Variant by Robison Wells

What was it about this book that made me like it so much that I’d give it 4 stars? Well, that’s hard to pinpoint, really. I suppose, then, that I should just list what I liked and what I didn’t like and hope that you, dear reader, can see that you really should read this book.
