It was... okay? I think I'm getting burned out on dystopian YA lit.

That said, I will read the next one which is as close to a stamp of approval as you get from me these days.

“There's no requirement that jobs be meaningful. If there was, half the country would be unemployed.”
Max Barry, Company

Denis Johnson
“She wanted to eat my heart and be lost in the desert with what she'd done, she wanted to fall on her knees and give birth from it, she wanted to hurt me as only a child can be hurt by its mother.”
Denis Johnson, Jesus' Son

Even if you could think, even if you had an imagination, would you ever imagine its opposite, this miraculous world the Asian Taoists call the "Ten Thousand Things"? And if the darkness just got darker? And then you were dead? What would you care? How would you eve know the difference?”
Denis Johnson, Jesus' Son
