At first I wasn't so sure about this book, which I was asked to read by my sister-in-law.

I was confused in he beginning, simply because I have a hard time remembering the loads of character names used and thrown at me in books right away. This book is about 4 people: Clarke, Glass, Wells, and Bellamy and those that they love. They live on what seems to be a space station. Apparently something tragic happened on earth that destroyed it with radiation. It has been a few hundred years since and there is a system that is very strict on their space station. Many young kids get convicted of crimes and it seems as if there is little room for justice and for understanding at all.

Clarke is a young girl who had been confined for a few months. She was in love with Wells and cared so much for her parents who are scientists, when she found out a secret they were keeping and was concerned for them. She has no idea how to deal with this secret.

Glass (interesting name) is a girl who was also confined. The memories she has of Luke and wanting to make sure he is happy is all that matters to her. Something happened between them and she had to break it off, but a piece of her wants to never let him go.

Wells loves Clarke. She has no idea what he'd do for her and how much he is willing to give up anything to make sure she can live. His father is one of the people who is in charge and gives him advice that he believes is worth while. Wells will make you very irritated at the end of this book, I'm sure.

Bellamy seems to be the only person who has a sibling. He will do anything to protect her. He can survive just for her sake, but maybe his sister isn't all she seems to be to him anymore. Maybe someone else is starting to get his attention as well.

I was intrigued by this story and got very into it where I couldn't put it down after the first one hundred pages (so I finished the rest of it that day). There are many questions I have and then again there are many things yet to come that i am interested in finding out!! This was exciting!

The book is interesting and the plot lines playing out have potential, but it didn't feel like a complete book. We are really left hanging with several cliffhangers in the balance. Also, I didn't feel the society and harsh laws governing these people were explored in depth. There's the teen love interests and a bit of a love triangle (ugh), but there was more to these relationships than the usual YA fare. A good read, but my advice is wait until the sequel is available to complete more of the story.
