Alright, so imagine that all of you boys are only going to live til you're 25. Oh. You're a girl? That's okay, you've got even less time: 20 years. This is the mindset I had to get in, to read Wither by Lauren DeStefano.
Let's give a second to the styling of the book. I will not lie to you, I thought the first ten pages were really hard because they were slow to me. The writing was fast, but the reading part of it was slow. Let me explain what I mean to you guys, the writing seems to go without transitions, it's more of a boom-boom-boom, let's get this done, attitude, but after that it reads very fast and it's very engaging.
I particularly loved the love pentagon within the story. Even though you could say that it's a love triangle, I disagree. I think saying that completely writes off Jenna and Cecily's love for Linden, and the reluctant jealousy that comes along with that from Rhine.
You loved this book? Don't worry, the life of Rhine doesn't end here. The book is part of a series, a trilogy more specifically. Have I convinced you to read it yet?

Good readings! :)
