4.0 out of 5 stars Damselfly, 25 Nov 2013
This review is from: Damselfly (Kindle Edition)
In the future, at the Lilliput project in Denmark, 6 inch tall engineered winging girl called Lina believes she is the only one of her kind and her only friends are the people meant to look after and studying her. She is isolated and alone until she meets a boy called Jack online and grows to fall for him even though he does not know her size. Everything changes on her 16th birthday when she is going to become part of a TV programme to find a husband out of 6 "Toms" created at a sister project. With Jack being threaten to make Lina take part, and Lilliput hiding a dark secret, will Lina get passed her feelings for Jack and get to know the 6 "Toms".

Damselfly is a good book, with a fast pace and an unusual and enjoyable idea. I was surprised by the twist at the end as I did not see it coming at all. However, I did not understand how making 6 inch people with wings meant to provide a solution to the worldwide crisis.

Lina was nice and a courageous character, but she was a bit self-centred and did not really think of others, however, this is not surprising as everything in her life has revolved around her. I would have liked to get to know Jack better I had no real idea why Lina liked him so much except that he treated her normally. Also I did not really get to know much about the "Toms" as, apart from Row and Blue, they all tended to blur together.

Damselfly is an enjoyable book and I would recommend to fans of The Selection by Kiera Cass or unusual dystopian books.
