All about Seize Today:
Seventeen-year-old Olivia Dresden is a precognitive. Since different versions of people’s futures flicker before her eyes, she doesn’t have to believe in human decency. She can see the way for everyone to be their best self-if only they would make the right decisions. No one is more conflicted than her mother, and Olivia can only watch as Chairwoman Dresden chooses the dark, destructive course every time. Yet Olivia remains fiercely loyal to the woman her mother could be.
But when the chairwoman captures Ryder Russell, the striking and strong-willed boy from the rebel Underground, Olivia sees a vision of her own imminent death…at Ryder’s hand. Despite her bleak fate, she rescues Ryder and flees with him, drawing her mother’s fury and sparking a romance as doomed as Olivia herself. As the full extent of Chairwoman Dresden’s gruesome plan is revealed, Olivia must find the courage to live in the present-and stop her mother before she destroys the world.
Our Review of Seize Today:
Wow. Just, wow. Pintip Dunn concludes her sparkling Forget Tomorrow series with this gem of a dystopian ya offering.
Did I say, wow?
Seize Today is beautifully and expertly plotted and paced, and the stakes are so real and meaningful, they kept me turning pages like mad. Pintip is a master of emotions and description, too. Just a beautiful and powerful read.
Olivia shines as the main character. I loved watching her bloom and blossom. She was written with sensitivity, interesting flaws, authenticity, and a beautiful and caring heart. All of these traits combine to make her an endearing and courageous heroine.
Run, don’t walk to get this one. Readers, you will love the brilliant story.
An advanced copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for a fair review.
