BOOK REVIEW: Ascendancy (The Van Winkle Project, #2) by Karri Thompson


BLURB:

I’ve been lied to, deceived, and manipulated—again. You’d think I’d be treated with dignity and respect. I’m the one who’s supposed to save humanity, right? I’m the one with the power to re-populate this dying world. But the clones want to control me, force me to give birth over and over again. And my daughters will face the same fate—unless I change it.

My awakening into this future should have been a chance for a new life, but it just promises a living death. With Michael on my side, though, maybe I can save us. He’s the only person I can trust.

I hear rumors of others… A secret society is growing. Tension is building.

A rebellion is imminent.

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 12 years, 15 days until 13!

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book was very interesting! 

My favorite character is Cassie because she is resilient and strong, even when her family is taken away she keeps her wits and moves forward. 

My favorite part is when Shen-Lung speaks to Cassie at the gifting ceremony. He is kind and respects everyone. He doesn't have an ulterior motive, but is simply being a nice human being. 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes books with schemes, controlled societies and daring adventures to reclaim what was once taken. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 14 and up.
