There are people in this world who are Nobody. No one sees them. No one notices them. They live their lives under the radar, forgotten as soon as you turn away.
That's why they make the perfect assassins.
The Institute finds these people when they're young and takes them away for training. But an untrained Nobody is a threat to their organization. And threats must be eliminated.
Sixteen-year-old Claire has been invisible her whole life, missed by the Institute's monitoring. But now they've ID'ed her and send seventeen-year-old Nix to remove her. Yet the moment he lays eyes on her, he can't make the hit. It's as if Claire and Nix are the only people in the world for each other. And they are—because no one else ever notices them.
The whole idea of people that just aren't notice, and are trained to be assassins, it both a really cool, awesome idea, and a bit of a scary one, too. Because the Institute, just from the synopsis, is bad. They take kids, kids, to train to be killers. And because they missed one, they're going to kill her? Bad.
Such a great and unique book! I loved how Claire and Nix fit together, they've both had to deal with being nobodies, and now the other, and other nobodies, basically, are the only ones that actually notice them. So the rarity of that, makes their relationship special!
But of course, the Institute is evil, and there's the two kids that Nix has to save, and that Claire helps him with that, since she's getting used to the power that being a nobody, actually gives her, and yeah, what they discover is pretty interesting, and information that they needed to know!
Because if there's nobodies, that means that there should be, using logic, their opposites, people that are there, and well loved, and able to control people with that, even if they're not really great people. So yeah, with that ending, I'd love for a sequel! It'd be awesome!
Such a great book, I enjoyed it a lot, and yeah, I'd love a sequel, because I really loved this book!
