of time getting to know these characters and I enjoyed the journey they took in this book. They were brave and humorous and I especially liked how they challenged the status quo. The author has set up deep character arcs for them that will allow us to witness their final transformation when we follow them through the end of the trilogy.
Everything changes. A filthy, dirty, diseased boy shows up and causes quite a disturbance. He’s from the other world, the disease ridden, wasteland
where feces and lack of nutrition among other monstrosities sicken and kill its people. Mallinjger has only two weeks to live. SoWellesbury and his friend make it their quest to figure out what’s wrong and save the boy. The more they investigate, they realize they’ve taken on more than they can handle.
The premise of this book is compelling. And the two world are very much like what we have here on at earth. If you enjoy dystopian novels, you will love this book. It will make you appreciate things you take for granted. The writing is tight and sharp. Wonderful plot and plot twist with a final twist that leads into the next installment of the trilogy and leaves you hungry for the next book. Excellent characterization. Quick pacing. This was a great book . It’s full of mystery and suspense. The main characters search for a cure and find so much more — I’m sure they wished at times they could turn back the Hand of time. The price for a perfect Society ... is it ever worth it?

they can drop, the other a filthy, disease-ridden wasteland.
Black and White is a Science Fiction novel set between two very different lands. On the one hand we have Whitopolis (Harmonia), pure white and sterile as its name suggests. On the other we have Loretania, where dirt and disease run ragged. These two lands instantly reminded me of our own world, with Whitopolis like our first world countries with decent healthcare and a wealth of opportunity, and Loretania mimicking the third world countries, where the death toll is high and life unfair. When a young, dirt-clad boy materializes in the centre of Whitopolis, the local government become enraged.
I honestly loved the premise behind this book. The idea of a world without dirt or disease seems peculiar, yet is also as fascinating as it is troubling. I began to wonder how such a land as Whitopolis could function for so long in such an immaculate state. Certain aspects of this sparkling white land intrigued me, such as their use of synthesized food and their lack of plant and animal life. The unique sport of Gravball was just another of many interesting concepts and had rules which were easy enough to follow.
In addition to the features of Whitopolis’ culture, I myself myself particularly fond of main characters Wellesbury and Ezmerelda, two youths with curious and agile minds. Ezmerelda’s sense of humour stood out to me as a great coping mechanism against an otherwise apathetic society. Both her and Wellesbury’s determination made me proud to root for them from start to finish.
We see only a little of Loretania and in that brief time, I can safely say that I would never want to go there, let alone live there. Faeces and a severe lack of food were two of the biggest problems I observed. It makes me feel for those who are still suffering in a world such as ours. I find myself appreciating all the little things I take for granted, such as technology, a good education, close friends, and the support of a loving family.
The one dislike I had was of the corrupt government system, which draws a parallel to our own here in England. I can personally identify with Wellesbury’s feeling out of place within such a polished society. Black and White is a story I won’t soon forget. The words flowed beautifully, moving me in a way that had me questioning our modern way of life.
A brilliant read.
Rated 5 stars.
Recommended for lovers of Science Fiction and Fantasy.
