“Imagine every space in this room filled with people, constantly being jostled and pushed. In the lower levels there is no quiet place. No peace. To a scrub, this room is paradise.
"I drew a deep breath. I’d spoken more in one burst to this stranger whose room I’d invaded than anyone else in weeks. And with a single word he could alert the Pop Cops and send me to the Chomper. We stared at each other for a few heartbeats.
"Before I could retreat, he said, 'My name’s Riley Narelle Ashon. Any time you need peace, you’re welcome to use my hideaway.'
Keep Your Head Down. Don’t Get Noticed. Or Else.
"I’m Trella. I’m a scrub. A nobody. One of thousands who work the lower levels, keeping Inside clean for the Uppers. I’ve got one friend, do my job, and try to avoid the Pop Cops. So what if I occasionally use the pipes to sneak around the Upper levels? Not like it’s all that dangerous - the only neck at risk is my own. Until I accidentally start a rebellion and become the go-to girl to lead a revolution.
"I should have just said no.…"
“Inside Out surprised and touched me on so many levels--it’s a wonderful, thoughtful book full of vivid characters and a place--Inside--that is by turns alien and heartbreakingly familiar.” (Rachel Caine, New York Times best-selling author)

Better than I expected -- by a long shot!
I was a bit skeptical of the plot line, and wasn't sure if i should get it. I really liked Amanda Ronconi's reading of the Jane Jameson series, and decided to give it a go. I am _really_ glad I did! This is one of the more enjoyable books I have listened to in the past several months.
The story was intriguing. A seemingly impossible world brought to life in a way that I believed it and kept wanting to hear what would happen next.
I bought this book primarily because I have liked Amanda Ronconi's narration of other books. This is right up there with the best of her stuff.
