really liked it

My first thought when reading this book was that it was strikingly similar to the Matched books - totalitarian government, forbidden romance, etc. The details and characters are, of course, different and so I thought this was a good, quick and fun read too. Warning: this book contains some PG-13 language which is really irritating to me knowing that the book was written primarily for a young adult audience. Do teenage characters need to use gutter language to be believeable? Personally I think it detracts from the characters and makes them seem stereotypical instead of strong like the author probably intended - just my opinion.
