's review

it was ok

** spoiler alert ** This book made zero sense.

How am I supposed to believe that a 16 yr old girl can pass herself off as a man who is at the very least in his mid-20s?

How am I supposed to believe that she is able to sneak off in the middle of the night and A: not get caught and, B: not be so exhausted she can barely function the next day? Self-righteous anger is not actually a substitute for rest.

Beyond that though, she's just so arrogant. She literally dehumanizes the people around her by calling them cattle at least three times in the book. Frankly, half the book is just Gwynn being patronizing and full of self-pity for having to be around people she can't stand (but want to save).
