bookshelves: young-adult, middle-school, high-school
Recommended for: teens, teen girls
Read in July, 2009

I agree with someone's previous statement that this is like a "1984" for the young adult crowd. It's a fun read--especially for a teenage audience--but for some reason it failed to completely "hook" me as a reader (perhaps because I am not a young adult?). I loved the theme but it didn't completely meet my expectations (though I can't say why for sure).

Lily Kendall I've read this book and liked it...haven't read the rest of the series.

Megan Franks My librarian-to-be friends have read most of the series and they like them all.

Amy I read the first book and HAD to read more--it's not like any world I've read about in other sci-fi books!
