Book Review/Giveaway - Diseased Ones by Danielle Harrington

The Diseased Ones
Danielle Harrington
(The Hollis Timewire Series, #1)
Published by: Acorn Publishing
Publication date: February 8th 2020
Genres: Dystopian, Young Adult
On the morning of her 16th birthday, Hollis Timewire receives the worst possible news. She can’t become a citizen of the world. She’s a Diseased One.
Born with a biomarker that bestows dangerous, brain-altering powers, Hollis is forced to hide underground with other Diseased Ones, who believe that the government falsified history to cover up their genocide.
Now Hollis must discover the truth, and is willing to risk anything, including her powers, to go back home.

My Thoughts:  The Diseased Ones starts out with action and I got so involved with Hollis and everything that was happening to her that I just couldn't put the book down until I had completed it.  I was/and would have been mortified to find out that not only was I a "diseased one" but to have my parents just hand me over so easily as hers did. So much for family virtue and all that.

This was such an interesting and fast moving story finding out about all the lies and other diseased folks and their "powers" and a debut to boot! I can't wait for the next part of this story to come! plus I am in love with that gorgeous cover! Love Love Love
