As Sarah Grants, debut novel, it was very well written and compared a girl living in a dystopia with a regular average day girl. The novel included romance, mystery as well as a suspenseful plot twist. It can relate to teen girls who true hard workers are trying to change the world for the better. This novel will keep your eyes glued for more. Recommended for anyone seeking slight mystery. Hira A.; Teen Reviewer
