I don't remember much about this one; it's fairly tropey and not much beyond that. I have to admit, it's a terrifying dystopia. On the other hand, the characters are some of the flattest I've ever come across.

The romance in particular was a fault here. Peter is a sixteen-year-old boy in a higher position of societal power than the fourteen-year-old Anna. Predictably, Anna is naive and Peter is more mature. It was honestly just kind of skeevy even to me as a fourteen-year-old? Yeahhhhh.
