My name’s Sunny Grace Beaumont. Branded SGB/2/6895/03.12.93. Only child, self-taught computer geek and cancer survivor. Oh, and did I mention my dad’s the President? As you can imagine that’s sometimes a little problematic, especially when I want to sneak out. But it never got me into quite as much trouble as the night I ventured into the Ghetto – don’t ask me why I was there in the first place… it was stupid. Everyone knows that the Ghetto is where hardened criminals are sent to live out the remainder of their lives. At first the men that kidnap me are just as I’d imagine, mean and thoughtless, but slowly I begin to have doubts. I meet a guy. His name’s Sin, he has no Brand – a crime punishable by death – and he’s the rebel leader. I should hate him… but I don’t. Instead he opens my eyes to a whole other side of the Ghetto, where people are innocent of the crimes they’re accused of and helpless children suffer dreadful poverty. Is it possible that I’ve been lied to my entire life… that the governments been deceiving everyone? And how can I challenge the law my own dad is adamant to uphold?
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an HONEST review*
I LOVED this book. The relationships felt genuine to me, the flow and path that the story took was great. I loved the characters, and the little twists in plot kept me captivated! The branding aspect felt too possible, almost a bit scary.
The only gripe I might possibly have is that the end feels like a much shorter time period than is stated.
That last line, though. I'm dying! I mean, I like cliffhangers, but I'm gonna be dying until I can find out in the sequel! (For those who don't know me, this is GOOD THING)
