Meet The Second Chance Institute (SCI): Earth’s benevolent non-profit by day, Thera’s totalitarian regime by night. Their motto: Because Everyone Deserves a Second Chance™. Reality: the SCI subjects Second Chancers to strict controls and politically motivated science experiments like Cleaving—forced lifetime union between two people who have sex.
Meet Kira Donovan. Fiercely loyal, overly optimistic, and ensnared by the promise of a full-ride college scholarship, Kira signs the SCI Recruit contract to escape memories of a tragedy that left her boyfriend and friends dead.
Meet Blake Sundry. Bitter about being raised in Exile and his mother’s death, Blake’s been trained to infiltrate and destroy the SCI. Current barrier to success? His Recruit partner—Miss Goody Two Shoes Kira Donovan.
Meet Ethan Darcton. Born with a defective heart and resulting inferiority complex, Ethan’s forced to do his SCI elite family’s bidding. Cleave-worthy Kira Donovan catches his eye, but the presiding powers give defect-free Blake Sundry first dibs.
Full of competing agendas, romantic entanglements, humor, twists and turns, daynight is Megan Thomason’s debut young adult dystopian novel and first in the daynight series.
My Review: If you like Dystopian then you will LOVE this book. The SCI (second chance institute) is where you go to forget about your past. However there are so many different plots at the SCI, you are running into trouble full throttle. It is the same old story money and power, but it is told in such a unique way, that you will be hooked to see the bad guys lose power.
Now for the main characters. Kira, Blake and Ethan are in a love triangle. However Ethan is inferior due to his defect. They are all likable characters and they all deserve true love. I like how the story was told in different perspectives, so that you got close to each of the characters, without someone else's opinion of them. I got a copy to review, however all opinions are my own!
