Review: IMMORAL CODE by Lillian Clark
I've been excited to read this book for some time. Ocean's Eight meets Breakfast Club? I mean, YES!!!! This book was everything I was hoping it would be: fast paced, high stakes, smart and exhilarating, but it was a lot more besides. It was ultimately a book about friendship and five young people navigating their way when the lines between right and wrong/ motive and means blur from white and black into gray. I adored the characters in this book. Every single one of them was complex and relatable, with completely distinct voices. An incredible feat considering this book was told in FIVE pov's. (Hello, hilarious and clever dialogue that had me cackling out loud to myself.) High school me would've wanted to be friends with every one of them. Their insecurities and hopes, strengths and weaknesses were laid bare and tested. Clark's writing is fresh and smart; funny and swoony as the situation demanded. In short, IMMORAL CODE has it all, and you do not want to miss it.
