Hmmm, what to say
I am way too old for the desired demographic but I do love a good teen angst book. For some reason I had the mistaken idea that this was a paranormal book so I was waiting for a big reveal that didn't happen.
I still don't get the Elite part of it or the stupid rules. Also, and I feel a bit hypocritical for saying this, sheesh does Trace cry alot! Honestly I get that bullying, especially by large numbers of children, is horrible and scary but she was like a watering can constantly falling down and sobbing.
Also, why were the other kids so mean?
Anyhoo, I did enjoy the book but it left me with more questions than answers.
Also, without giving away too many spoilers, Nixon was a bit of a cry baby too - his character didn't seem very realistic to me, either he is a normal teenager trying to do the best he can with a lot of responsibility or he fully embraces his destiny - in which case man up FFS!
