Thalli has known most of her life that she is different but she’s always had to hide those differences for survival purposes. She’s now a teenager who has accidentally been caught doing something that is forbidden, but just in time a hero swoops in to save the day and life as she knows it changes completely.
If you enjoyed Ally Condie’s Matched or Veronica Roth’s Divergent, you should definitely try Anomaly. Some of the characters have such contrasting personalities which often leave you guessing how they’ll handle or react to different situations. The one thing that this book has that most dystopian novels lack is discussions of religion. These were introduced later in the book which was interesting because the new perspective changed the direction of the book, causing a much unexpected outcome. This is a great opener for a series that has huge potential. I look forward to seeing where Krista McGee takes us.
Anomaly is also the name of the series and so far there are two additional books McGee has written in the series.
