Consider by Kristy Acevedo

Consider is the first YA dystopian book in the Holo series. Alexandra (Alex) Lucas has an anxiety disorder. With panic attacks nearly everyday, the last thing she needs is more to worry about. While Alex is on a train with her boyfriend, Dominick, the train stops because of a hologram and vertex. 500 of them open around the world, telling everyone on Earth that they are from the year 2359 in an alternate dimension. They say that a comet is on a collision course with Earth, and their only hope is to step into a vertex to an alternate dimension.

Right when the book starts, there is instant action with the holograms. I was a little surprised, since most books build up to an event like that, but I liked it. It was pretty much like that the whole book with nonstop events and action.

Her anxiety was very detailed. Alex was very descriptive with the symptoms and emotions that go along with her panic attacks. The amount of detail describing her thoughts and feelings were so realistic and persuasive.

The holograms allowed people to ask them questions about their dimension. At the start of every chapter, there would be a question and answer that relates to the concept of the chapter you are about to read. That was cool, and it put things in perspective while providing more information.

Contribute is the second book in the Holo series and comes out on January 1, 2017. I can't wait to read it! I'm glad I purchased Consider.
