Hey Marit, I’ll give you 5 out of 5 birds for This Golden State! I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Marit gained my attention just with the book blurb and the story didn’t disappoint. I feel like I’ve said this about every book I’ve read in 2022, it must be on trend, but this was another slow-burn novel. The story slowly unravels and keeps you wanting to find out why these girls can’t have a normal life! They have no idea their parents real names, don’t have any technology, and literally are on the run 24/7. I really liked the main character Poppy and the highlighting of her interest in a STEM field. It was refreshing. There is some definite teen angst but never did it feel over the top or sexualized for YA which I appreciate, I mean it’s mentioned, but not the focus or depicted in depth. I loved the growth in poppy and was happy sad with the end. Overall, this book was a fun read. It gave me some Good Girls Guide to murder vibes. I’d put it on my TBR list, it drops March 1, 2022.
