Two years after the massacre, the State enforces stricter rules and harsher punishments on anyone rumored to support tomo – the clairvoyant drug that caused a regional uprising.
But sixteen-year-old Sophia Gray has other problems.
Between her father’s illegal forgery and her friend’s troubling history, the last thing Sophia needs is an unexpected encounter with a boy.
He’s wild, determined, and one step ahead of her. But when his involvement with tomo threatens her friends and family, Sophia has to make a decision: fight for a future she cannot see or sacrifice her loved ones to the world of tomorrow.
Take Me Tomorrow is the kind of tale you want to finish in one sitting. It is so easy to get lost in the excitement of Sophia’s journey. Told in first person, Sophia’s voice is so engaging she gets in your head. She faces danger and uncertainty at every turn, and you’re right there with her until the end.
The setting is an intriguing one, throwing the reader into unfamiliar territory and because you’re already invested, this adds to the feeling of uncertainty when Sophia’s world is turned upside down. It is a marvellous mystery, a real page turner. Even the chapter headings are a hook, teasing the reader into one more taste!
Take Me Tomorrow deals with difficult issues in a rather unique way. The author flips these topics on their head, forcing her readers to think about immigration and drug addiction from an entirely different perspective.
At its heart, it is a story of friendship and survival. Those friendships are expertly told, so that each character stands out in their own right. It is a highly enjoyable read.
