This is the first book that I have read by this author and the story idea was quite intriguing. YA Scfi FI is not an easy genre to get right and for the most part this has it. The biggest problem for me was the pacing at the beginning. It felt like it took too long for me to get the information that I needed to get invested but once it got there I was glad that I had stuck with it. Once the action really kicked it the last part of the book became a real page turner.
Overall it was a pretty good read.
3 stars from me
