#BookReview of The Doubt Factory by @paolobacigalupi


The Doubt Factory


About the Book: 

Everything Alix knows about her life is a lie--at least according to the mysterious young man who's been stalking her. But could her dad really be a bad guy at the helm of an organization that covers up the deadly wrongdoings of some of the country's most rich and powerful? Alix has to make an impossible choice between her father and the young man she's not only falling for, but who's asking her to blow the whistle on the man who raised her. Could someone you have loved and have known for your whole life actually have the heart of a killer?

My Review: It is an action-packed young adult thriller and the story of an unlikely romance. There are constant twists and turns in the plot line that add up to an engrossing tale. It also conveys powerful messages about truth, different types of love and making the 'right' choice. What I liked most about this is the emotional story. Some of the plot twists were masterful. Others were a bit far-fetched. But it was great overall!!

Do I Recommend this book? Yup!
