy for young adults. Avlyn, the heroine, lives in Elore where a person's ability means everything. Emotions are considered unacceptable behavior and relationships are discouraged. Since her childhood, she has been trying to blend in by hiding her abilities from others. She tries to do what is expected of her, but nothing more. However, her abilities unexpectedly get a boost and she finds it harder to hide what she can do. Avlyn also finds it difficult to hide her emotions and now she's even been making some dangerous friends, the rebel kind. Pretty soon she's going to get noticed and then she'll have to run for her life! 

I don't normally read dystopian novels, but I was hooked from the beginning and read it within two days. There's plenty of suspense and the story is interesting. There's also a bit of romance, which makes it even better. I can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy!

Jenetta Penner

Jenetta Penner

Jenetta Penner developed a love of sci-fi at an early age and decided on a whim to read 40 young adult books in the same genre. From that experience, an author was born. Configured is her debut novel. She lives in sunny Southern California with her husband, two daughters and two furbabies. And she may or may not have a slight addiction to cat gifs.
