"Where women are created for the pleasure of men, beauty is the first duty of every girl. In Louise O'Neill's world of Only Every Yours women are no longer born naturally, girls (called "eves") are raised in Schools and trained in the arts of pleasing men until they come of age. Freida and Isabel are best friends. Now, aged sixteen and in their final year, they expect to be selected as companions--wives to powerful men. All they have to do is ensure they stay in the top ten beautiful girls in their year. The alternatives--life as a concubine, or a chastity (teaching endless generations of girls)--are too horrible to contemplate. But as the intensity of final year takes hold, the pressure to be perfect mounts. Isabel starts to self-destruct, putting her beauty--her only asset--in peril. And then into this sealed female environment, the boys arrive, eager to choose a bride. Freida must fight for her future--even if it means betraying the only friend, the only love, she has ever known"--Amazon.com.… (més)

If this book was in the Horror section I wouldn't be surprised. Such a terrifying story and so similar to our society that I can't help but think that the dystopian future in the book could happen in real life (and in some ways it already is).
Only Ever Yours is a cautionary tale about how beauty is perceived. If a girl isn't beautiful she isn't worth anything and consequently, the lengths these girls go to preserve their looks are horrific. If you're sensitive to subjects like eating disorders, bullying or sexual assault or have low self-esteem, you might want to steer clear of this book.
isabel's big secret at the end was shocking and I would never have guessed such a terrible thing.
A hard but important book. ( )

This is a world where the females have to be genetically engineered a true female has not been born naturally for years, they are called Eves. Brought up in strict
conditions taught to watch what the wear how they act, look and their weight. They are all jocking for the same thing the most eligible boys to pick them as companions. It was an interesting story I was a bit disappointed by the end. While reading this I felt like I was on the edge of a cliff… very high strung feeling but at the end I felt like I was told to turn around and go back the way I came. Which was a little bit of a let down, but I really liked the writing style and will read other books by this author.
