I really like this book, the dystopian world of XVI felt so real, reading this book I had a real sense of repression. The police state world seemed very posssible. The star trek twist brought it back to the fantasy spectrum. Julie Karr's writing is deatailed, and well written. The characters are developed, if not sometimes annoying. The description of her settings I could picture myself at Wei's house as if I were right there with her. The relationship between Nina and Sal is not too forced with the right ammount of push and pull. Some many other things i could say but no spoilers. Read it.
