Read Want (Want, #1) Online Free - Jason Zhou survives in a divided society where the elite use their wealth to buy longer lives. The rich wear special suits that protect them from the pollution and viruses that plague the city, while those without suffer illness and early deaths. Frustrated by his city’s corruption and still grieving the loss of his mother, who died as a result of it, Zhou is determined to change things, no matter the cost.
With the help of his friends, Zhou infiltrates the lives of the wealthy in hopes of destroying the international Jin Corporation from within. Jin Corp not only manufactures the special suits the rich rely on, but they may also be manufacturing the pollution that makes them necessary.
Yet the deeper Zhou delves into this new world of excess and wealth, the more muddled his plans become. And against his better judgment, Zhou finds himself falling for Daiyu, the daughter of Jin Corp’s CEO. Can Zhou save his city without compromising who he is or destroying his own heart?

(And that doesn't mean this book isn't complete on its own in any way - just that it was that intense). It kind of felt like a futuristic dystopian heist story, yet was tec...

Its hard enough to get me into sci-fi, make it YA and I'll do my best to skip it. So why did I decide to pick up this one? Simply because my friends will not shut up about it (plus the cover is stunning) and I...
