17-year-old Sophie lies on her deathbed in California, awaiting the inevitable loss of her battle with cancer…
17-year-old Declan stares down two armed thugs in a back alley in Galway, Ireland…
17-year-old Anat attempts to traverse a booby-trapped tunnel between Israel and Egypt…
 All three strangers should have died at the exact same moment, thousands of miles apart. Instead, they awaken together in an abandoned hospital—only to discover that they’re not alone. Three other teens from different places on the globe are trapped with them. Somebody or something seems to be pulling the strings. With their individual clocks ticking, they must band together if they’re to have any hope of surviving. 
 Soon they discover that they've been trapped in a future that isn't of their making: a deadly, desolate world at once entirely familiar and utterly strange. Each teen harbors a secret, but only one holds the key that could get them home. As the truth comes to light through the eyes of Sophie, Declan, and Anat, the reader is taken on a dark and unforgettable journey into the hearts of teens who must decide what to do with a second chance at life.

 My POV.

This is a review really hard to do, because Strangelets is one of those books that you liked yet you don't know how to explain why. And worst, you can't say openly the things you probably would, because it could spoil it for everyone.

The plot is very interesting, as you read in the summary. 3 strangers that were about to die just wake up in a very different world. A dangerous one. It is above all levels of creepy. Once you are into the story there is nothing that can put you back.

You like creepy things? Yes? Then you'll love Strangelets.
You like Sc/fic? Yes? Then, you'll like Strangelets.
You like mystery? Yes? Then, you'll definetely like Strangelets.

My only problem while reading this books is that the beginning was a bit confusing, I wasn't getting the idea, it took me a little time to really understand and like the next chapters.
Also, I just CAN'T handle insta-love, and in a way Strangelets has an insta-love story. Yes, I loved Sophie and Declan's relationship, I really did (plus, I loved Declan's name, that was my favorite thing ever!), but still, I think the time for them to get involved in a love story was just too fast.

The characters were really okay, I feel them in the way I love to feel the emotions of the person behind the characters. My very favorite was Anat, she was a really kick-ass. And I really loved how all of them get to know each other despite they are from different parts of the world.

The dystopian world where they are awoke is really frightening. Terrible, and once again, creepy. 
I think you must give this book a chance! This is a very unique histoy, and you will be blown away with those fantastic moments of action.
