I really don't know what happened here, but damn. This book was just bad. I didn't enjoy 95% of it, and if it wasn't for a NetGalley review, I would have put it down close to the beginning. The cover picture and the blurb set me up for a book I thought I'd really like. I did not.

A frightening phenomenon is occurring. Kids are killing grown-ups. The reason or the rhyme is not established until the very end in hurried fashion as if it were an afterthought. I've seen it called dystopian, but meh. It really isn't. Some bizarre role-switching of the main child in the book, the story told through the eyes of someone with Asperger's Syndrome, and a lot of boring in between.

I really disliked this book. It didn't flow well at all.

NetGalley & the publisher provided the book and I provided my honest opinion.
