BOOK REVIEW ONLY EVER YOURS BY LOUISE O’NEILL

freida and isabel have been best friends their whole lives. Now, aged sixteen and in their final year at the School, they expect to be selected as companions – wives to wealthy and powerful men.

The alternative – life as a concubine – is too horrible to contemplate.

But as the intensity of the final year takes hold, the pressure to be perfect mounts. isabel starts to self-destruct, putting her beauty – her only asset – in peril.

And then into this sealed female environment, the boys arrive eager to choose a bride.

freida must fight for her future – even if it means betraying the only friend, the only love, she has ever known…

I finished this in the early hours of this morning and my mind was blown !

I was eager to read this book after hearing great reviews and even more after it won the YA book prize this year .

This is a clever dystopian masterpiece that took my breath away and made me think . I hated the character megan ,ultimate bitchy girl who wont stop till shes got what she wants .

The eves strive for perfection at whatever cost and makes for some eerie reading .

In todays society where theres so much pressure to look good Louise captures all that and magnifies by 100 to create this fantastic coming of age book .

Definitely food for thought and I recommend to teenage girls ,I will be passing on to Estelle .

I look forward to reading more from this writing genius .
