NOTE: I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. This review is my honest opinion of the book.
"No one inside the snow globe knows that Morozoko Industries is controlling their weather, testing them to form a stronger race that can survive the fall out from the bombs being dropped in the outside world—all they know is that they must survive the harsh Winter that lasts a month and use the few days of Spring, Summer, and Fall to gather enough supplies to survive.
When the seasons start shifting, Genesis and her boyfriend, Jack, know something has gone wrong. As their team begins to find technology that they don’t have access to inside their snow globe of a world, it looks more and more like one of their own is working against them.
Genesis soon discovers Morozoko Industries is to blame, but when a foreign enemy tries to destroy their weather program to make sure their destructive life-altering bombs succeed in destroying the outside world, their only chance is to shut down the machine that is spinning out of control and save the lives of everyone inside the bunker--at any cost."
This is something of a light dystopian/science fiction novel written in a simple style that young teenagers might find appealing. The concept was interesting enough, but the execution fell a bit flat. There were far too many mild romance scenes inserted randomly throughout that detracted from the story. There were also too many unanswere questions or missed opportunities for extended world building. The characters also have done with a bit more personality and conflict - especially the group of secondary characters. They came across as docile sheep, following whatever instructions are given without question and not even twitching when they find out their world wasn't what they thought it was. The writing of the first half of the novel was a bit stilted, almost like a novice writer. The second half picked up pace and intensity. This wasn't a bad book, but it could have been better.
