Review of Forged Purity by Louise Rachel Mahli

If they're always watching, how can you hide?

Every aspect of Adele Jones’ life is broadcasted to the public. Being an ordinary teenager is tough in a city owned by Media UK, an oppressive administration that puts everyone’s life on display for entertainment. Nobody escapes being filmed, whether you like it or not. And to retaliate, risks your very existence.

But ordinary ends for Adele when her boyfriend mysteriously vanishes; propelling her into more unwelcome fame than she’s ever experienced. How is his disappearance and this increased attention related? Things just aren’t adding up.

To get answers, Adele must find a way to uncover Media UK’s true agenda, away from the city’s watchful eyes. There is only one option. To involve herself with Jason Highbridge, a guy with dark secrets more powerful than the administration itself. The only person who can’t be filmed.

Through disobeying the rules with the most dangerous man in Waleslee, will Adele survive long enough to succeed in exposing Media UK’s real intentions?

My Review: 4 stars
I picked this up because of the blurb and the cover and was intrigued by the whole story. I found it started a little confusingly, but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. I adored Adele, even if there were times I was shaking my head at her choices. The idea of the media controlling so much of the world and what Adele does to circumvent that, it was intriguing and a well written story. I also adored Jason, his innocence and his view on life and what's happening to him. Overall, a delightful read and one I very much enjoyed.
