I loved this book but I felt that there were several unnecessary plot twists and that took away from the book.
Rory Vaughn lives in a world of technology. A world where there are apps that make decisions for you. A world where intuition is something to be frowned upon and rationality means letting devices make all the choices for you.
Rory isn’t a huge fan of technology and sees no reason to use an app to make all of her decisions. In addition, the Doubt (i.e., intuition) starts speaking to Rory as soon as she gets into a prestigious college. Once there, Rory find out that she is a genius and one of the smartest kids the school has seen in decades.
However, in class, Rory gets good grades because she listens to the Doubt instead of ignoring it. This makes one of her teachers suspicious and eager to get Rory expelled because a person isn’t supposed to heed the Doubt.
Moreover, Rory realizes that there’s something that’s not quite right about her school. People are becoming overly dependent on technology and her best friend turns out to be a spy working for an evil teacher. Then Rory learns something that may endanger her life and the lives of others.
Will she survive?
