Mini Review: Fever by Lauren DeStefano

Fever by Lauren DeStefano

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers (Feb 21, 2012)
Length: 352 pages
Format: Hardcover

Summary from Amazon:
The second book in The Chemical Garden Trilogy reveals a world as captivating—and as dangerous—as the one Rhine left behind in Wither.
Rhine and Gabriel have escaped the mansion, but they’re still in danger. Outside, they find a world even more disquieting than the one they left behind.
     Determined to get to Manhattan and find Rhine’s twin brother, Rowan, the two press forward, amid threats of being captured again…or worse.
     The road they are on is long and perilous—and in a world where young women only live to age twenty and men die at age twenty-five, time is precious. In this sequel to Lauren DeStefano’s harrowing Wither, Rhine must decide if freedom is worth the price—now that she has more to lose than ever.

I was not feeling this book. I would read a chapter then put it down then find something else to do. Then I would be like "Oh, I have to finish that book" and I would read another chapter. 
It was interesting to see what happened after Rhine escaped with Gabriel. But man did they have a hard time. It was just problem after problem for them. 
I really liked Maddie! She was just so smart and interesting! 
The ending was the best part (isn't it always?). I really liked that Linden finally learns the truth. 
I will be reading the next book because I want to know if she gets to Rowan and what happens with Gabriel. 
3.5/5 stars.
