When Finn, a 16-year-old Enforcer-In-Training, learns that The Wall built to keep citizens safe from The Wild is really a cage, he starts questioning all he's been taught. Maybe animals aren't as dangerous as he's been conditioned to believe. Maybe his rebel parents aren't the bad guys. Maybe he's playing for the wrong team. Finn must choose a side; either way it will cost him. His family, or his future...but neither are as terrifying as what may lurk beyond The Wall.

Divergent meets Avatar meets 1984.
Audio is always better. The audio version important for this book because the narrator, Zachary Johnson, embodies the character of Finn. He also does an excellent job with the other characters--most memorably his mother and sister and of course the dog.
Spoiler alert: The book totally changes when Finn realizes that the dog can communicate telepathically. The entire section where he is discovering this is very well-written.
The whole book is filled with great scenes, but my favorite is when Finn is in the recovery room trying to explain to the cute nurse that she is the reason for his high blood pressure. The scene where he sneaks into the office and finds out that his family is on the watch list and his girlfriend's parents are in a work-camp is also intense.
The Adviser is Watching you. Can your Dog Save You?
If you liked the book, "Divergent," or the movie, "Avatar," you will probably enjoy this book. This is a clean, family friendly book. I received this book free in exchange for a fair review.
Great dystopian book.
