Proxy & Guardian by Alex London | Book Review + Discussion & Alex London’s Book Signing Event PH

Plot in a Nutshell (PROXY):
Knox was born into one of the City’s wealthiest families. A Patron, he has everything a boy could possibly want—the latest tech, the coolest clothes, and a Proxy to take all his punishments. When Knox breaks a vase, Syd is beaten. When Knox plays a practical joke, Syd is forced to haul rocks. And when Knox crashes a car, killing one of his friends, Syd is branded and sentenced to death.

Syd is a Proxy. His life is not his own.

Then again, neither is Knox’s. Knox and Syd have more in common than either would guess. So when Knox and Syd realize that the only way to beat the system is to save each other, they flee. Yet Knox’s father is no ordinary Patron, and Syd is no ordinary Proxy. The ensuing cross-country chase will uncover a secret society of rebels, test both boys’ resolve, and shine a blinding light onto a world of those who owe and those who pay. Some debts, it turns out, cannot be repaid.

Synopsis from Goodreads

Thoughts in General:

You all probably know by now that I am not the biggest fan of dystopian novels and I was really hesitant in picking up the Proxy duology/trilogy. Ever since I found out that Alex London, the author, is coming down the islands of the Philippines this August 30th, I just decided to take a huge leap of faith. Man, I am really happy that I did because it was so good. It was the a good choice for a readathon because I just coasted through it. The characters were compelling, the world was really dark and gritty and the plot was thick. Even though I had moments when I didn’t connect with the characters, I still enjoyed the book’s pacing and themes.
