Inside Out (Insiders #1)
Keep Your Head Down.
Don't Get Noticed.
I'm Trella. I'm a scrub. A nobody. One of thousands who work the lower levels, keeping Inside clean for the Uppers. I've got one friend, do my job and try to avoid the Pop Cops. So what if I occasionally use the pipes to sneak around the Upper levels? The only neck at risk is my own…until I accidentally start a rebellion and be...more

Inside is an intriguing place. Divided into four levels, it is the home of the uppers and lowers, also called scrubs, and a wonder of modern technology. Especially the scrubs suffer from shortage of space and the constant presence of the Pop Cops, who ensure that everything runs smoothly and according to the Controller’s orders.

I really loved this book! Everyone who enjoys sci-fi or dystopian will definitly enjoy this book too. Read it! :D
Jeg tror dette må være noen av de mest spennende bøkene jeg har lest. Det var slik at jeg hadde ly...more
I'm not going to say much, because it's not really a book you can review in detail without giving much away.
Maria Snyder creates an intricate world which is so easy to get caught up in. I must admit, it confused the heck out of me at first and on several occasions I considered setting the book aside, but I'm so glad I didn't. I needed to do a few 'read-then-re-read's of sentences to make sure what I was reading made sense, but after you catch o...more
Because she doesn’t connect.
But the chance to find Gateway. The chance to escape the Inside.
THAT is a challenge Trella can’t turn down.
A challenge that matters to everyone on the Inside. Enough for people to risk their lives. The workers in the...more
In this world where everyone lives "inside", the society is split between Uppers (living a rather...more
Trella, a scrub and Queen of the Pipes, has agreed to humor her only friend another time and listen to a new prophet babble on about Gateway in hopes that she can prevent Cogon from getting into trouble. Only this time the prophet doesn't seem to be a Pop Cop ploy or completely delusional man. The prophet asks Trella to break rules restricting the scrubs to the lower levels and steal back important computer files, files that possibly pro...more
I don’t often get fangirly in my reviews, but OMG does this book make m...more
Because of all of the amazing dystopian books that are available, this one needed to be amazing to really stand out in such a large market. And while I enjoyed it, it kind of fell flat. The premise was good and ove...more
Okay, so I first heard that this book was not that good. When that happens, I tend to have less expectations or expect it to be boring at least. So maybe its because I was expecting it to be bad, or maybe because I just love anything dystopian, but I really, really enjoyed this book. I've been thinking for a while how to put my thoughts into words, because I feel I liked all the aspects except the romance part. And that never happens! Or shouldn't happen at least. I will try to explain this as b...more
Trella, otherwise known as the Queen of the Pipes, is a scrub who lives in the lower levels. It's her job to clean the pipes and ensure Inside stays clean and rust-free. She deliberate...more
Trella's a teenager and her job is to clean the pipes in the walls. And where she basically keeps to herself and explores the Insides without the Uppers knowing. She's a loner and perfectly content with keeping to herself a...more
There is always a problem when it comes to science fiction books, particularly in the YA genre. I find something about it that I don't fully agree on/ believe- that it ruins my whole experience. I found 'Inside Out' for the most part great; the setting, plot etc. was well done, but, I couldn't help but feel disconnected from it in some way. That doesn't mean to say that it was badly wr...more
I like all the characters, but it is only like. I never really connected to Trella in particular and I can't really say why, thoug...more
Trella’s job is to clean the heating and air ducts, earning her nickname “The Queen of the Pipes.” She has a hard time relating to the other scrubs because she thinks of them as mindless sheep that aren’t worth her time or concern. She’s even take...more
INSIDE OUT is the perfect example (at least for me anyway) of why you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. This cover didn’t do anything for me, in fact I thought the cover model looked like Miley Cyrus which really didn’t do anything for me. Once again my shallowness almost had me missing out on an excellent book.
In a sentence, INSIDE OUT is 1984 meets The Hunger Games. And if you’ve been living under a rock somewhere and haven’t read The Hu...more

It was a very interesting book and it took time to get use to their world and to understand how it works. But it was well worth it. While reading, the book reminded me a little of The People of Sparks by Jea...more
Trella only has one friend, Cogon, and when he drags her to meet, yet another, Prophet spouting nonsense about the Gateway to the Outside, she goes...more
The Pop Cops patrol the lower floors, preaching the upper floors dominance over the lower floors and controlling the scrubs (what the people of the lower floors are called).
When a prophet starts preaching that he knows where to...more
