Madison Lawson does an incredible job of keeping the reader on the edge of their seat in The Registration, a dystopian world where everyone has one legal murder and Lynell Mize has just heard a stranger register her. I had the privilege and pleasure of reading The Registration early and I was so swept up I read it in two days. Lawson balances exploration of ethical dilemmas, delivering well-placed details about the dystopian world of The Registration, all while managing the pacing of Lynell Mize trying to outrun her registration.
