really liked it
bookshelves: 2014, dystopian, nwh-bookclub

I really did enjoy this book and could not put it down. I was very intrigued with the world that was left behind after so many wars. The story was reminiscent of Hunger Games and Divergent. Even the cover wasn't that unique. But it still did a really good job with being different. My only complaint was that I felt the characters were too smart and really lucky. For graduating high school they had a lot of training and specialization. Cia the protagonist just knew everything that it didn't feel real but I still liked her. I can't wait to read the next book.

I would recommend this book to those who are fan of dystopian books.

Mandy I think all the kids were ridiculously. smart, but that was the point. They graduate from high school knowing more then most college grads in our world!


Sofia The Great Yeah, but I just don't see that as possible nor did they realistically had all that time.
