There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The book is superbly paced and the plot - as I mentioned before - cleverly thought out and keeps the reader guessing and moving. The world building is similarly impressive and immersive, presenting a seemingly utopian society with undercurrents of dissent.
The characters are clear individuals, each with their own motivations, interests and goals and having worked with kids I would heartily recommend it to the middle school set, though I plan to give a copy to a sassy and outspoken 9 year old I know (big Elle vibes from her).
P.S - I'm logged into my husband's account so this will show like it's a review by him, but it's not. I can't remember my Amazon password and frankly am too lazy to work it out.
So¯\_(ツ)_/¯ .... buy this book.

At it's simplest this is a brilliant novel with themes of love, loss, friendship and adventure. It grabs you from the very start and doesn't let go.
Running under the surface of the story are compelling messages on gender, sexuality and power systems. The author doesn't force issues down the reader's throat. Instead they are subtly and carefully woven into the narrative.
Nor does the author simplify the world into patronising black and white clichés. The various characters (and the ideologies they represent are complex) are often conflicted and questioning of their respective realities. World views and assumptions (which echo our world without being preachy) are challenged by the young and old protagonists in clever ways. This is so hard to achieve, but Jo Zaida strikes a perfect balance between giving the reader a thoroughly enjoyable adventure to navigate and providing sumptuous food for thought.
As an adult reader I loved 'Misfit'. The characters are three dimensional and relatable. The world is fleshed out and authentic. The situations are exciting and gripping but always believable.
Highly recommended for the young as well as aged readers like me!!
