it was amazing
bookshelves: books-i-plan-to-steal-from, young-adult

a fascinating, disturbing read. the ending is a complete shock and surprise. i was fully immersed in the story as a science fiction work and then was shocked to be jerked out of that mindset back into reality. this book was amazing just because of the astonishing creativity of the plot concept - a truly original, and surprising idea seems so rare these days, and here even though the idea is so novel it seems fully plausible as something that might actually happen today. also, the children's interactions with each other, the changing dynamics and power struggles, are really interesting.
