I really liked this book! Although I will have to admit I am very partial to utopian and distopian type novels so this book hit the spot for me. It really makes you think about what is most important to you. I really like the character Shay in the beginning of the book. This book is very well balanced and has a small romantic interest but I like it because it doesn't overshadow the intended plot of the book. If you are interested in a more detailed review do to Amazon.com. I hope you like it as much as I did!
