But when Jadeite must go against the societies’ rules to acquire medicine for her sick brother from the primitive people who live over the ridge, her eyes are opened to what the perfect society really is—a mirage built on lies and murder—she must put on her own facade and fool her teachers, and especially Mattie, the future leader of United Society who has marked Jadeite to be his wife, to believe that all is well in United Society.
At least until she can attempt her escape.
I was hooked from the first page of Jadeite’s Journey. Stein does a wonderful job of creating a futuristic world, located between western Colorado and Denver, her vivid descriptions transporting me into the story where I could see, taste, smell, feel, and hear what was happening along with Jadeite.
While the genre is science fiction, I found the story to have “edge-of-your-seat” thriller elements and a romantic subplot which blossomed into a poisonous obsession.
As Jadeite learns the truth about United Society and Mattie and how dangerous they both are, I could feel my pulse race as she sneeked around the streets and crossed over the border, avoiding guard drones and citizens who would be happy to turn her in, all to risk her life for medicine for her brother.
This book asks some interesting questions about society on a whole, one being whether or not it is worth giving up one’s freedoms, personal ambitions, individuality, and creativity for the good of the whole.
Can a perfect society be attained or is it all an illusion?
What if the world you lived in was based on nothing but lies? That is the reality seventeen year old Jadeite must face as her world comes crumbling down. Living in year 2616 A.D., Jadeite has the privilege of living in the utopian Union Society. Six hundred years prior, civil war came about, leading to one hundred years of chaos. Then came the revolution, and with it the Union Society who brought peace, prosperity and most importantly, equality to all citizens. Jadeite is doing well in school and has been selected for an important career placement. But her world is forever changed when she uncovers a secret her father has been keeping. The world and life she once thought she had, rapidly unravels and she finds nothing is as it seems. While YA Dystopian quickly became a favorite of mine, it was swiftly overrun with mediocrity. Rare was it to find distinctive world's and plot twists that were more than the formulated rinse and repeat. Lucinda Stein has managed to break through the basic formula and present a unique added flavor to this genre. Added elements of technologically advanced science fiction mixed with heart-pounding thriller aspects, elevates this to a distinctively different category all its own. JADEITE'S JOURNEY is an enticing labyrinth of intrigue, suspense, and plot twists that will continue to stun you until its shocking end.
