What a book.. I could not put it down throughout! 5 stars for how well written and captivating it was. I could not recommend this any more!!

Loved it. Strong, courageous but 'real' central character. Didn't try to make Santee do things that were beyond a teenagers capabilities. Also loved the fact that the 'love story' wasn't unrealistic or over the top.

Could not put this book down. Loved Santee and her voice and courage. This book was a page turner for me and even got teary at the end. Can't wait for the next one - fingers crossed it comes out soon! Such a great debut novel from this new Australian voice in YA fiction. Read it.

Absolutely loved this novel by Katy Warner. I love the way she writes and can not wait for the sequel. Managed to read the whole novel within a couple of days (and I have two small children so this is no mean feat!)
Looking forward to reading more by this author.

This was disappointing. It had the barest bones of world building, the romance lacked chemistry, the main character felt passive, things happened to her rather than the other way around. The ending was useless. It gets two stars because there were a few scenes that stood out to me and were tense and well-written.

In this Young Adult dystopian fiction we meet Santee, a 16 year old who apparently lives on the wrong side of town. She lives in a city, not unlike our own yet in this city there is curfew, there are rules and a leader who is ruthless to defeat the 'Threats' that inhabit this side.

Being a 16 year old the last thing Santee wants to do is follow rules so of course one rule is broken - a long car ride out of town and this turns out to be something that will change her life forever.

Two regions, a girl trapped on the wrong side of a wall trying to get to her family on the other side. What will she have to do to get there?

I liked the idea of the story but was surprised that it didn’t really grab my attention as much as I thought it would. This book had a slower pace than I expected so although I read it quickly I found it and wasn’t as exciting or thrilling for me as other YA books with a similar style. Maybe this is not ‘that’ type of book but it did give that impression in

An amazing read. Impossible to put down once started. I can’t wait to see the next installment from this author. Bravo!

A compelling story that focuses on the themes of hope, community, and friendship. It had aspects of the real world infused into it, such as politics and power.

The dystopian world building for me fell a little flat for me, and the plot kind of gave me a mish-mash of Divergent and The Hunger Games vibes. However, the main characters Santee and Z were engaging enough.

The start of the book was a little slow, with a lot of focus on the teen romance, however, it really picked up the pace towards the
Dystopian disquiet.

Recommends it for: readers who like stories about standing up for freedom
16 yr. old Santee resides in the "bad" side of the city. Magnus Varick, a dictator, attempts to stop the city's threats by first enforcing Curfew, then a wall. A wall that divided the 2 regions and separated Santee from her family. Against her will, she and Z conform with the ludicrous laws that have become inaugurated. Numerous innocent individuals are murdered, countless homeless.
Ms. Katy Warner's debut YA Novel is filled with hidden symbolism, serving as a reminder of a world that could

I have no idea what that book was aiming to achieve, but I'm pretty sure that it didn't achieve it.

My main issue was that the protagonist (Santee) was completely irrelevant to the plot for the first 85+%. and even when she became relevant she was just kind of useless. I guess that my unimpressed response could be attributed to the vast array of fierce female characters that are predominantly displayed in modern YA literature. I know that of course, not all characters are ready to assume the

I bloody loved this book. There is a special place in my heart for YA, and I loved that this didn't play the same game as the Hunger Games, Insurgent etc crowd by making Santee 'special' and the only one who can change the world /save the city etc. It's real. Santee is a flawed teenager who doesn't have the power to change much, and that hopelessness so beautifully mirrors how I feel in today's world.

I think the best review I can give for this is that my husband loved it. I have not seen that

This book grabbed me from the start. It demonstrates similarities to atrocities people faced when the Berlin wall was constructed and it really gives you a sense of the importance of standing up for what you believe in. The end had me on the edge of my seat. Waiting for the sequel!
