I'm sorry I'm late. I just don't know why I'm so spaced out. I forgot it's Friday and that I need to put a post up. I also forgot to do the journal entry for this book so I pulled out an ATC to sort of match the storyline. I'm cheating again. Oh, well.:)
I had fun doing this "art reviews" every month this year even though I fell off the wagon the last couple of months. Thanks Darcy for making this a fun experiment. :)

4*Retta seemed like every other protagonist in this kind of genre. A teenager in her last year of school who was raised by one parent alone so she had some issues because of her Mom’s death. Of course she found a hot guy to swoon over and fall in love with within a heartbeat. I did like that she openly took a stand against the general beliefs even though it was triggered by her falling in love with an android.
Hemingway was a total hotty at the beginning but then he became a total jerk. I understood why he broke up with Retta and I was feeling it but then after her attack I thought he came to his senses and they’d go back together. That’s what Retta thought, too, but he was kissing her one second and then the next telling her that being with an android was easier for him. I so wished right then Retta would slap him.
I was a little confused about the running away thing and I had an issue with the weird marriage ceremony because it kind of felt like the author had to take the safe road with the whole “waiting until marriage” thing. But all in all it was a uniquely written story and I enjoyed reading it even though the “revolution” was over pretty quickly and everyone was happy.
