What is the book about:
Prescription drugs are so common in the future they’re called supplements, and dispensed at meals like side dishes. Just like everyone else, Luna takes pills to curb her appetite, increase her memory, focus her concentration, improve her mood, even suppress her sex drive.
By her sophomore year in college, however, she’s beginning to wonder what life is like outside this drug-induced state. The perfect opportunity to break out of the mire comes when she sees a picture of a medallion from the 5th century. She’s not sure where she’s seen it, but she hopes once her mind is clear, she will find the artifact.
When she stops taking supplements, she discovers food tastes delicious, her friend Sal is suddenly sexy, and the search for the lost medallion turns into a real adventure.
Hopefully, all her new habits don't get her killed

My thoughts on the book:
I was given an Ebook copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book is definitely very different from what I'm used to reading in a good way. I gave this book 4.5 stars out of 5 because I really enjoyed it, it just took me a while to get into the story. 
In this book taking prescribed drugs which they call supplements is a very common thing they serve them during lunch like a side dish. The pills help with memory, focus, weight (this one really caught my attention lol) and even to suppress feelings for the opposite sex. But when our main character Luna discovers an ancient medallion she is sure she has seen before, she decides that she's tired of being drugged up she stops drinking her pills. It is then that she starts to realize that food is delicious and starts to feel a very powerful attraction to her best friend Sal. 
I really enjoyed this book. I really liked the characters and the story. This book has humor, adventure, just the right amount of romance, and even action. I really do recommend you read this book it's a fast read and very enjoyable.
