JUST finished. Holy emotions. A friend of mine told me about this book awhile ago and lent me his copy. Because I already had a mountain of library and ebooks to read, it got placed on the back burner for awhile.
Kind of a neat story: C.J. Redwine actually wrote some of this book down the street from my house at a Books-A-Million where my friend worked.
I loved this book. Redwine did an amazing job creating this dystopian world and I loved the storyline.
Rachel was a great female lead. Sure, she was impulsive, but I think that was part of what made her so likeable. She actually acted like a 16 year old would, making rash decisions, not always thinking ahead of what might happen.
Logan, as the male lead, completely offsets that. He is planned, precise, and balances her well. I definitely heart him. C.J.- you'd better not have anything come between the two of them in book 2! They strengthen each other and support each other, its not one way or the other. I love that.
This book will lead you on a roller coaster of emotions, but despite everything our protagonists have gone through at the end of the book hope is still attainable.
