The Chosen One : My Thirteenth Book Review

Summary : Thirteen-year-old Kyra has grown up in an isolated polygamous community without questioning her father’s three wives and her twenty brothers and sisters. Or at least without questioning them much—if you don’t count her secret visits to the Mobile Library on Wheels to read forbidden books, or her meetings with the boy she hopes to choose for herself instead of having a man chosen for her. But when the Prophet decrees that Kyra must marry her 60-year-old uncle—who already has six wives—Kyra must make a desperate choice in the face of violence and her own fears of losing her family.


My Opinion : This book by Carol Lynch Williams was great. I enjoyed reading it a lot. I couldn't stop thinking about it.  I loved and still love  it!

Characters : Kyra had a great personality. She was 13 years old and faced with a wedding with her uncle. Ugh!  I loved her a lot. Her perspective was mature considering that she's 13 years old.

Laura was a good friend to Kyra.

Joshua was her 'boyfriend' or something like that. He was sweet, but I hated that he didn't come back for Kyra!

There were other characters, but I don't see why I should elaborate.

5/5 stars
