Anomaly by Krista McGee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
"In a post-nuclear war world, Thalli was born with an anomaly - she has the ability to feel emotions and a sense of curiosity she can barely contain. It's this same anomaly that makes her question everything she has been taught to be true. It's this same anomaly that could also cost her her life."
Thalli was born into a world in which citizens have a singular purpose, no emotions, and have never walked the surface of the planet. Citizens are created rather than born and the only "old" people are the scientists who are in charge. Thalli was an anomaly in that she was curious, she had questions, and she felt things. She shared her secret with a boy who was destined to become a scientist himself...
The twists and turns in this book keep you guessing. You read it recognizing the possibility of such a world. A world in which God has been removed. One in which pure science reigns. And yet, you can't really remove God, can you?
A great summer read! I look forward to more from this author.
