Free to Fall
   by: Lauren Miller

YA Science Fiction

Expected Release: May 13, 2014
Harper Teen


What if there was an app that told you what song to listen to, what coffee to order, who to date, even what to do with your life—an app that could ensure your complete and utter happiness? What if you never had to fail or make a wrong choice?

What if you never had to fall?


Fast-forward to a time when Apple and Google have been replaced by Gnosis, a monolith corporation that has developed the most life-changing technology to ever hit the market: Lux, an app that flawlessly optimizes decision making for the best personal results. Just like everyone else, sixteen-year-old Rory Vaughn knows the key to a happy, healthy life is following what Lux recommends. When she’s accepted to the elite boarding school Theden Academy, her future happiness seems all the more assured. But once on campus, something feels wrong beneath the polished surface of her prestigious dream school. Then she meets North, a handsome townie who doesn’t use Lux, and begins to fall for him and his outsider way of life. Soon, Rory is going against Lux’s recommendations, listening instead to the inner voice that everyone has been taught to ignore — a choice that leads her to uncover a truth neither she nor the world ever saw coming.

 
I loved Lauren Miller's Parallel and her plot twists will leave you gasping for breath and shaking your head in disbelief. I am super excited for this one!

  1. I want this one, too, Jess! I read Parallel and Pivot Point very close together, and while Parallel wasn't QUITE as good, I still can't wait to read more from Lauren Miller.

    1. Sadly it's not! Lauren said she wasn't writing anything else with Parallel, which made me really sad because I hate open endings. LOL.

  15. I really liked Parallel and when Lauren described Free To Fall, I knew I had to read it. It just sounds like it has the potential for awesome. Parallel slightly went over my head but I love how Lauren aims so high.

Leave me some comment love! And I will get around to commenting back!

My blog is an award-free blog, however, as I just do not have the time to follow-up.
