Free to Fall

We rated this book:


Sixteen-year-old Rory Vaughn, just like almost everyone else, uses Lux to help make decisions. She consults Lux for everything, or almost everything. So when she hears the Doubt on the plane trip to her dream school, Theden Academy, she freaks out. The Doubt, an “irrational” inner voice, had been silenced for years. But the Doubt doesn’t go away this time, and Rory finds herself listening to it. Her mother who had died when Rory was born, had also gone to Theden Academy, but left before graduation. Or at least that’s what Rory’s father knew. As Rory finds her mother’s medical records it says she was kicked out because she had gone crazy from the Doubt. But after becoming friends with Anti-Lux North, Rory begins to question the way she has always lived.

I really liked this book. I like stories where a handful of people try to take down a corrupt society. It’s a lot like the anime show Psycho-Pass, set in the near-future, with a decision-making program so people don’t have make their own choices. But I liked this a lot better because it’s more positive. It’s a great story and really makes you think.
