I read this book, I believe, in junior high. It's one of those novels that sucks you into the story and doesnt let you go till you've reached the end, and then want more.

It's about these kids, set in the future, when all the adults are gone. Poof, gone. And these kids are trying to survive in a world run by machines when at 12 years old you might as well kiss yourself goodbye because you're old enough to become a drone of some kind, or food.

So there's a rogue group who are trying to change things and Gold Eye, the main character is rescued by them and starts going on missions with them, where he learns more about life, love and growing up.

I really enjoyed this book and if you like any of Nix's previous works you'll like this too. Or even if you're starting on this and you're reading Nix for the first time (this was my first book by him too) you'll appreciate this one and want to read more of his work.
