VeganYANerds - I’m so glad you enjoyed this, hun! I loved the cover from the moment I saw it but then read a few negative reviews, so I’m happy to read a positive one!

I like that Alenna develops over the course of the story and I’m so keen to read another sci fi/dystopian YA, especially if it has a similar feel to THG!

Kristen - I’ve been wanting to read this since I first laid eyes on the cover at B&N. With every new review I want to read it even more. The library doesn’t have it yet, so I might just have to buy this one! Thanks for the review. It sounds amazing!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Ooh! I am SO EXCITED to read this because it sounds awesome. The concept is definitely intriguing, especially the idea of the Wheel.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - I really enjoyed this too – Except I felt like I was left wanting just a bit more! I loved the Wheel and the world that was created there, and especially the story behind it! I’m not quite sure I liked the romance enough, but definitely interested in reading the next book! Definitely some great things happening there.
