This city is falling.
Seventeen-year-old Anais Finch lives in a world where everyone is born beautiful, where every dream is a possibility - and where their every move and every piece of personal information is recorded by an ID picochip inserted behind their right ear. When technology giant, Civitas, finally announces the launch of their highly anticipated Scholarly Learning Programs, which allow people to download and learn any subject instantly, Anais can hardly wait.
But not everyone is pleased with society's progress, and not everyone wants to fit in. When Anais witnesses a brutal murder on an innocent citizen and is implicated in the crime, she becomes determined to uncover the truth, especially when others like it begin to occur all over the city. But it may already be too late for Anais to stop the man who calls himself 'the Hacker' before he commits his most appalling crime yet...
I enjoyed this book, it was a really entertaining dystopian, from the odd explosion, to the fun way that it was written, both the writing, and the characters! Very awesome and amazing to read! Just a really great book!
It was really great to read about Anais, because she got sucked into this situation, making her pretty darned near close to the centre when everybody else got pulled in as it got bigger and bigger! So yeah, that was really awesome!
I really enjoyed all the elements of this book, from the dystopian, to the YA, the romance, the mystery, and the action! Really fantastic, and it came together really well, just so great to read, you know? Really great!
This is the start of the series, and I really enjoyed how the ending reflected that, even though it's a bit of a "gah, I want the next book now" kind of thing. Because that was how good this book-and this ending-were!
Such a great book, and yeah, really enjoyed it and can't wait for the sequel!
