This is one of my absolute favorite books. Once you start reading you can never put it down. It pulls you through from the beginning and never lets you go. It will tear through your heart at times, but I highly recommend it!

Truthfully, I enjoyed this book more than Vitro. It is written from one point of view, and has many plot twists and suspenseful parts. The writer has definitely put a lot of clever parts linking to each other. Each sentence makes you want to read more, and not drop the book. Book is also full of description and some romance. Each teenager has a totally different personality, from one another, which makes the story even more interesting.

I've enjoyed Khoury's other books, but I really couldn't get into this one. I was uninterested in the story and even less interested in the characters. They all felt like generic archetypes. I was mostly just trying to get through this book and overall didn't enjoy it, sadly. Not her strongest work.

MY THOUGHTS  I've read and loved all of Jessica Khoury's other books, but this one has to be my favorite so far. I went into this book without knowing anything about it, besides the setting and the fact that it has something to do with experiments (the latter was just a guess, it is a Corpus book after all). I love going through books knowing little to nothing about it. I ended up really enjoying this book and constantly turning the pages to know more! This book is another companion book, part of the Corpus series, though the books can be read out of order and by themselves yet still make sense. Kalahari follow Sarah who lives in the Kalahari desert with her dad. In order to make more money, they agree to let five teenagers join them for an educational safari. When her dad goes after some poachers and doesn't return, she fears the worst (especially since her mom died recently after a similar event). She goes after to find her dad, with the five teenagers in tow. She has to find her dad, while keeping her tag-a-longs alive, all the while strangers keep coming after her, along with the discovery of odd, silver animals and a deadly disease. First of all, this book is incredibly action-packed. Sarah's dad disappears very quickly in the book and from then on it's event after event after event. This book is never slow-paced and it absolutely works with the book! The entire idea behind this book is also really unique and creative, yet makes scientific sense. Sure, silver animals don't sound very plausible, but it is explained so brilliantly that it makes perfect sense. (By the way, please tell me I'm not the only one who was reminded of that one Scooby-Doo episode where all the safari animals turned a radioactive green? Anyone?) The characters were also very great. I know I say this a lot in my reviews, but Sarah is a very strong main character. She is very resourceful, thanks to practically living off the land, and saves the other's lives many times over. The other characters do grow as the book progresses. A few of the teenagers are kind of annoying in the beginning. They blame Sarah for what is going on and they complain about what's happening, but they begin to lose these feelings when they realize how serious the situation is. There is a very tiny romance in this book. It was one I was expecting. Once this guy walked out of the plane, my first though was "I bet this is the love interest." As I said though, the romance was very small and didn't distract from the plot at all. I actually thought it was really nice. IN CONCLUSION  Overall, this book was very fact-paced and action-packed! The plot behind this whole book is very fascinating and I thought it was done very well. I do recommend this book, along with any of Jessica Khoury's other books! If you are a fan of fast-based books with a mystery and science, you will very likely enjoy this book.
