I can’t believe I read this all in one day! I was sick in bed so that helped. I love dystopian and this book by Dawn Housted did not disappoint. It was fast paced and kept me interested on each page. The three main characters are Penny, James, and Lucan and I loved them all and they are all so different from each other. I truly cared for each character, even when they did something wrong.
One of my favorite things about Safe is the world that Husted crafted. It’s very different from our own and at times very scary once Penny learns the true background behind the town she grew up in. People are born with ‘vines’ where their veins are black and show up throughout their body. The more vines a person has the stronger they are. A Perimeter is set up around the island they live in so infected people without vines can’t get in. That in returns means they can’t get out. But some babies are born without them and are thought to be infected and spreading the disease, but are they? I can’t wait to read more by this author, I really love her writing style.
