Divided Worlds Series by Imran Siddiq
Genre: YA Sci-Fi
Blurb for book 1 Disconnect:
Zachary, a 16-year old Underworlder digs in waste to find anything worth bartering. That is the rule of scavenging.
When he discovers footage of an Overworld girl, Rosa, he’s intrigued by her sorrow and breaks the rule.
That decision changes his life, and he will suffer for it.
Zachary must overcome worthlessness, prejudice, and not let a twisted lie devour the new reason that he survives; Rosa.
In space, love had boundaries.
5 of 5 Disconnect
Disconnect is a great book. I have to say that this is not my normal reading genre but I decided to step out the box and read it because I loved the cover. I am so glad I decided to think out side the box and read this because it had some very intriguing ideas and two worlds that collided that made things complicated. I love when authors can pull of the creating two worlds and having two sets of rules and then meshing them slowly into one another. It is a breath of fresh air for a reader to experience that.
Zachary is not your average 16 year old. Zachary lives in the underworld where he receives everything from the overworld. Everything from food to the air that he breaths comes from the Overworld where the rich and elite live. One day he sees a girl Rosa who is in the Overworld looking sad and he just has to find out why. Not realizing what it is he wants Zachary takes a chance and talks to Rosa. As they build this friendship that should not be the two of them start to fall for each other. But as Zachary knows all to well he can't have a relationship with her because she is off limits. The Underworld do not date the Overworld. It is not allowed be the two classes shall never merge together.
