Virus by Mary Chapman

Virus (Shades)

This book reminded me of Matched by Ally Condie not in a copy cat way but it has the same vibe and similar world.

Everything everybody does is controlled by a computer programme and basically it goes wrong. 

We follow Penna who realises that something is wrong but doesn't really know what to do. 
Its a creepy little story about a world that isn't too difficult to imagine. Virus kind of touches upon the issues the world would face if we over populated. Somebody high up has decided that the teenagers should be killed off and sets up the virus to do so. 

I was gripped with this plot which is amazing at only 62 pages long. 

Thanks For Reading
