People would kill for her body.
Raised in an elite foster center off the California coast, sixteen-year-old Tabitha’s been sculpted into a world-class athlete. Her trainers have told her she’ll need to be in top physical condition to be matched with a loving family, even though personal health has taken a backseat outside the training facility. While Tabitha swims laps and shaves seconds off her mile time, hoping to find a permanent home, the rest of the community takes pills produced by pharmaceutical giant PharmPerfect to erase their wrinkles, grow hair, and develop superhuman strength.
When Tabitha’s finally paired, instead of being taken to meet her new parents, she wakes up immobile on a hospital bed. Moments before she’s sliced open, a group of renegade teenagers rescues her, and she learns the real reason for her perfect health: PharmPerfect is using her foster program as a replacement factory for their pill-addicted clients’ failing organs. And her friends from the center, the only family she’s ever known, are next in line to be harvested.
Determined to save them, Tabitha joins forces with her rescuers, led by moody and mysterious Gavin Stiles. As they race to infiltrate the hospital and uncover the rest of PharmPerfect’s secrets, though, Tabitha finds herself with more questions than answers. Will trusting the enigmatic group of rebels lead her back to the slaughterhouse?

If you are a follower of my blog you will know that this is usually my type of book but after reading the synopsis of it I knew that I really wanted to read this debut book.

Thanks to Chapter By Chapter blog tour for allowing me to be a part of the book tour and sending an eArc of the book so that I could read it for my review. Yes I did receive a copy of the book for my honest and sincere review.

Jessica Kapp did a fantastic job and I would never have thought that this was a debut novel because it was beautiful written and not once did I think that this was a sci-fi/dystopian read. The characters were fantastic and I loved Tabitha the main character.

From the start of the book I was hooked and intrigued and quite honestly I read it in one sitting. It was a roller coaster of emotions and I even cried at the end of the book and its been awhile since a book has done that to me. So if you plan on reading this just make sure to have some tissue on hand.

One of the things I really enjoyed about the book was how the pacing went and I have to say it flowed just perfectly. It was literally like riding a roller coaster building up and the crashing and over and over again. It was enough to hook you in and keep reading.

Tabitha, the main character has always thought that her parents died in an accident and she was sent to an elite kind of  orphanage just waiting to be adopted. She has no memory of that day  so she never had anything to question until the day she is told she is going to be adopted. She has never questioned as to why they are to be kept healthy and active. To her it’s just the normal.

Until one day that changes it all and what Tabitha thought she knew really wasn’t the truth. On the way to meet her “adoptive family” she is actually drugged and brought to the hospital and thankfully with some help she is kidnapped by Gavin and his friends who tell Tabitha what is really going on and they are determined to stop this from happening to another person especially to her friends.

I really enjoyed this book and to this day I am still thinking about it and I still gush over it to anyone who will listen without giving up to much information.

I look forward to reading more of Jessica’s books in the future.
