4.5 stars Owen is enjoying his time at summer camp until he drowns. But he wakes up (technicians--in his mind or real--moniter and help regulate his body functions) and tries to figure out why he now is able to swim underwater with the aid of gills. In his dystopian world, he lives in one of the few places where humans still survive. Owen realizes that things are just not what they are portrayed to be at the camp at about the same time he figures out there are others like him.

Lots of action and suspense. Owen's romance with Lily is sweet and typical of teens, and as a bonus, it's important to the story. I was initially a bit put off by the fantasy-like Atlantean area under water but it quickly made sense. The story is believeable in that I can see our world, without a drastic change in direction, heading this way. I highly recommend this book and look forward with great anticipation to the next in the series.
