Publisher's Summary

An unforgettable tale brimming with suspense, mystery and romance - The Girl Who Dared to Think will thrill fans of The Gender Game, Divergent, and The Hunger Games....
How do you fight an enemy when they're inside your mind?
A gargantuan glass-walled tower looms over a deadly wilderness. They say it's all that's left.
The Tower's survival is humanity's survival, and each must serve it faithfully....
Twenty-year-old Liana Castell must be careful what she thinks. Her life is defined by the number on her wristband - a rating out of 10 awarded based on her usefulness and loyalty to the Tower, and monitored by a device in her skull. A device that reports forbidden thoughts.
Liana is currently a four, the lowest possible acceptable score, and despite her parents' perfect scores of 10, she struggles to increase it. Rebellious ideas come all too easily, and resentfulness seems part of her being. She is an overseer-in-training, but her future will be dark if she cannot raise her worth....
Threes require drug treatment.
Twos are isolated.
Ones disappear.
When Liana's worst nightmare comes to pass and she drops to a three, desperation spurs her down a path few dare to tread. A chance encounter with a cocky young man whose shockingly dissident attitude toward the Tower couldn't possibly have earned him the perfect "10" on his wrist, sets her on a trail to save herself - even at the risk of dropping lower.
Stalking the young man seemed like a simple enough task, but after events take an unexpected twist, Liana finds herself taking a treacherous dive into the darkest depths of the Tower...and the decades' old secrets buried within.
In a society where free thinking can make you a criminal, one girl dares to try....

Narrator killed it for me

I was excited to see this after I finished the gender game series, but I was disappointed in the narration of this book. I'm sure Kristen Leigh has her good books; however, this isn't one of them... every sentence is delivered like a news headline. I thought I could deal with it for the sake of the story but couldn't manage even after it started tying in with the Gender Game. I guess I'll be reading this series rather than listening to it.

I loved it.

I really enjoyed this book! I'm hooked! I still like The Gender Games better, but I have no doubt in time these characters will grow on me =) Thanks for another awesome series, and I love that it's apart of The Gender Games world.

Brilliant

Another start to a action based , story. It makes you think, what would you do if your moods or thoughts made your number drop. Where when you reach 3 you need to be worried , because if you reach 1 you could just disappear. Loved listening to this first installment and am deeply disappointed that the next installment is not yet on audible so will have to wait and hope its soon, although the kindle book format is out there now . Bella has done it again , brilliant

Slow starter!

It took me a couple of chapters to really get on with the writing style and the characters but then I was hooked and couldn't stop listening! Can not wait for the next instalment!

fantasticly narrated and full of suspense

loved it! The tower's size is hard to comprehend and the designated areas are difficult to navigate in my head but it doesn't really matter with such great characters

Movie Worthy

Fantastic books, I'm up to number 4. Seriously movie worthy, would love to see it on the big screen. Liana is the next Mockingjay.
