The truth can set her free.
For the past two months, Kitty Doe's life has been a lie. Forced to impersonate Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, in a hostile meritocracy on the verge of revolution, Kitty sees her frustration grow as her trust in her fake fiancé cracks, her real boyfriend is forbidden and the Blackcoat rebels she is secretly supporting keep her in the dark more than ever. But in the midst of discovering that her role in the Hart family may not be as coincidental as she thought, she's accused of treason and is forced to face her greatest fear: Elsewhere. A prison where no one can escape. As one shocking revelation leads to the next, Kitty learns the hard way that she can trust no one, not even the people she thought were on her side. With her back against the wall, Kitty wants to believe she'll do whatever it takes to support the rebellion she believes in - but is she prepared to pay the ultimate price?

Kitty is a shallow, stupid heroine - SPOILERS
Maybe. I would say it's entertaining if you have nothing else to listen to. The writing style is fantastic, the storytelling decent, and the performance excellent. But the heroine is lacking. She is not a strong lead character. She's obsessed with her personal relationship and can't see past it to the larger issues going on in the book. She makes selfish decisions and can't see it's not all about her. She never gets that people are fighting for their lives and she's in a position to do something about it but won't because of her boyfriend. I think the author was trying to create a sense of modesty/humbleness but it just comes off as self-centered shallowness. For heaven's sake, the battle for everything is going down and she takes a bath and has sex with her boyfriend! Then she gets mad because Knox is fighting instead of helping her. Really?!!I found this book so annoying and shallow that if it wasn't the end of the book when the ludicrous scene happened, I would have shut it off. May as well finish the last half hour...
I actually went back after writing this review and lowered the stars...I think I was too generous the first time with two...
(And I hate to talk like this - usually I am not so picky, but this book really was terrible, just because of Kitty.)
I would like to have seen Kitty develop, to mature. Since the point of the book seems to center on a revolution developing against the Hart family, it would be nice to see her begin to understand her role and accept it, becoming a strong heroine character instead of a useless, whiny, selfish pawn.
Really? Character is so stubborn to the point of idiocy.
