wow! this one was a tough slog. i wept. i openly wept over this book. this may be the only book in recent years to ever move me in such a way.
it's post-apocalyptic, which speaks to my dark and twisty soul (and has apparently become a specialty of my academic career). basically, i've read A LOT of post-apocalyptic and dystopian fiction, and it takes A LOT to impress me in these genres. this book pulls it off easily.
i don't want to reveal anything about the plot, because that would ruin it for everybody. read this book. it's worth it.
probable next read: maze runner by james dashner
