Perception

Eternal Life Is To Die For

Seventeen year old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP—a genetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on prime water-front property along side other equally beautiful people with extended life spans.
Her brother Liam is missing.

Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they’ve created between those who have and those who don’t. He doesn’t like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically.

Zoe’s carefree life takes a traumatic turn. She’s in trouble and it turns out that Noah, the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her.

PERCEPTION is a dystopian romance Young Adult novel that takes place in the not too distant future in a world changed by climate extremes, natural disasters and impending wars, and where scientific breakthroughs cause class divisions—both financially and philosophically. It explores the clash between faith and science and how differences can separate us as enemies or rally us together. And in some cases, even in the midst of betrayal and personal crisis, there’s room to fall in love.

Lee Strauss weaves together a great tale of intrigue and mystery. Zoe is one of those characters that you feel for even though, at times, you want to hate her guts. Noah, on the other hand, is one of those characters who draws the short end of the stick all the time. The pairing of these two characters brings forth a dynamic tale of differences between two people who are like yin and yang to one another.
Exciting, suspenseful and romantic. A good read.

This was an interesting, fast-paced, and well-thought-out novel. Consistent characterization and kept me interested the whole way through.
