As the third dystopian, futuristic, young adult book I read in a row, Wither really stood out to me as unique. DeStefano is an incredible writer whose diction and imagination created this beautiful prison that I could not escape from. If you do end up reading this, look for the 6 word sentence that broke my heart. Rhine, as a character, is very well-rounded, an unusual and refreshing find in teen books. In Wither, almost none of the predictions I made came close. I adored this book.
