Point B: Review

Point B is ultimately about the relationship between a lower-class teenage boarding school student and a oligarch's daughter who is briefly her roommate. Set in a world in which instant teleportation is possible almost anywhere in the world, the protagonist has to navigate school and love, while trying to solve who murdered her sister by teleporting to her room one night.

Full of twists and turns, the novel neatly integrates the near-future technology into its plot. The protagonist is clever and resourceful, and gets help from a narrow circle of trusted friends. The true tension is whether the protagonist and her wealthy love interest can ever bridge the economic gap and the barriers placed between them.

My overall opinion of Point B is positive. The technology is explained with plenty of believable details. And the character interactions are detailed and involving.
