I was pleasantly surprised with this read considering I had no expectations going in, I just knew I wanted to read it before seeing the film. (Which I haven’t yet…but I will.)

It was however somewhat of a slow starter but once the pace picked up I was invested. I loved the dynamics of the characters, how could I not root for them.  

Although this is a book of fiction centred on an outbreak of a deadly disease and children having hidden abilities, it holds a very poignant message.

The ending wasn’t a big plot twist for me, but it most definitely brought it to an excellent climax Ruby makes the most selfless sacrifice and this has me eager to see where book two will take us. A very enjoyable Dystopian, YA read.
