Sudasa doesn’t want to be a wife and Kiran, a boy forced to compete in the test to become her husband, has other plans as well. Sudasa’s family wants nothing more than for their daughter to do the right thing and pick a husband who will keep her comfortable–and caged. Kiran’s family wants him to escape by failing the tests. As the tests advance, each thwarts the other until they slowly realize that they might want the same thing.
5 Signs to Know That You Will Love 5 to 1
1.) You love unique yet realistic dystopians. It’s one of those stories that are just so plausible–it’s one of those books that will make you fear the future. And it’s fantastic.
2.) You love reading in verse… or not. It honestly doesn’t matter if you’re a prose or verse fan. This is my first book half-written in verse and I loved it!
3.) You want to meet a main characters with strong beliefs. Both Sudasa and Kiran are such passionate people when it comes to what they think is right, and they certainly will fight hard for their beliefs.
4.) You love diverse books. Because this book is set in India. And you learn a lot about their culture.
5.) You are a human being and/or are not. Because really, anyone will love this book.
