The Chosen One – Carol Lynch Williams
Original title: The Chosen One
I give this book 3.5 stars out of 5 possible.
Hyra is a thirteen-year-old girl who has grown up in an isolated community. To her it’s absolute normal that her father has three wives and twenty children – with two more on the way. They live very strict and what the Prophet says are the rules. No-one can know about her secret visits to the mobile library, or about her meetings with Joshua – it’s forbidden! But when when the Prophet announce that she’s going to marry her sixty-year-old uncle (her father’s brother!), she has to make her decision.
I think this book was okay to read. It’s a different story, something new for me. I like books that are something else, about something no-one has written about before. The Chosen One had an easy language and was easy written. I liked it.
