Holy smokes.

This book is disturbing. I mean that in a good way though. This book bothered me because the author doesn't use some sort of virus that turns everybody into zombies or some other strange fantasy based plot line to build her world. Instead, she uses a government who is fighting against a failing social system (crime, justice, economy, etc) and that government takes drastic action. It was mind blowing reading such a scenario and how completely realistic something like this could be in the future. Horrifying, scary, and a completely emotional read.

I loved Millie. I loved everything about her character. She wasn't whiny, she was just a kid who didn't know what she was in for. I adored Reed and Jude. Millie's story is heart wrenching but she shows such strength. She is everything you want in a female character and more.

I highly recommend this book.
