Format: Paperback
I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

First Impression: A dark cover is sweetly foreboding, and the blurb makes for an interesting premise.

Characters: Geneva and a motley band of orphans are stranded on an island orphanage in the aftermath of a great natural disaster. With a strict headmistress and even tighter schedule, the children have little time for social interaction to start asking questions. What happened to their parents? Why are they confined to the compound?

After a bully receives a backlash of her own punishment, some of the orphans wonder if Geneva is more than she seems. The island holds secrets and magic from the time before. Fighting love and danger, Geneva takes on her world with true force in “Truth” The Geneva Project #1.

Wonderfully distinct characters leave room for growth and interpersonal development in this stunning debut by Christian Benjamin.

World Building: Benjamin provides a solid background while still leaving mystery for upcoming adventures in this first installment. I enjoyed the fresh approach to the post-apocalyptic / dystopian genre.

Writing Style: I was able to read straight through with little grammar or spelling errors. This is an appropriate read for anyone teen and up, with a true PG-13 atmosphere. I appreciated the focus was on the characters development personally and with their abilities, with romance as a product of friendship.

What I Liked: I’m a fan of books that encourage themes like self-discovery and growth. “Truth” holds valuable lessons for readers, while not throwing anything in your face. I enjoyed the build of action and tension, and am satisfied with how the first book in this series ended.

This review was first published at M's Bookshelf - http://mssbookshelf.blogspot.be

When Christina Benjamin approached me for a review, she pitched the book as being a mash-up between 'Harry Potter', 'Twilight' and 'The Hunger Games' - according to a fan. Although skeptical at first, I was sold. And more importantly, with expectations that high, I wasn't disappointed... at all! I absolutely loved it.
Discovering a 'new' world created by an author is always tricky. Usually it really comes down to 'love it or hate it'. It was clear though from the very first chapters, that I would love Christina Benjamin's world in The Geneva Project. It's great that you start discovering this world along with the main character. She too is just finding out about the island's history, hidden secrets and legends.
Geneva is an easy to love MC. She's impulsive, but she has a great heart and an endearing naivety about her you just got to love. She's always been the outsider longing to be a part of something and thanks to her (old & new) friends, she gets that chance and, most importantly, support.
It's easy to forget how young she still is, which is why the little diary fragments are just perfect.
Think 'Divergent' for the island's post-Apocalypse vibe and strong heroine with hidden 'powers', think 'The Hunger Games' for the difference in social classes and tasks assigned to them, think 'Harry Potter' for the close friends and the boarding school with evil headmistress (Umbridge!) and then forget about all of them, because 'The Geneva Project' is right up there with these series.
'Truth' a thrilling story about friendship and finding your place, set in an exciting world full of secrets and hidden magic.

I love this book so much. I heard about it at my school when Christina Benjamin was coming to do a meet and greet. I signed up to go and when she explained the book I was immediately hooked. I knew I had to read it. I just finished reading it for the 3rd time and I just love it. I hope Christina keeps writing books because she's amazing!

I couldn't put this book down. I stayed up too late just to finish reading it. I hope there are more books in the series, I can't wait to spend more time with these characters. I highly recommend this book.

I found this book really good to read. It seems unfinished and that there should be a sequel..
It's so good it is destined to become a best-seller.

My Review: I really enjoyed this book I felt it is quite a compelling read. The world the author creates is unique and yet very believable. I liked the idea of the orphans not named individually but all named either Jane for the girls and John for the boys only differentiated by numbers. The main character Jane 65 turns out to be the salvation of the island and is destined through magic to restore the people to an utopia type existence. Her journey of self discovery is the main plot of the story with enough twists and intrigue to keep the reader engaged. I think young readers and older ones alike would enjoy this story. I did feel as if the ending left you hanging a little I don't know if there is a sequel or not but it could use a little more wrapping up of the story. I also think the author would benefit from a professional edit it would take the story to a higher level. I give this a 4 star.
