I found Wither, the first of a trilogy, to be incredibly eerie. It takes place in the not so far future, when the human genes have been so tampered with that women only live to be 20 and men 25 years old. To keep the human race from dying out girls are taken and sold into polygamist marriages, often against there will. This is what happens to the main character of this book Rhine. She is given to a rich man with 2 other girls, Jenna and Cecily. Slowly the three sister wives begin to form a bond, but all the while Rhine is planning to escape. Her plan comes to an abrupt halt when she meets Gabriel, a servant on her floor. All of a sudden Rhine is questioning everything she has ever known, and wondering if life is worth living if you leave everyone you love behind. I would recommend this book to everyone, I really loved it. It makes you wonder what you would do with your life if you knew you had so little time to live.
