Four hundred years in the future, the Earth has turned primitive following a nuclear fire that laid waste to civilization and nature. Though the radiation fallout has ended, for some unknowable reason every person is born with a twin. Of each pair one is an Alpha - physically perfect in every way - and the other an Omega burdened with deformity, small or large.
With the Council ruling an apartheid-like society, Omegas are branded and ostracized while the Alphas have gathered the world’s sparse resources for themselves. Though proclaiming their superiority, for all their effort Alphas cannot escape one harsh fact: Whenever one twin dies, so does the other. Cass is a rare Omega, one burdened with psychic foresight. While her twin, Zach, gains power on the Alpha Council, she dares to dream the most dangerous dream of all: equality. For daring to envision a world in which Alphas and Omegas live side by side as equals, both the Council and the Resistance have her in their sights.

Cannot make it!!!
Rarely do I stop a book, but this one I can't finish. It's painful.
The writer had a good concept but overwrites constantly with similes and metaphors. The character is not developed. You only meet the main character for a long time.
It reminded me of a wanna-be Divergent or Hunger Games, but very little development of plot.
The reader -- yawn -- fell asleep twice. Again - she read exactly like Hunger Games with very little change in pace or voice. To be fair - there were few direct quotes.
It's mostly an author telling about a story rather than letting her characters speak.
It's one of my worst reads, and I love this genre. I generally am pretty accepting of new ideas.
