This is a dystopian, and so there are some hard topics that are brought up. One example is using certain women is a breeding tool only to help populate a civilization. It is not something I enjoyed reading, but it is necessary for this story.
My biggest issue while reading it was that there were a few times where Cori says things in the story where you're confused as to how she would have any idea about them. That is explained later on, thankfully.
There's one thing, I can't say without spoilers, that happens in this story that I was really excited about. It really helped build this story into what it became.
I can't wait to start book 2, so I can see what's going to happen!
