Rated 2 out of 5 by from not really all that great when I first read the synopsis I thought it sounded really good, because it seemed alot like lois lowry's The Giver (which is my favourite book). but then when I was reading it I actually found it really boring. I got about 3/4 of the way through (never enjoying it) but then I decided to stop. If you REALLY want to read this just get it from the library.
