Wither by Lauren de Stefano

witherAt the age of 16, Rhine Ellery has four more years left to live, thanks to a modern science genetic

time bomb. This means that  males live up to the age of 25 while females up to 20. Rhine is kidnapped

and sold as a bride. With only four more years to live Rhine tries desperately to escape and to find her

twin brother Rowan. However her husband Linden is hopelessly in love with her, she vows to do all

she can to escape. With the help of Gabriel she sets off to find her brother. This book is mixed with

love, betrayal, and even modern science. Along the way Rhine finds out that what she thought was the

truth was all a lie. This book really got me hooked, the reason was because it talked about science but

it didn’t go too deep, however there was more love and betrayal. All of it was just mixed up together

but in the end it all fitted together smoothly.
