Please don’t assume the 5 stars mean this is a deep or world-changing book. It’s totally not. It’s basically an enemies-to-lovers story between two teenagers who end up on the run from the authorities, joining up with a ragtag band of outlaws that felt very much like the crew of Serenity, and then going on an adventure that was constantly keeping me on the edge of my seat. I was shocked at how well the romance worked because I started off the book absolutely HATING the male protagonist. I actually had the thought, “She’d better not be turning this into a romance because I would never buy that [female protagonist] would get over how awful he is.” And then . . . it was done so deftly that I was totally rooting for the two of them by the end.
