#BookReview: Body Parts by @JessKapp @DiversionBooks @Netgalley

 
People would kill for her body.

Raised in an elite foster center off the California coast, sixteen-year-old Tabitha’s been sculpted into a world-class athlete. Her trainers have told her she’ll need to be in top physical condition to be matched with a loving family, even though personal health has taken a backseat outside the training facility. While Tabitha swims laps and shaves seconds off her mile time, hoping to find a permanent home, the rest of the community takes pills produced by pharmaceutical giant PharmPerfect to erase their wrinkles, grow hair, and develop superhuman strength.

When Tabitha’s finally paired, instead of being taken to meet her new parents, she wakes up immobile on a hospital bed. Moments before she’s sliced open, a group of renegade teenagers rescues her, and she learns the real reason for her perfect health: PharmPerfect is using her foster program as a replacement factory for their pill-addicted clients’ failing organs. And her friends from the center, the only family she’s ever known, are next in line to be harvested.

Determined to save them, Tabitha joins forces with her rescuers, led by moody and mysterious Gavin Stiles. As they race to infiltrate the hospital and uncover the rest of PharmPerfect’s secrets, though, Tabitha finds herself with more questions than answers. Will trusting the enigmatic group of rebels lead her back to the slaughterhouse?

This one reminded of one of my favorite movies called The Island it stars Scarlet Johansen and o god I can't even think what his name is. But the movie is about the world where people are harvested for their organs etc. Basically, you can create a clone and use it when you need it.  Of course, it goes into you finding out along the way that no one knows that their clones are awake.   

Although in that movie there were no renegades I would say that this is The Island for teens.  I really loved how the book played out and parts of it even reminded me of The Maze Runner series.  I really loved all the characters and the book was well paced.  The ending was a little meh but I would love a part two to this one.  Come to think of it this one also reminded me of another book called The Body Institute by Carol Riggs.  So if you want something about how kids are having their bodies taken and how they get out of that situation to save others then check this one out.  It was well written and I couldn't put it down.
