did not like it
bookshelves: dystopia, ya, urban
Read in November, 2009

Kind of a cool concept, but the execution is in sore need of an editor. Written by a teenager, and you can... tell. Sample sentence from pg. 426: "He had feared that Zyid would ask exactly that, though it wasn't unexpected."
Seriously.

The only reasons I finished this were that it was recommended by one of my teens, and I read the first half on a flight (it took me a week to get through the second half).

Interesting to see in the mind of a kid who's a little, let's say, disillusioned by school, which might be why it's getting an audience. Wanted to like it, but really.
