I have real issues with the universe that DeStefano created, but the character of Jenna alone took this from a 2 to a 3 star.

31.0% "Liking this book a little better now, but I'm still not seeing the part of this book that is supposed to make me read it in one sitting, buy the sequel instantly and then start comparing it to the Hunger Games. A lot about this book makes me really uncomfortable. The amount of rape that is apparently just peachy with society... I just kind of squick at it."

63.0% "It took about 150 pages for me to really get into this book. It's a nasty little theme in YA recently that every girl MUST have two boys deeply, madly, crazy in love with her. This is different, and it's my favorite thing about this book. Linden and Gabriel are such different characters and (as it should be) their relationships with Rhine are very different as well. Also, the Housemaster is terrifying."
