The Boundless Sublime

Review by Giulietta Gigliotti (Girl with a Pen)

A gripping and bizarre book based on the life of a teenage girl, Ruby, who is going through a tough time facing grief over a family member. Lured into the unique life of a boy she meets on the street, Fox, Ruby embarks on a mission to take control of her out of control life and feelings, and makes a decision she has no idea is going to change the rest of her life.

This book is a thrill-seeking story that made my heart race from the first page all the way until the last. Ruby turns her seamlessly normal life upside down when she runs away to join a ‘cult’, only to realise all too late that her life and the life of the people she loves is in danger. This story is about more than a girl struggling with grief;it is also about accepting herself and the family she has.

I enjoyed reading every word of this book. The author has gone to extreme lengths to world-build a very realistic and daunting community within the characters’ world that makes you wonder how something like this can still happen in the 21st century. Different from a lot of young adult books out and a fresh perspective on humans dealing with the grief process. This book will make chills run down your spine.
