Blog Tour: Sarina, Sweetheart by Megan Carney

Sarina, Sweetheart by Megan Carney
Publication date: March 5th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Science Fiction

Her name is Sarina Wocek. Her breath is poison. She was not born out of love.
Twenty-three years ago, government officials traced the budding epidemic of hemorrhagic fever HF186-2A in south Florida to the Wocek family and their adorable six-week-old daughter, Sarina. Her father, Gregory, admitted his role in genetically engineering a biological weapon with pride. She was taken to a lab hidden in a rural area of New Hampshire. She hasn’t left since.
Her government keepers could cure her, but they won’t. Genetically engineering a child to be a weapon of mass destruction, that’s unethical. Refining a weapon of mass destruction that someone else created? That’s just being clever.
After twenty-three years of captivity, she escapes. She crosses an ocean to put her father and the lab behind her, but it’s not enough. When she sees the first bleeding sore, she knows she didn’t leave the virus behind either.
The only way she’ll be free is by destroying every trace of the lab. She only has one advantage; she doesn’t care if she makes it out alive.


Simply put, this book has everything. It's definitely one that would keep you on the edge of your seat or hanging by the edge of your bed just to keep reading on. But what truly struck me out of it all is Sarina. Even though she has been kept in the laboratory for so long, she is still in every way, human. She learned how to adapt outside, to trust people even when all her life, she was treated as a mere test subject, or so it seemed to her.

Sarina, Sweetheart brings life to more than just the suspense, the action and the threats to Sarina's life. The book showed that there would always be something that makes a person to keep on moving despite the circumstances: hope.
