Read in July, 2012

ARC copy received via Net Galley. I rarely give a five star but felt it necessary this time. I loved this story and know it is going to be wildly popular with the teen readers. There are several themes that can be discussed making this an excellent addition to Lit Discussions. Sci Fi classes will want to have several copies of this once the book becomes available. Much of what I liked was the parallel between the Beta's life and a slave's life. The faulty thinking, that a person can be owned by another and be property, is just one of the many themes brought forth in this novel. I loved Cohn's character in GINGERBREAD, and I loved this character just as much. Too bad I have to wait for the next book in the series.
