Swipe - Evan Angler I don’t know about you but I was immediately drawn in from the summary. Weird technology? Bizarre future? Conspiracies? You know I’m in and I wasn’t disappointed.The book does share similar characteristics with other science fiction books. I’ve been trying to pick my brain to figure out what book it reminds me of but I still can’t figure it out. Oh well. It’s a good blend of science fiction. It takes the ideas of technology that we’ve seen in other books but makes it its own.Eh, Logan was okay. He’s a pretty typical protagonist in a MG book. I guess I can’t relate to middle school boys too well. Erin was awesome! She’s very take charge and able to take care of herself. She’s even a computer hacker at 13! That’s pretty cool. Gotta love when authors give a girl some backbone.The story absolutely drew me in. I have a tendency to be a bit paranoid so I was totally on board with Logan being paranoid. I even started doing double takes around my room when he started finding stuff! The story moves pretty quickly so you’re glued to the book. Very interesting twist at the end but I’m a bit grumpy that it ended that way.The bottom line? It’s a fun sci-fi book for all ages. It would be a great stepping stone for younger readers who aren’t quite mature enough for the older YA science fiction books out there.*Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
