I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. I bought it on a whim because I liked the blurb, but because I only paid just over $5 for it, I truthfully wasn't expecting much. Funny - because now I have it ranked right up there with 'The Hunger Games' for favorite dystopian novels. I loved the easy-flow writing style which provided just the perfect amount of descriptive prose to make me feel like I was right there alongside the main character. The multidimensional characters were beautifully developed throughout the story. Finally the storyline grabbed me from the first page and never let go until the final word. I am not a reader who likes sequels, but I have to say I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. 5 Ginormous Stars!!
