Lexa Pate, seventeen-year-old thief extraordinaire, has burned a bridge or two in her life. You don’t make a career out of stealing other people’s property without making enemies.
When a risky job goes from bad to worse, Lexa and her adopted family find themselves on Precipice Corporation’s hit list because they’ve accidentally stolen the wrong thing—plans for a new model of genetically-engineered super humans. Now every bounty hunter, cop on the take, and snitch in the city is after them.
Lexa’s world crumbles around her as she fights to keep her family safe even as someone strolls out of her forgotten past. Quinn says he knows who Lexa really is, but can she trust a stranger she met while robbing his boss?
More importantly, does she really want to know what Quinn has to tell her?
Based on the fairy tale Pinocchio, UNSTRUNG takes you into a near future world where the lines between fake and real are blurred, all that’s pristine isn’t always innocent, and being a criminal isn’t always wrong.
A great YA read
** I received a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**
Wow. What I great book. I am left wanting more !
It had a slow start..
The made up "cuss words" became annoying quickly.
"What the frak" I mean really? or how about "oh stars" or"Old piece of shast".. Umm.. Ok
After a while I just started adding the appropriate words to these sentences in my mind. Clean is fine, but I think the author could have done without all the implied words and just bypassed them all together.
Even what the heck or oh shoot would have been easier on the reader. I don't think they added anything to the story.
Other than that I loved this book.
Can't wait see what the future hold for Quinn and Lexa!!
