Well, I was looking for a fluff read after My Sister's Keeper. And I found one. This was one of those books where the pros and the cons are equal, so they sort of cancel eachother out.

Pro: Interesting setting in an almost sci-fi community. I loved all the awesome futuristicness of it.
Con: Everyone fit the description of the b word. I kept getting confused as to which character I was reading about, because they were all completely interchangable: lame, backstabbing arrogant bleeps.

Pro: Value on women being educated and becoming their best.
Con: Weird writing analogies and combined words that were just stupid. Like honest-leh (that came up several times). Or: Envy hit Allie like a blast of deodorant on freshly shaved pits. Or: Skye was popped like a water bra. Or (and this ones my favorite): Relief washed over her like finally peeing after a car ride from Oregon to California. Serious-leh?

It was interesting fluff, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. But I will be reading the sequels.
