REVIEW: Untreatable by J. Laslie
By- J. Laslie
Genre- YA Dystopian
People are dying...
Tahlia and Quentin live in a world where the US population is starving to death one hundred years after a government-mandated "cure" for obesity. Tahlia's ancestors escaped genetic mutation. Now she and her tribe must hide in the wilds of South Dakota to avoid being harvested for their untainted DNA. When Tahlia is captured on a supply run, she becomes a lab rat for the scientists searching for an antidote. The fate of humanity lies buried in Tahlia's genetic code, and her own survival lies in the hands of Quentin–the only son of the very doctors who want to cut her open.
Harrowing and suspenseful, Untreatable transports readers to a dystopian future where everything is not as it seems and resilience of body–and spirit–is required to survive.
I really enjoyed this book! I have not read a Dystopian book in a long while. I missed reading this genre and this book brought back my love for it!
Author J. Laslie had me hooked from the 1st page. I immediately got into the story and characters she created.
This story line was not what I expected from a YA book and that is what made me like this book a lot!
Obesity.... yes the government has found a cure to end it. Well that is what they say but did they really find a cure? Everyone has to make a decision on whether they want to be cured or not who are obese. And so it begins with you falling into the minds of Tahlia and Quentin and their journey of saving each other and the ones they love.
Action, love, suspense, and some twists that had me second guessing the outcome at the end.
While reading this story, Author J. Lasile was able to bring me into her realistic world she created which I loved. I felt as though I was there.
Go get this book! Great read!
