Book Review: Unison Spark

What if all the collected data points could paint a complete picture of who you are? What if it revealed something about yourself that you didn't know?
Andy Marino's Unison Spark combines elements of the Matrix, Aeon Flux, Twitter, Facebook, Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's Brave New World into a digital narrative. Easy to read and suspenseful, the book follows 15 year-old, blue pony-tailed Mistletoe as she tries to understand who she is in a complex world.
I appreciated that the book was free of vulgarity. If you enjoy DuPrau's Ember series with a dash of futuristic sci-fi, then Unison Spark should be on your must read list.
