Where is the free choice?
Here is a possible look at the future of our country, where free agency is lost, then fought for, everyday.
This story's society is somewhat freaky and very compartmentalized. They seem to say that community is the most important thing in your life, or should be. Most of us have no idea who we are or what we want to accomplish before we're 16, yet these young people have to decide. Can such deceptive minded leaders have such control over the people? I suppose so, looking at our own world leaders. We all need purpose and reason to live a decent and fairly happy life.
The Dauntless Manifesto from the book said: "I believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another." This is a great and strong agenda for life.
Besides looking for the lessons I found in this story, the story itself was really, really amazing and entertaining. I didn't want it to end. The author did a super job on her first novel.
