I liked this book, but I feel like I set my expectations too high. This wasn't one of my favorite dystopians; there are tons, and I mean tons out there that are better than this. But I enjoyed it.I thought the first 175 or so pages could be shortened to about 80 or 90. The beginning was super slooooooooow. Pretty much nothing happened for almost half of the book. I also didn't like that Teresa was "introduced" pretty early on, but wasn't really in the story until about 3/4 of the way through. The ending was a cliffhanger literally, and I will probably read the next book(s) in the future.
