This is the story that sixteen-year-old Jansin Nordqvist has heard all of her life.
Jansin grew up in a civilization far below the Earth's surface. She's spent the last eight years in military intelligence training. So when her parents surprise her with a coveted yet treacherous trip above ground, she's prepared for anything. She's especially thrilled to feel the fresh air, see the sun, and view the wide-open skies and the ocean for herself.
But when raiders attack Jansin's camp and take her prisoner, she is forced to question everything she's been taught. What do her captors want? How will she get back underground? And if she ever does, will she want to stay after learning the truth?

Good but not great
Although the world and dystopian future were unique ideas the story followed the same old formula. Big bad government, kick ass trained teenage girl, wildly unbelievably 17 year old love interest, yada yada yada. The romance was shallow as were the friendships.
Good enough to read if you don't have anything great in your library waiting for you but not good enough that it will go on my recommended reading list.

Great story with believable characters and good narration. I do wish there were more character development. I didn't love or hate or really worry too much about the lead character but it was still believable and entertaining on many levels.
