My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Madeline has spent her life training and preparing for the day she would be eligible to put herself up for auction at eighteen. She wants nothing more to escape from Anron Life Limited and being a human lab rat and be purchased by another company called Merce that is technology oriented.

On the day of the auctions though Maddie finds herself still standing after all of the others have been auctioned off and she’s told that she’s not on the list. Now it comes to light that she was never able to be sold and that Anron owns her outright and now they want to put her to death.

Dissolution is a rather short read that you can see touches of other dystopian novels such as Divergent, Hunger Games and The Giver. The teen MC is set to find out where she will be sent the rest of her life and then things go wrong for her at the ceremony. In this book Maddie finds herself needing to fight back against the corporations in control.

What I found with this one that kept me from rating a bit higher is that it has that novella curse to it that I just found myself wanting a bit more out it when done. Being so short it was a good enough story but it could have been great if things get expanded and explained with more depth than is possible in a novella.

Overall, 3.5 stars. A good read but could have used more expanding to be better.

I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
