I love me a good ya sci-fi, and there is so much available right now but that doesn’t mean I am going to not read this one either, because enemies having to work together? Yes.

Joyride by Anna Banks

Date added: March 23, 2017

I have actually read part of this book, and looking back I realize it’s not exactly what I want in a YA contemporary with it’s dealings of immigration and how it affects the family. As a descendant of a family of immigrants I have an understanding of the struggle, and the direction this was going in wasn’t one I could read.

Another one of those classic Sci-Fi books that I want to have had read at least once. Also because I wonder how much of this inspired Lifelike by Jay Kristoff?
