Identity Break

How far would you go to find yourself?
Imagine everything you thought you knew about yourself turned out to be a lie, and you didn’t know who was telling the truth. Imagine you possessed a secret so dangerous that, if it were exposed, it would reshape the entire world.

What would you do if that secret were your very identity?
In almost every way, Palo Vista seems like a typical California city, with office buildings, schools, and homes sprawled out across suburbia, filled with families making a life for themselves at the dawn of the new millennium.
But two seniors at Mt. MacMurray High are about to find out that nothing is as it seems…

My Review
Identity Break is a fascinating read. It definitely goes in a direction I wasn't expecting. And it also makes you think...sometime in the future, maybe 10 years from now, maybe more (or less), something like this could be possible, or at least plausible. 

We have Jason, one of our main characters, who is a very unique teenager. He's fast, he's smart, and he's got a photographic memory...or so he thinks. But Jason's life isn't quite what it seems.
 Same goes for Elyse, our other main character, who meets up with Jason. Together, they have to unravel the mystery behind who they really are.  

I wasn't sure what to expect from the story, and I will admit I was a little confused in spots. However, the story is really intriguing and kept me flipping, curious to see what other secret might be exposed next. It's kinda crazy.

There's action, sci-fi, and dystopian elements. They all mix together to bring Identity Break to life. The story is one that makes you think. It makes you wonder. It makes you realize that sometimes people with too much power can go to extreme lengths to try and "make things right."

I really enjoyed Identity Break, and I'd recommend it to fans of sci-fi/dystopian type stories. It'll definitely keep you guessing until the very end.

I give the story four stars.
