Every year on Assignment Day the path of every 18 year olds life is laid out. Some are given jobs and others are sent off to fight the war and never return.
The first 18 years of Seven life were filled with lies. When Assignment day comes for Seven the assignments shatter everything she ever believed in. The rules force everyone to accept their fates but Seven decides to go against the Decision Makers wishes and does something that has never been done before.
I really enjoyed this book. It is a real page turner. I normally don't read books in this genre. This is my first time reading a book like this and I found it to be gripping.

This book raises a lot of If questions. The word If could mean different things to different people. For example If- I were a better person. If- I were rich, thinner, or prettier. If- I were male or female, shorter, or taller. If- I had been born to a different set of parents. If- I had more friends. If- I had a better job. That one little word can take you places or make you crazy.
The kindle version of this book has 72 pages. It also has 12 chapters. The chapters are done in the number chapter format. The chapters are short.
I really enjoyed his book. It has taught me you can't be afraid of life...you should embrace it. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.

On the kindle version of this book there are no page numbers either.
One thing I find frustrating is reading a book that is in a series and you find out it is the 3rd book of the series. Then you don't know what is going on because there are book 1 and 2 before the 3rd one. So if you are new to this series you might want to read book 1 and 2 first.
Max has to make a decision will it be one that changes her life or will it end in disaster.
Here is a blurb about the book. It is about two lovers who has one chance at happiness. Max went to Paris for college when she falls for a guy named Julien. Three years has gone by and the memory of Julien still haunts Max. Will she return to Paris in search for Julien. In order to find out the answer you need to pick up this book and read it.
I find this book a bit confusing because you don't know who is telling the story. As I said before I would recommend reading books 1 and 2 first before reading this one. The first two books are tied into this story.
I did enjoy this book it is a real page turner. Looking forward to reading books 1 and 2 to get to know the characters better.

Here is a blurb of what the book is about. It is a story about being a 40 year old woman in the 21st century. The story follows 5 women as they go through their lives as mothers, daughters, wives, sisters, and friends.
I came across this author through goodreads with a comment she wrote about her book in one of the groups we belong to.
This book raises a lot of questions and really makes you think. Here are some examples of the questions.
Is being 40 something in the 21st century all that different than when our mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers were in their 40s?
The feminist struggle for equality had to make things better for us women, right?
We are busy with kids, careers, houses, friends, and relationships, is this all there is to life?
Is life over when your marriage breaks down?
How do single moms do it?
Is dating in the 21st century all that different than in the past?
How does one keep the passion alive in a marriage that lasts?
I absolutely loved this book. I would highly recommend every woman should read this book. It is powerful and every woman can relate to the story.
