The world was an excellent revision of our planet. You have the same geography, a slight change to the prevalent societies in today’s world, but then you add a catastrophic event that changed how Heidi’s society was formed. With a caste system that is totally original, the author kept my attention. And although I assumed that this book was written on Earth, there were obvious advances in technology that were shown throughout the book that insinuated that this story took place in the future.
The main character Heidi was a very believable 17-year-old.Read more ›
The premise is intriguing: in a world where a class system keeps many from ever experiencing true freedom, boys can compete to win entry into the upper class, but only by risking their lives in a gruesome, grueling competition. For the girls, a life of oppression and violence is pretty much all they have to look forward to. Heidi, the heroine, decides to give the upper class the proverbial middle finger when she disguises herself and her best friend as boys in order to enter the competition and win their place in upper society, and their freedom.
Things go so wrong, and she ends up in the competition alone, hiding her true identity from all the other competitors except for one, and the registrar who takes pity on her. As she competes, and succeeds, she makes plenty of enemies, especially in the President, who feels she has made a fool of him by sneaking into the competition. The registrar who helps her happens to be the President's son, making the matter even more complicated, and she ends up having all sorts of complicated romantic feelings towards him.
I like the way the book deals with hatred and bigotry. Homosexuality is deemed almost a crime, and to be a gay person makes you something 'less' than even the lowest of the lower class. But the way this is dealt with allows the main character to address her own inner bigotry and realize that hating someone for their sexual orientation was as bad as hating someone for their class.Read more ›
The style of writing is good and the plot picks up straight away, which I like. All of these types of books are similar to the hunger games, but not so similar that you find yourself comparing the two. A bit short, but I'll definitely be buying the second book.
