Vicarious By: Paula Stokes

This book was so much different than (arguably) her most famous YA novel, Girls Against the Universe, but Paula Stokes still managed to wow me on many fronts! This book was jam packed full of adventure, no shortage of romance, but not in the "boy meets girl" way most YA novels pan out, and is super unique in content. The main characters were South Korean orphans "adopted" into the sex trade industry in LA. Their story continues until they end up in Saint Louis working for a tech company that records high adrenaline activities like cliff diving or swimming with sharks. This was a twisted, adventure of a novel and I cannot wait for the sequel, Ferocious, to come out!
