I really wanted to like this one so much, because Tu Books is such a great thing, and the book sounded cool in itself. But it was harder to like than it should have been because of the complete predictability of some of the story lines (as in Kayla says something in the first few pages that lets you know exactly where Wrongness will be found), and the needless breaking into the *three* perspective characters. As well as that problem, I didn't buy the central romance at all. Also, the utterly praiseworthy line about everyone being equal was somewhat undercut by the big reveal near the end. Pity, as more good YA science fiction with diversity on the agenda is really needed.
