Community Reviews


I did not like this book at all. The beginning was confusing, and the characters seemed kind of fake. I couldn't manage to get interested in it at all. Overall, not a very good book, but I can see how some people might like it.


What could be worse than having a dead sister, a mother who doesn't love you (and blames you for the death of your sister), and a father who has been missing for 7 years? Violet Schoenfield is a Goodie and is in jail because she was walking in the park, at night, with a boy. In jail she meets a Baddie, Jag Barque, and realizes that she is a mind ranger. She goes to the Badlands to find out more about her "missing" father.
