Goodreads Synopsis: “Before you stands the future.”
Straight-laced, sixteen-year-old Rebecca can’t wait for her Acceptance. A fancy ball, eligible bachelors, and her debut as an official member of society. Instead, the Machine rejects Rebecca. Labeled as a future criminal, she’s shipped off to a life sentence in a lawless penal colony.
A life behind barbed-wire fences with the world’s most dangerous people terrifies Rebecca. She reluctantly joins a band of misfit teens in a risky escape plan, complete with an accidental fiancé she’s almost certain she can learn to love.
But freedom comes with a price. To escape a doomed future and prove her innocence, Rebecca must embrace the criminal within.
My Thoughts: I received a copy of this via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I went into this thinking that it would just be okay, but I actually really enjoyed this. I was a fan of all of the characters and that rarely happens. Rebecca, our main character, was great and she was flawed which is something that needs to be in more books. The story itself was great and held my interest the entire time. This book was a super fast read, once I started reading I just kept going and didn’t want to put it down. The way things are in this world could easily be the future our world is heading to and that was kind of scary. I picked up the sequel to this the second I finished it because of the way this ended. Highly Recommend!
