Dec 18, 2016 rated it it was amazing
I really loved the uniqueness of the story. It has a feel like S.R. Johannes' The Breathless series (which sadly is no longer available) and the movie 2012 with a whole lot of differences. Ilia and Jez were my favorites of all the characters, they were like friends that you never want to let go of. Although I did love meeting all of the characters along the way and getting to know each community. Ilia's mom really captured my heart by being a mom and helping her daughter and the outsiders. I was ...more

This was a very well-written young adult dystopian novel. Ilia is a princess in Iliad, a population controlled city. Ilia meets, Jez, a young man from the Outside area who works in Iliad, and begins to become more curious about life outside of Ilia. She starts to realize that things are not necessarily the way she has been taught all her life... I enjoyed reading their story, and will look for other novels by this author!

Simulation, by M. Black
I got this free through Library Thing's Member Giveaways.
I requested this book because it said if you like the Divergent Series or the Hunger Games, you'll like this story. I don't know about Hunger Games (never read it, nor did I see the movies), I really enjoyed the Divergent Series books, so I requested this book
It did start a bit slow for me, as Ms. Black set up her world. I think it was when I got through Chapter 4, I didn't want to put it down. The descriptions w

I really liked this YA story which gives a new perspective on how how life might be should the world go wrong. The story of friendship, resilience and a little romance for good measure makes this a good read for fans of the hunger games/ divergent series.

I got this book for free for my honest review, which I have given. Free via
