#BookReview: The XY by Virginia Bergin

About the Book:

From the author of H2O

She's been taught to fear him.
He's been taught to fear her.
What if they're both wrong?

In River's world, XYs are a relic of the past, along with things like war and violence. 

Thanks to the Global Agreements, River's life is simple, safe, and peaceful...until she comes across a body in the road one day. 

A body that is definitely male, definitely still alive.

River isn't prepared for this. 

There's nothing in the Agreements about how to deal with an XY. Yet one lies before her, sick, suffering, and at her mercy.

River can kill him, or she can save him. Either way, nothing will ever be the same.

My Review: I am just not sure what to say about this book. There were so many issues with it word choice, and so many trigger warnings that I would use up have this review if I tried to list them all but some of them are extremlly weird/off the wall discussions of gender, attempted rape, and murder. I ended up DNFing this one about 40% in.
