Nothing really happened in this book. Cassia walked around paranoid pretending to be stuck between two boys, when in reality, she knew who she wanted all along. I wasn’t surprised with whom she fell in love and I don’t like it.

I never bonded with any of the characters, despite the fact that we get a nice backstory for all/most of them. I do have to give it to Ally Condie in that she does some nice world building, however, she doesn’t do anything with it. There’s no real conflict or climax. I think the part where they haul Ky off is supposed to be that climax, but it didn’t really do much for me. I had a feeling that by Cassia placing him in the group she did, something would happen to him, it’s just where the story was heading.

I really wanted to like this book, but it lacked that something extra that I was looking for.
