There are a couple of spoilers in this review. Read at your own risk…
Ella has been born and trained to be a pet. Yes, just like a dog, Ella is adopted by a family, micro chipped and brought home to live in her new home. She has been trained to be a perfect girl, she plays the piano, can make idle conversation, and can keep her own emotions at bay. She doesn’t know how to do the things normal girls can do, like read or swim. She is adopted into a Senator’s family. The Senator who helped pass the bill to make it ok to own humans again. Her life seems ideal….at first.
Ok, who else is as disturbed as I am about the plot of this book? Girls bred to be pets? People owning other people? Even though the book was really well written, it was hard to read. This author definitely gave you a subject matter that made you root for this girl to escape her slavery! Yes, there was a love interest, but there almost had to be. Someone was going to have to try to save her because she did not have the tools to do it herself. She couldn’t read! How do you get on a bus if you don’t know where it’s going? She was never taught about money. How do you survive if you don’t know how much a dollar is worth?
As this book went along the message got even creepier. Even though no one took advantage of her sexually, you knew that at some point that was going to happen. Luckily this girl had good instincts and a few people around her that were just as disturbed by what was going on, and determined to help her. This was good, but disturbing, so I guess the author did her job and made me think. ❤❤❤❣
