A really nice balance of action and character--thoughtfully entertaining. With an interesting setting that's a bit of a Lord of the Flies, Mad Max, and Hunger Games mash-up. I'm looking forward to book two.

I was looking forward to reading this book until they started cussing pretty bad. I was disappointed.

Coarse Language: By the 11th page there was F, S, A and D. This ruined the book for me. So be careful if you get this book.
