I’ll be honest. What initially attracted me to this book was the cover (It’s absolutely GORGEOUS!!) and the huge amounts of hype surrounding this book pre-release. I was not disappointed. Please don’t let the negative reviews stop you from reading this book!!Read it, and formulate your own opinion. To me, this book was nothing short of GREATNESS.

The general idea is that the Society is perfect. they do not, under any circumstances make mistakes. Cassia Reyes has complete, unwavering faith in the Society that dictates who you marry, what you eat and how much, where you work and even as far as regulating the amount of personal items kept in your home. Suddenly though, everything changes. The people of the Society find themselves in a rebellion.

I liked that the romance in this book developed gradually. It didn’t feel rushed like so many other books. They didn’t see each other, and in the next chapter swear undying devotion after one brief conversation. Normally, the romance completely obliterates the story, and I didn’t feel like this was the case in this book. There were other things going on besides the fact that the characters were in love, and it seemed like the romance took the back burner for a while. Really cool. I’m so tired of love stories anyway.

Cassia was a breath of fresh air. She wasn’t weak minded, and she had spunk and initiative once she made the decision to question authority and take action. At times she was afraid, but that only made her more relatable.

This book was amazing. 5/5 stars.
