Although it started off a bit slow I found this book picked up and then I was racing through to the end. The first half took 3 days and the 2nd half I finished in one afternoon.
The alternate universe with the strict controlling government was pretty standard as is the girl who grows up not knowing anything else and has her eyes opened to what her world is really like.
I still found it pretty entertaining and I enjoyed the "awakening" that June had, realizing slowly what was actually going on, although as the reader I caught most of the "twists" before they happened.
Spoiler-y comments on the romance in the novel hidden below:
These comments feel very negative to me and it sounds like I didn't enjoy the book, however I base my star rating on how I feel about the book near the end, and my instinct was to rate this book 4 stars. That may change when I rate the sequel, especially if it's significantly better and yet not quite up to the 5 star mark.
