We start with a dark stint in the hospital for trying to commit suicide. Her father works for a company that cured autism, and are on the brink of other huge discovery’s. However, she is unique since the ‘happy juice’ doesn’t work on her. She’s also different because if she touches someone she gets a big glimpse of their mind. Thoughts, memories, fears, joys, it’s all uploaded into her brain with a single touch except for one person her father. Now, her mother is in a coma that she doesn’t believe is an accident. She literally trips over a boy named David who’s helping her investigate her father. And it all revolves around the drugs that may soon become mandatory for each person to take.
What a rush! What a ride! This book is freaking epic! And sad, hopeful, shocking, I’m trying to gather all my thoughts for the review. Mira, is in such torment, mentally, about what she can do it’s heartbreaking. When her mother is in the coma and David helps her it’s really rather amazing. The book comes together so flawlessly. The mystery aspect is perfect and spot on. I have my suspicions throughout the books and I was right but it is a wild ride getting there. So many twists and horrible but well written turns. I cannot stop reading! I want more books in this world.
Contact is an epic read that shouldn’t be missed! (Even if you don’t usually read young adult, give this book a try!)
