This book surprised me in so many awesome ways. I wasn't expecting to love Poe as much as I did with her flawed motivation for her goals in life. This author pulled me into this dystopian world she created and I felt as if I lived there too.
Not only did this author create a setting that jumped off the pages, but she breathed life into characters that all had flaws, struggled, laughed, cried, angered. The pacing was spot on to keep me reading and never wanting to stop. The author threw plot twists that delighted and surprised me and kept me wondering what was real, who could be trusted, and who would betray.
This is an emotionally gripping story with external and internal conflicts and made me think about what motivates me to do the things I do. Poe's journey is both physical and mental and concluded with an appropriate ending.
