Did you read and enjoy The Giver? If so, this book is for you. It is similar - attempted perfect world - but updated to the times and features a female main character. Also check out the sequels - Crossed and Reached.
This is one of the best books I have ever read! The characters, particularly Augie, are fantastic. The story pulls you in immediately and stays with you long after the last page. I hope this first-time author continues writing!
