"Other Bodies" Book by Joel Ohman

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

"Other Bodies" was not the book I expected it to be, but it was worth the read. It's a Young Adult book by Joel Ohman, but young people and adults alike will really like this read. His futuristic dystopian Philadelphia is in some ways eerily similar to present day America. Hattie's life is looking up. She has a new job, new friends and more going for her. She is getting her life back on track. But in a world where AI isn't all that artificial and VR is more real than virtual, you sometimes learn things you didn't want to learn from the body scanning bots. Now Hattie has more big choices to make. 

Hattie is a likable character. She's caring and kind, but has a tough as nails exterior that she shows when needed. Her new friends at work are fun people and she's building a new future for herself. Even so, there is always the hint of regret that we see and feel from her. And after she makes new choices, we see the regret growing greater inside of her and threatening to overcome her. Thankfully, her new friends see bits of that regret and pain and do their best to help her work through it. 

In the end, it comes down to the question, "How far would you go to undo your greatest regret?" I couldn't get past the idea of that question and found myself staying up late to finish this book as fast as I could. Joel Ohman writes a gripping tale that draws you in and keeps you wanting to see what happens next.
