Keystone by Katie Delahanty - A Review

Hello everyone!!

Today we are talking about Keystone by Katie Delahanty that came out on January 7th by Entangled Teen. This is a young adult science fiction dystopian book with a very unique concept that is very apt for our days. In this not so distant future social media is above everything and in a way controls everything.

Keystone is full of plot twists and secrets until the very end and that made it even more enjoyable for me. Did I mention there is also a heist?

It's about a future dystopian world where everyone is graded on the Social Stock exchange market and if you don't rank high enough or you are Unrankable life is too difficult for you. This is the life of the Influencers and our protagonist Ella is one of them, at least at the beginning...
On the other hand we have the Disconnects who live without all this technology and social media madness. There is also Keystone, a school that teaches you how to be a thief for everything analog and original so that history cannot be changed by those in power.

There are a lot of beautiful characters in the story and I enjoyed the connection between our two main characters, Ella and Garrett. I liked how their secrets unraveled as the story progresses. 

The book ends in a cliff-hanger so I am assuming that it's going to be a series and I am very excited about it. At this moment the only thing I can find online is just a title , Disconnect, and a publication date for October 2020.

If you like dystopian books which feature heists you will love this book.

Rating: 4 Stars

Synopsis from GoodReads:
When Ella Karman debuts on the Social Stock Exchange, she finds out life as a high-profile "Influencer" isn't what she expected. Everyone around her is consumed by their rankings, in creating the smoke and mirrors that make them the envy of the world.
But then Ella’s best friend betrays her, her rankings tank, and she loses—everything.
Leaving her old life behind, she joins Keystone, a secret school for thieves, where students are being trained to steal everything analog and original because something—or someone—is changing history to suit their needs.
Partnered with the annoyingly hot—and utterly impossible—Garrett Alexander, who has plenty of his own secrets, Ella is forced to return to the Influencer world, while unraveling a conspiracy that began decades ago.
One wrong move and she could lose everything—again. 

I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley and the publisher  in exchange for an honest review

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
