    I was lucky enough to get my hands on an Advance Review Copy of this book. Normally it would have taken me a while to get through it -- I don't have that much time to read -- but this one I finished in less than a week. It was a compelling and taughtly told adventure story which kept me reading long past when I should've gone to bed.

    The basic premise of The Rule of One is that in a near-future United States, overpopulation and climate change have led to the rise of a fascistic state which contro

    Can’t wait for book two.

    While I am fully an adult, finding a good YA novel that sweeps you into another world, but tells you more about yourself, is my favorite kind of not-so-guilty pleasure! This is a hold-your-breath, while you turn-the-pages kind of series. You want to hear every word more clearly. Ava and Mira are exactly the kind of main characters you want to keep hanging out with. You want them to be your best friends, Your sisters, and mainly to march alongside them on every page bc th

    Twin sisters illegally born in a not too distance future where, due to overpopulation, the United States has adopted a strict one child policy... what a premise! I was lucky enough to grab an advanced reader's edition of The Rule of One. It's so refreshing to find a novel in the YA genre that doesn't rely on a romantic relationship (or two!) to carry the narrative. The true fabric of The Rule of One relies on the bond between twin sisters Ava and Mira. Part coming of age, part dystopia, what imp ...more

    I had to pause Natasha's (the wonderful "tashapolis" on youtube) video to add this to my TBR pile!



    I felt the authors' passion and enthusiasm about their debut novel. Also, the amount of research they did to build up The Rule of One's world is really commendable. Wow.

    This is one of my most anticipated reads of the year. I am so exciteeed!

    PS
