it was amazing
Read in November, 2011

First off, I LOVE this book. Now as to why:

- the pacing is consistently fast and quick-footed light
- the characters are fantastic for the first book and likable. It's so difficult when you get hugely annoyed by any of the main characters which happens in ALOT of YA books out there, but I hugely enjoyed June, Day, and Tess. Especially Day who breaks the mold for the badass boy (will shut my mouth now to prevent any spoilers!)
- the twists and turns that you don't expect, some of which are chuckle-worthy and some rather heartbreaking

I've read a lot of YA dystopian books lately, and I would definitively say that this is a very well-written one. What stands out is that Marie Lu does an incredible job of drawing you into every scene where you can picture so clearly everything that's happening. A really great debut, and I *cannot* wait to read what happens next!

Sophia I agree with all that you said, I actually think its my favorite book!!!

I love how day and June meet, I love that june didn't know that day was day and vise versa, I love how it's written, well let's just say I literally love everything about the book.
