#BookReview: Star-Crossed by @pintipdunn #Starcrossed #NetGalley @EntangledTeen


About the Book:

Only one can survive...

In a world where nutrition can be transferred via a pill, and society is split into Eaters and Non-Eaters, seventeen-year-old Princess Vela has a grave dilemma. 

Her father, the king, is dying, and only a transplant of organs from a healthy Non-Eater boy will save him.

Vela is tasked with choosing a boy fit to die for the king, which is impossible enough. 

But then Carr, the boy she's loved all her life, emerges as the best candidate in the Bittersweet Trials. 

And he's determined to win, because by doing so, he can save the life of his Non-Eater sister.

Refusing to accept losing the boy she loves, Vela bends the rules and cheats. But when someone begins to sabotage the Trials, Vela must reevaluate her own integrity―and learn the true sacrifice of becoming a ruler.

My Review: This book was so good! I am so excited that I got the chance to read this one. This one was full of world-building and some really great sci-fi! 

The story was very thought-provoking as well as new. I don't think that I have read anything quite like this story.  The characters were all fully formed and well I really love how their politics worked.  As well as the two trying to become the next ruler.  I really want to know what this author does with their next title. I have loved a few of her books and can not wait to get my hands on a finished copy of this one.
