First in a trilogy. Very obvious with the loose threads, even though it was not really a cliff-hanger ending.

Not too many 'new' dystopian ideas in this book, but they are presented in a different way. I liked the refacing of old ideas for a new and younger generation. Also, this book it tilted more for the girls.

At first I was tired of the 'love triangle' which seems to be the go to theme for all young adult girly books right now. However, the love triangle is more than that. The two boys are more than boys. They are symbols of the choices our main character has, and in that light, the triangle is more palitable.
