The Girl Who Dared to Think: By Bella Forrest

Zoey Holmquist-Kuhn, Writer

The world has fallen to ruin, all that remains is a huge tower where all surviving humans live. Everyone in the tower is divided into ranks based on their loyalty to the tower and happiness level. If your rank falls too low, there are consequences. Liana Castell’s rank is low, she wants to be happy and loyal to the tower but she has so many unanswered questions and forbidden thoughts just pop into her head. But then she meets someone, someone who can change her ranking without changing her thoughts. The only problem is that it’s illegal. 

The Girl Who Dared to Think presents a well thought out and beautifully complex world that is falling apart. People are confused even though they shouldn’t be and it creates a universe where you wonder where you’d stand and how long it would take you to climb to the top. It gives you a new way to think about your freedom and what would happen if it suddenly revolved around a number assigned to you. Bella Forrest has created a masterful story that relates to many types of readers and people and allows them to escape their problems for a while to enter another world.
