  1. This is my first sci fi I m calling it sci fi lite, as opposed to hard sci fi , and I LOVE the beautiful cover Delacorte Press gave BRAVE NEW GIRL I ve posted the prologue on my Facebook page in the form of two photographs from the ARC If you d like to read it, take this link facebook rachelkvinceRachel Vincent


  2. I can t find anything of interest in this story It reminds me very much of the movie The Island which I enjoyed because it had hidden the element of view spoiler clones hide spoiler so the revelation at the end of the movie was a surprise.In this one, we know from the start the set up and the page after page of the heroine wondering why am I different or why this happened to me got tiring pretty fast.


  3. I LOVE books and movies about clones in dystopic futures So, when Rachel Vincent, one of my absolute favorite writters, announced this one months ago I was flabergasted Time went slowly to the release day and finally I got my hands into it And I loved this book and want the following one NOW hahaI did find out that this book was able to surprise me at every turn, so I won t offer much clues onto this review about what is all about Just read the back cover if you must and jump into it I loved how [...]


  4. I am a fan of Rachel Vincent, so reading Brave New Girl was a no brainer for me Thank goodness for that, because this book was a blast An emotionally charged blast, but a blast Dahlia 16 is not unique She is one of 5,000 girls created equally, to serve the city as a grower of food She lives her life surrounded by other girls with her own face, each one blending into the next There are no emotions for Dahlia 16 and her family, no pride or desire, need or want At least, there shouldn t be But once [...]


  5. 3.5 5 starsBrave New Girl is the first book in a new YA dystopian series The author calls it science fiction lite.The narrator is 16 year old Dahlia, also known as Dahlia 16.Dahlia is one of 5000 girls who look identical to her.In this world there are large groups of people clones who look the same Dahlia 16 lives in Lakeview and is studying to grow vegetables I thought that this was extremely fascinating All of her friends Poppy 16 and Violet 16 look exactly like her.Things are going great for [...]


  6. In defense of Brave New Girl, I just want to make this clear I m not putting this on this shelf because I DNFed it or because the author behaved badly Neither happened As far as I know, regarding the latter It had to be on here though, because the premise is so very repelling to me that I couldn t help my instant Hell no, reaction Secondary reason is that I don t enjoy Vincent s books any Thinking about them gets me slightly angry I wish her focus would ve shifted, but the concept of the story a [...]


  7. I don t know how I managed to bang out the second half of the book this morning, but damn that was pretty intriguing The first half of the book was a lot of setup and dancing around breaking the rules, but the second half had some higher stakes and action I am absolutely mad at myself for reading this so early because what a cliffhanger I m soooo ready for the next book already FULL REVIEW INITIAL EXCITEMENTI went into this book with really no expectations When I read the description on the ARC [...]


  8. 3 1 2 stars Wow, Rachel Vincent can write one heck of a page turner.Before I get into my review, I feel like I should put a disclaimer out there yes, this is one of those YA books One of those cheesy dystopians with pretty terrible world building and a teen romance to boot I went into it with little to no expectations, and I d suggest you do the same But, regardless of all its flaws, this was a book that took me on a wild ride and I loved every minute of it.This book is loosely based on the dyst [...]


  9. It s true that Rachel Vincent s BRAVE NEW GIRL covers familiar dystopian ground but the writing is tight, the plot tensely drawn, the stakes run deep and believable and HIGH, and the romance is exciting Dystopian may not be either brave or new in 2017, but this book is both.


  10. NO WHAT KIND OF CLIFFHANGERUgh It was good, but felt sort of like a prequel for future books But ugh the cliffhanger I CAN T WAIT THAT LONG


  11. This review was originally posted hereon my blog Brave New Girl is the first book I ve read by Rachel Vincent, but she is an extremely popular author who might be best known for her Shifter series Let me start of with this though if you are looking for a hard hitting dystopian that draws parallels to our real world and scary could be s of our society, don t read this If you are in the mood for a light sci fi dystopian novel, then this book is for you Brave New Girl is fun It s basically a YA rom [...]


  12. I was expecting so much from this book I got 20% in before giving up She looks exactly the same as 5,000 other girls and the guy she had a 5 minute conversation in an elevator looks just like everyone else in his class caste, but they find eachother in the crowd all the time After her 5 minute conversation she just can t concentrate on anything ever again, blah blah blah I don t understand why a lot of YA authors these days write stories where meeting some dude is the catalyst for the girl to c [...]


  13. I m going to recommend this book to someone who likes futurist and different sci fi ideas This book kind of reminds me of The Uglies, but in a way that s less mature or thought out Ouch, I know sorry if you disagree Also recommends to people who have read the Gender Games Okay Real Talk By now you can probably tell I did not like this book I love Rachel Vincent, but this book was extremely lacking compared to some of her other works, such as The Shifters series I m not sure what happened, but I [...]


  14. This is like someone went to a YA dystopia Cliche o matic machine and took the first 50 results.Dahlia is one of 5000 clones, but something makes her SPECIAL eg, interested in sex, unlike other clones Trigger is one of some fewer number of clones as a soldier, he s automatically interested in sex because he needs that for muscles somehow , and he sees her specialness They get caught You are both hereby remanded to the custody of Management for violation of the fraternization directive, one of th [...]


  15. This book falls into the realm of books that i dearly love the ones that make you think what if the world really worked this way In this one you got genome who are totally perfect in every way and all the rest of them look exactly like you You grown up with them you, live with them, and you all believe your learning to achieve what you where created for to best serve the community Like with any book this seems like utopia the perfect world, the perfect life but we all know things are not perfect [...]


  16. 3.5 4 starsEven though this was run of the mill dystopia and something not wholly original, it was still an engaging read and a story I was invested in from beginning to end I would have read it in one sitting had I not started it so late the night before I think I know where the next book is headed, if Never Let Me Go is any indication, but that doesn t dampen my excitement I m definitely eager to see the bigger picture of this world I also really liked the narrator, even if she falls somewhat [...]


  17. 2.5 stars The most significant thing I can think to say about this book is that it completely failed to distinguish itself from any of the many other dystopian novels I ve read in recent years Simply put, it felt cliche and cookie cutter Although the book is well written, it s missing the necessary spark that, for me, makes a book like this stand out from the crowd I really didn t connect with either the characters or plot and had to force myself to finish it, which makes me sad since dystopian [...]



  18. The story was boring at the beginning but sped up about 3 4 of the way in Before thatI was going to write meh I would still, honestly, describe it that way but if you love a good plot twist and cliffhanger will keep trudging through Even if you knew one was coming it was still pretty good I can t wait to read the next one mostly cause i finally got invested towards the end and I want to know what happens next very clean book



  19. With a title reminiscent of Aldous Huxley s 1932 classic dystopian title, Brave New World, Brave New Girl features a likeable protagonist in Dahlia 16 She enjoys her work as a gardener, and only occasionally does she feel a twinge of competitiveness or ambition as she goes about her labor Admittedly, she isn t the most patient of girls, but her produce is healthy and fast growing Dahlia 16 has never questioned her lot or the fact that hers is the face that many other girls in the compound where [...]


  20. Just Gaaaahhhhggghhh I m so sick of authors not finishing their damn books At least have the courtesy to wrap up all your dangling ends Don t Just Stop.This was pretty good and would have got 4 The audio is pleasantly done.There are some issues but I like Rachel Vincent and realising it s a new genre for her I think I would stuck to the positives But this new thing where someone writes half a book, makes you endure 5 hours of introduction to the world because none of us have ever read a dystopia [...]


  21. This book adds a captivating twist on the concepts of Brave New World It puts a unique sixteen year old girl in society full of clones, where seeing her face all around her is all she s ever known All it takes is one moment in a broken elevator talking to someone who doesn t share her face to set her down a path to destroy everything she s ever known and discover so much Truly the only think that I didn t enjoy about this book was the ending it tried to leave you at a cliff hanger, but didn t q [...]


  22. The first half of this one is a bit slow, we are learning the world, the sameness, how things work and how the once incident in the elevator changed Dahlia s world so much How wanting to know is a bad thing, on how questioning things is a bad thing It is only when Dahlia s world starts to spin out of control that things become interesting You aren t really sure what is going on, you feel much like Dahlia, then the big bomb comes at the end and you really start questioning everything and the los [...]


  23. Not my favorite book by Rachel Vincent, but has promise After reading 100 hours, this book was a bit of a let down However, it could be the start of a great new young adult series Dahlia was a very curious clone Add a hot guy in the mix and lots of secrets, you get Brave New Girl However, the twists at the very end really had me wanting So I will be continuing the series and give it four glittery stars


  24. O MY GOD Freaking Awesome That was definitely a total roller coaster obviously ONE OF THE BEST SCIENCE FICTION I EVER READ1 You re beautiful, Dahlia I frown and my focus finds his eyes again Beautiful isn t a concept we apply to people There is beauty in the graceful arch of a delicate growing vine or the plump perfection of grapes ready to be picked There is beauty in the rambling shoreline of the lake that gives our city its name and in the explosion of color across the sky when the sun goes d [...]
