Review
4/5
Tess is 16 and lives in Eden. After her scientist mother is killed she runs away to the bad lands. Things are not what she things they will be there and she decides to return. The thing is that she can not go back to the way things were. She decides to work with Kudzu. Things keep going differently then what she expects. She starts having feelings towards Hunter but then he turns out not to be what she thought,.
There is alot of Tess figuring things out. She is 16 but acts more like an adult. I liked that this story didn't feel like a YA but a Sci Fi book.
It reminded me of the video games my husband liked to place. Even though I am not a huge fan of robots, I felt like this was such a good story. Plus how many sci fi/YA/romance stories are out there that are this awesome!
