ACID - Book Review

by Emma Pass

What is it about:
The year is 2113. In Jenna Strong's world, ACID—the most brutal controlling police force in history—rule supreme. No throwaway comment or whispered dissent goes unnoticed—or unpunished. And it was ACID agents who locked Jenna away for life, for a horrendous crime she struggles to remember. But Jenna's violent prison time has taught her how to survive by any means necessary.

When a mysterious rebel group breaks her out, she must use her strength, speed, and skill to stay one step ahead of ACID, and try to uncover the truth about what really happened on that terrible night two years ago. They have taken her life, her freedom, and her true memories away from her. How can she reclaim anything when she doesn't know who to trust?

What did I think of it:
After reading and loving The Fearless I had to read ACID as well.

And this book doesn't disappoint.

There's lots of action, intrigue, and suspense. Jenna is thrown from one difficult and dangerous situation in the next, with almost no time to take a breath. I very much enjoyed how the story progressed, and how things fitted together.

There are some things that didn't really make sense, or were a bit too obvious, but the story was too cool to really feel annoyed by them. It was easy to suspend disbelief and enjoy the ride.

Overall this book didn't grab me as much as The Fearless did, but it was most certainly a very enjoyable read. I will keep an eye out for Pass' next book.

Why should you read it:
It's a cool, action-packed Dystopian YA read.
