Ok, so I pretty much flew through this book. It was, in many ways, very similar to The Giver. I kinda felt like certain things were stolen from it, actually. They had the whole pills for emotions, the killing of the old to get rid of them, the picking of your jobs... etc. But in many ways this was different too. I really hate that I have to wait several months to read the next in the series. If I would have known, I probably would have waited to read this. Maybe I should give this three stars, but I really did get into the story and enjoyed it quite a bit.

Not sure what I think about Cassia. She was way too predictable, but Ky and Zander totally made up for it.

Shauna Is this book appropriate for Savannah? Someone gave it to her, but I wasn't sure?

Kristin Yeah, there's nothing in there that's bad. Actually, I think the person who wrote it is LDS. She went to BYU. It's a very clean book. =)

I used to get emails when someone posted on my goodreads, but don't anymore. I just now saw this. Sorry it took so long for me to answer you.

Kristin Ok, I fixed it. Should get notifications in my email again. haha
