Reviews & Summaries
What sets this dystopian YA novel apart from the others is that it really focuses on survival. The community is not perfect, and has obvious flaws, which is a nice change from all of the perfect dystopian novels out there. The world-building technique shown by the author is great. She sets her rules, and follows them all through-out the novel. However, the pacing of the action in this novel is very strange. The beginning was full of action, and read very well. The middle got bogged down and read so slowly, I was tempted to stop reading it. It seemed that the author had to sacrifice technique in order to get the action moving again at the end. Males will be able to enjoy this dystopian novel because it has a lot of fighting in it, and mutants as opposed to “feelings” and love being the main problem.
