and needs is to release her father from prison I loved how important family was to Leyla and a central theme in the story I know what it s like to be separated from your family for long periods of time, so I could understand how terribly Leyla missed her father I was rooting for her the whole time.Two things about Leyla that irked me quite a lot though were her immaturity and naivety Yes she was a kickass pilot and a very courageous girl but she trusted blindly, behaved talked like a twelve year old at times and jumped into dangerous situations recklessly So is that really courage Moreover, while I usually enjoy when animals are featured in a story, I found the puppy Jojo here to have no personality whatsoever And yet she is one of the central characters and mentioned in almost every single page It s sad to say because I adore animals but I did not care one bit about Jojo.Even if this wasn t a complete winner, I m still curious about the sequel because that cliff hanger hit me hard Ouch Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin There are so many things I loved about this book, I don t really know where to start So it s set in the future where the world is

out why her father was wrongfully arrested Leyla is such a fantastic character She is determinedly faithful to her family, and has a fantastic connection to her Muslim faith I don t think I ve ever read a Muslim character is sci fi before She s also clever and brave, even though she fears the unknown depths of the water, and naively believes a lot of things that maybe she shouldn t I loved her journey and development in this book It was done so well and so naturally, and as a reader who starts the book immersed in Leyla s world, you really feel like you re taking this journey with her completely There are so many other things that I loved about this book butI m afraid of giving too much away Just make sure you read it because not only did it have me on tenterhooks as I was reading, but I also know that I m going to be thinking about this book for a long time coming Can t wait for the second book, and for anything else that Shah writes, because she s clearly a very, very talented

excited and nervous to dive into this because it s one of my most highly anticipated reads of the year, but it s needless to say that the book surpassed all of my expectations.Shah s writing is captivating in a way that allows the reader to fully submerge themselves in a unique underwater world and be swept away by the characters and the story Leyla McQueen is both fierce and brave, despite her fear of the unknown and the monsters that lurk in the depths of the sea She s also rather na ve but isn t afraid to ask the difficult questions And she s a submersible racer who is completely driven by the love she has for her family including her dog Jojo.Leyla s deep appreciation for her Afghan heritage as well as her Muslim faith was such a joy to read about in a sci fi world It s the smallest things like saying bismillah before starting a race that made me cry in representation, identifying Leyla as Muslim without any emphasis on her Muslimness.Despite the futuristic setting, the author still manages to keep it anchored to the present the Old World through references to iconic landmarks, annual events and famous people amongst all the advances in technology Quite frankly, the world building is both fascinating and pretty Wilde I feel nostalgic just thinking about it so I can t wait to return to it in the sequel That slow burn enemies to lovers romance is to die for.Overall, this book gives us hope of surviving in a post apocalyptic world where the Earth s surface has been made uninhabitable It gives us hope in the face of senseless violence, reminding us that individuals who act alone do not represent the majority of a larger group And it gives us hope for a better future by urging us to stop clinging on to the past I was one of the lucky few who got to read and fall in love with this book Yesssss This book is insanely good The characters aren t your typical YA characters, rather all have their own back stories and needs and goals Plus Leyla, the protagonist, is a British Muslim girl of Afghan descent, and being both South Asian and Muslim myself, I related in so many ways to her.This book will knock your socks off, world As Taylor Swift said,

totally blown Where should I even start Shah s debut has one of the best, creepiest, and most magnificent post apocalyptic universes It was cinematic, detailed, and incredibly vivid All the sci fi bits were well written and it was clear that Shah did a tremendous amount of research in order to get them right, and I applaud her for that The characters and the plot tied each other perfectly, and I enjoyed Leyla s dangerous and risky quest to get her father back Ari was a surprising character in this story because he started off being all mysterious and quiet, but I promise you that you ll enjoy his side of the story as well.This is me, hyperventilating about this outstanding debut, just mere hours after finishing it Full and proper review to come closer to the publication date Thank
