Parvin is a 17-year-old girl who knows when she will die.

Now that she has wasted most of her life, what will she do with the time she has left?

How will she be remembered?

A Time to Die is an incredible first book to Nadine Brandes’ dystopian Out of Time Series. It is fast-paced with a ton of plot twists. The main character has to go through a lot, including a fair bit of violence.

She questions her own faith, bringing her closer to Christ in a world that has rejected God. On her journey to find meaning, she is challenged by the lives and actions that others have chosen to live during their time.

This is a great teen book for those who have enjoyed The Hunger Games and Divergent. It makes you think about your life and your values. I highly recommend it.

4 out of 5 stars

Who’s your favourite person in the Bible and why?  You know, that is tricky. I have a lot. But, I always think about Esther. She was so brave and smart. Serving even when it was tough. She never thought of herself, but others. I love that!
