The Book of Ivy (YA)
Book #103 Read in 2015
The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel (YA)
This was a great dystopian read and a great series starter. Ivy is arranged to marry Bishop, the President's son. Her father has hated the President for years and wants Ivy to work against her in-laws, getting secrets for him and eventually killing Bishop. What he hadn't factored into his plans was that Ivy would fall in love with her new husband. She struggles to find a way of saving his life without betraying her family, even if it is at a huge cost for her.
This book was a great read and the characters were interesting and complex. It had elements of mystery and romance in it. High school students would enjoy this book, as well as adults. I hope to start #2 today.
