"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

I also like the smart, kind, friend she found in Dr. Swinson. There are secondary people in the story, who aren't shown real deeply. I think mainly because they were still feeling their way around and just trying to stay alive. This book has the feel of a introductory book, just setting things up. It was a clean story, one that I like YA readers would enjoy.
On the downside is the fact that I didn't like how the book ended. Although it did end with some things solved, for now. There was hope, a maybe, when it came to Jenny and the man she finds she really likes.
It looks like more adventures are coming...
I received a copy of this book via Netgalley and these are my honest thoughts about it.
In this short (92 page) book, we meet Jenny Harding, a confident, spunky heroine who may be looking for a job but finds a mission instead. She immediately captures your attention (and your heart) by telling her story, hinting at a future yet to come.
I read this book in one sitting- not only because it was short, but because I simply couldn’t put it down. The plot is fast-paced, the characters interesting despite the limits of the length and the world intriguing and full of potential. Even though sci-fi isn’t necessarily my *thing*, I am quite hooked on this series.
There are a couple minor things that made me reluctant to give it five stars: Jenny, as the narrator, takes away suspense unnecessarily by commenting on important moments. I also have to admit that certain plot twists were fairly obvious to me (though this is not something that bothers me personally). I also feel like there would be room for expansion within this story, which would provide some extra time and space for character building and breathing between all the action.
Nevertheless, I truly enjoyed this book and will almost certainly buy the next book.
I would recommend this to readers who enjoy fast paced sci-fi novels with daring heroines.
I believe it's a good sign that I wanted it to continue when it ended. I'd like to know more about the main characters and what is really going on, which hopefully is or will be found in a sequel.
I was given a copy of this novel as part of Mystery/Thriller Week in exchange for an honest review.
