This book reminded me of THE GIVER. A lot. But written from an older and female perspective. Much like Jonas in THE GIVER, Cassia lives in a highly regulated and controlled world, and much like Jonas, it takes her a very long time to see the flaws that so blatantly surround her. There is something so engaging about reading a world where you, the reader, know that things are wrong. You can’t help rooting for main character to open their eyes and start breaking down walls.
