The Blending Time is a science fiction book that takes place in the future. In the year 2069, Jaym, Reya, and D’Shay are forced (along with all of the others chosen to be blenders) to reproduce with Africans because of the harmful diseases in Africa. The three teens meet each other on the trip to Africa, and become friends. After the trip, everyone goes to their new family in Africa. Each of the three teens face their own problems in Africa, but there are also people who try to kill all of the blenders. Will the three teens meet again in safety, or will they die?
I did not enjoy this book much. It was interesting at some points, but a little boring at others. The characters were very diverse, but none of them were that entertaining. The worst part of the book was the ending. Unlike books that had an open-ended ending, it seemed like the plot just paused in The Blending Time. I would not recommend this book to everybody, but if you are interested in this book, you should be at least 12 years old (there are some inappropriate words).
