I really enjoyed this book—it was fast-paced, interesting and (surprisingly) not too hard to follow along with. I like how each chapter was laid out, some taking place in the present and some from the past, but I can understand how it can be confusing. Luckily, it made sense with this story and going back into the past helped contribute details to what was going on in the present.

One of my favorite things about this book was the characters. I really liked Fia, the sister who was born with perfect instincts. Even though she was easily affected by the people around her, she was still brave and FUNNY. Even though she could be a bit whiny at times, all her witty remarks and taunts made me wish I could be that easily unfazed.

Having read Shatter Me (by Tahereh Mafi) right before picking this book up, I saw a lot of similarities but wasn't bothered by it. I thought the storyline was well-written and captivating, especially being less than 240 pages, and I will definitely be picking up Perfect Lies (the sequel) to find out what happens!
