So I was super excited about this book!!!! And then I read it...it was okay. I think I may have hyped it up in my head too much. I mean it started out good and I felt like it was really gonna get somewhere...and then it kept going and going and going....and eventually I'm over half way through and it still hasn't picked up!!! I mean, the author does a good job of filling you in on information, but it just takes so long and then there is no like climactic point to drive it home!!! I got to the end and felt very dissatisfied. Now I do have to say that if there is a second book, I would read it because it is totally set up for one. But if there are no more books to follow up XVI, then I have to say as a stand alone book, it just didn't do it for me. If you like dystopian fiction and feel like you have the time to give to a possible new series...I say pick it up and take a look!
It seems to me that this book is very flippy floppy....meaning people either really liked it or didn't. Be the judge for yourself.
Here's the synopsis and reviews, check it out!!!
"Nina Oberon's life is pretty normal: she hangs out with her best friend, Sandy, and their crew, goes to school, plays with her little sister, Dee. But Nina is 15. And like all girls she'll receive a Governing Council-ordered tattoo on her 16th birthday. XVI. Those three letters will be branded on her wrist, announcing to all the world—even the most predatory of men—that she is ready for sex. Considered easy prey by some, portrayed by the Media as sluts who ask for attacks, becoming a "sex-teen" is Nina's worst fear. That is, until right before her birthday, when Nina's mom is brutally attacked. With her dying breaths, she reveals to Nina a shocking truth about her past—one that destroys everything Nina thought she knew. Now, alone but for her sister, Nina must try to discover who she really is, all the while staying one step ahead of her mother's killer." -goodreads.
