I’ve got something new up at Girls in Capes!
Today’s review is for the YA novel THE WALLED CITY by Ryan Graudin, which follows three teens — Dai, Jin, and Mei Yee — who live in the eponymous walled city of Hak Nam.
While I absolutely loved this book, it took me three months (!) to actually finish reading it — which, for me, is an amazingly long time. It’s a beautiful book, and heart-breakingly difficult.
But you can read all about that over at GiC. An excerpt:
When I originally picked up The Walled City and read the back, I assumed it was a typical (and for me, boring) YA dystopian novel set in a Chinese or Chinese-inspired futuristic setting.
Spoiler alert: it’s not.
