it was amazing
bookshelves: young-adult-lit, fiction, coming-of-age, distopia

** spoiler alert ** I read this in high school and am amazed when I find people who haven't read this story. It is a wonderful study of human nature. think this book has one of the most disturbing death scenes that I read as a young adult. I still have a very clear picture of Piggy on the rocks. This is a book that has stuck in my mind for a very long time. It is one that every young person should read and then reread later in life.

Judy Read it in college and parts of it never left me.
Reread it recently and reacted differently but still found it a book perfect for study in many levels.
I agree with Amy. A four star.
