Sasha, an autistic teen who prefers the pronoun "they", is severely burned and has to undergo multiple surgeries after an encounter with Richard, an African American boy, who sets fire to their skirt. Richard is then arrested and accused of a hate crime to the dismay of his family. This book intricately weaves together both Sasha's and Richard's sides to effectively give the reader a clear understanding of the motives and aftermath of the incident. I loved how the author clearly explains everything that is happening in the story, such as all the laws and actions that are involved in the conviction of a minor as well as additional information on the rates of conviction for young African Americans. In addition, I loved how she also provides information on the LGBTQ society specifically focusing on the transgender and gender neutral community. The book definitely grips the reader from the start and keeps them from putting it down. Overall, this is an amazing book that I really enjoyed reading. I would recommend this to everyone as it provides a lot of insight on the sensitive aspects of our society. Show less

It’s a type of dystopian novel that manages to be similar to others in its genre but also distinguished due to its originality. Pacifica is set in the far off future after the north and south poles had melted, leaving the world flooded, ravaged by natural disasters, depleted of resources and divided between rich and poor. The government of North America had recently unveiled a “paradise” island to provide an opportunity for the poor and to revitalize the country. Predictably it was met with much criticism, distrust, and rioting. An ex-pirate, Marin, stumbles upon the president’s son and his best friend during the riots. After the wrongful imprisonment of the best friend, Marin happens to help the president save his friend after encountering challenges from the environment, pirates, and government. I enjoyed how the author had such a detailed and well-researched explanation of the dystopian universe and how it came to be. The characters are well thought out and dynamic, and they make the story even more enjoyable. I didn’t love how dragged out the rising action leading to the climax was. I felt like the plot went back and forth a lot, as they were free, captured, then freed again. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed the overall story and would gladly recommend this book to teens who enjoy dystopian and adventure novels with a tiny bit of romance. -Christina Show less
