-- My Thoughts --
Clarke and Bellamy are in search of Bellamy's sister, through the wilderness. And Wells is in charge of keeping that earth girl hostage, but he is drawn to her and her mysterious past. Glass is back on the ship, while all the Oxygen supplies are dwindling and no one knows what to do.
This book does not suffer from the second-book-syndrome that most YA series suffer from nowadays. The second book is usually a disappointment, lacking in so many levels But I am happy to say that Day 21 was much better than the first book in the series.
First, there is still not a lot of action going on. But there is more than the first book. There's suspense and danger and things at stake. I loved that. It gave the story a whole survival look. Then, there are the characters. We see them develop much more and we notice the changes they have gone through individually.
Although some of the characters still get on my nerves, but I guess that's what makes them unique. The romance does not take the center stage but it's definitely there. There's so much sizzling chemistry in this book, it had hot and steamy moments that melted my heart. I loved them.
My favorite character is still Glass, because she has this amazing kindness and loyalty, it's beautiful. She is such a good person, the kind of person we dream of being one day. The kind who puts everyone before herself. And since she is on the ship, her story is very different from the others and it's much more interesting to read.
I LOVED the ending. Even though it was a bit sad, it was still intriguing and full of possibilities. I am pretty sure that the third book will be just as amazing. There is still so much more to explore!
