Loved this book! I loved the psychological journey the main character makes as her subconscious gradually gives herself permission to consider, admit, and then embrace her misgivings about the society she lives in. I also like how it never fully reso...more

Like many of you, I've been reading a lot of young-adult dystopian fiction lately. Of all these books, the world of The Line is the most similar to our own, yet the least believable. The book just doesn't ring true. In a couple of spots I found mysel...more

Loved it. Best part for me was seeing how her beliefs and allegiances were not based on rational evaluation of right and wrong, but just accepting what she was exposed to mixed with a sense of survival. I think it applies to the way we think and what...more

This was a very emotional book. It leaves you feeling both hopeful and helpless; I'm just not sure what to take away from it. I do recommend the book. You get an authentic portrayal of the effects of intolerance, told from a kids-eye view that some p...more

Although I didn't always agree with the author's conclusions, I loved this book. The five-star score is a rating of the book, not XP itself. The book does a wonderful job of tieing practices back to principles and values. XP practices and the reasoni...more

Brush your teeth before you go to bed. Oooooh! Profound!
