I was pleasantly surprised by this book! I thought this was going to be more of a "guilty pleasure" type read, but it turned out to be so much more than that. The timeline jumps between our (more or less) present day and 40 years into the future, as we follow the stories of Orla, Floss, and Marlow and discover how they interconnect. I loved how Angelo snuck in some sly political commentary and gently poked fun at our American ways in the days of the smartphone. I enjoyed her creation of the world after smartphones, and the way she addresses questions I ponder about the effects of our current lifestyles on our future selves. The book was well written, engaging, and very entertaining and not at all in a Kardashian type manner (despite the Kendall quote in the front pages!) While I didn't find the plot to be totally unexpected, it was well done. I did end up with some questions at the end though. All in all, this was a great, fun read and I really appreciate the win from Bookish First! Thanks!
