I borrowed this at the school library because I'd heard about it and really wanted to read it. And it was totally worth the hype. I love this book, it is the best dystopian I have ever read. It was realistic and heartbreaking. The greatest part was there was no underlying romance that overtook the dystopian setting. The world and the terrifying situations it presents to the characters are the main focus of the story and they are original and compelling.
It's definitely a confronting read, but it gives you a lot to think about. It's a big improvement on the last few dystopians I've read (ie. Delirium and Birthmarked). I really like the world the author has created and the story she has constructed around it. The best part it - it's a trilogy! So keep your eyes open in February 2013, because Fuse is going to be released!
