Review: Dead Girl Running

Dead Girl Running Dead Girl Running by Ann M. Noser
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I love young adult books, and if the genre is dystopian, so much the better...

This book started very well, even if doesn't give you much info on what happened before the New Order was in charge.
But then it grew more and more confusing. There seems to be a rebellion, but there's not much background, and there's a race from where the winners are selected to become great citizens (and then disappear), and some event that happened 8 years before and changed the life of Silvia, the main character.

Instead of focusing on these subjects, we get lots of information about yoga and how to train for a race, and some teen romance.

The characters are a mixed lot: Silvia, strong, but not nice and traumatized by her father's death. Yoshe, her mother, who is really unlikable; Gus (Silvia's boss and mentor) adorable. And lastly, the two guys: Franco, who starts out great and ends up being a completely different person, and Liam, who is irrelevant.

But I have to say that I enjoyed the book, even if I'm criticizing it. It's a fast, light read and the events are well written and described (even if more background is needed).

I will surely read Book 2 when it's published.

2.5 stars rounded up to 3

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
