Crewel by Gennifer Albin

Adelice can embroider the very fabric of life and because of this talent she is forced to work as a Spinster for Manipulation Services, which separates Adelice from her family. Adelice loses her freedom as she must work the looms that dictate how people live their lives. She discovers secrets and that her world is built on lies. She sets out to find truths that could get her killed, along with the boy she falls for.

This dystopian novel has a similar plot to most other dystopian stories. There is an oppressive world, a girl with a special talent, a revolution in the making, and a love triangle. What makes this story stand out from others is the world created by the author. There is a lot of depth to how the world functions, however I would have preferred more depth in the character development. I wish Adelice was more unique and the plot more unpredictable. However, the novel ends with a promise of more twists to come which will keep readers intrigued.
