it was ok

I keep reading these teen dystpoias because my students are clamoring for them after reading The Hunger Games trilogy, and I keep hoping to find the next great series for them. This isn't it. This one was one long slog to get through. The only reason I give it two stars instead of one is because I feel like Johnson had good intentions. I think she had this world well-built in her head, but she wasn't able to translate that onto the page. There were so many loose ends and plot lines that made no sense. And, unfortunately, I didn't even really care for Vi, the main character. I won't be readily suggesting this one to any of my students.
