Artichoke Hearts by Sita Brahmachari

The front cover
Mira is a twelve year old girl living in North London. She has a mad family, a best friend and her Grandmother. But Mira's Gran is going to die. When she asks Mira to help her paint her coffin, Mira agrees. Artichoke hearts tells Mira's story of starting a new school, life, love and loss. 

This book is one of the best I have read in a very long time. It is beautifully written and captures Mira's life incredibly well. I really loved this book, it made me cry and laugh. I really, really recommend Artichoke Hearts, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did

Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien

The front cover 
Gaia Stone is a 16 year old girl living in the poor town outside the wall of the privileged Enclave. The outside must deliver a quota of babies each month to the Enclave, who will be raised inside the wall in luxury. But when Gaia's parents are arrested for hiding a code about the babies let into the Enclave she realises the perfect society isn't as perfect as it appears. She must venture into the Enclave to find her parents, and must solve the mystery of the code, before it's too late.

I have been enjoying dystopian novels for a while, and since the enormously popular Hunger Games the genre has exploded with new stories. I really enjoyed this book, it was different to other dystopian novels, which I found quite refreshing. It was well written and enthralling, I barely could stop reading! I am looking forward to getting the next book in the series which I am hoping will be as good as the first.
