Johnny Cockit accidently murdered a man when he was ten years old, which is why he was sent to Sonoran Correctional High School, a gender-segregated boarding school located in Phoenix, Arizona. Two months before graduation, Johnny and his friends are drugged and abducted by Walnut Cherryville secret watchers during an afternoon counseling session. Making decisions about the future has never felt important until the students are forced to work in a remote produce factory owned by the vengeful Quinton family. Walnut Cherryville is no ordinary factory; it’s the Quintons’ futuristic desert village governed by the principle that people live better-quality lives when they don’t make their own decisions. To ease the burden of life’s basic yet complicated choices, the government limits misdirection by choosing every citizen’s career path and lifestyle. Johnny and his friends plot an escape but must avoid being recaptured because abandonment of the village is a crime punishable by death. In a scandalous turn of events narrated by Johnny and his delinquent friends Vincent, Laura, and Collins, they discover that the reason they were captured roots back to an ancient family feud between the Cockit and Quinton families.

Due to strong sexuality, this book is intended for young adults ages 14 and up.

Karen Barber | 4620 comments 10%-not gripped right now. Don't understand why they've been taken to WCV, or what the point of the place is. The characters aren't particularly pleasant, though the sarcasm might win me over.


Karen Barber | 4620 comments Ch1-9. Sinister set-up and this is not the kind of place you'd want to be stuck in. I don't see how they're so accepting of it all.


Karen Barber | 4620 comments 40%-they don't seem to have much of an idea what they're doing.

I agree!

Karen Barber | 4620 comments Up to ch21-Collins seemed right to be paranoid.


Karen Barber | 4620 comments 87%-still not really engaging with this, and I'm unsure why.

Personally, I don't think it did. For this reason, I don't feel the voices were that distinctive.
