Keep Your Head Down.
Don't Get Noticed.
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? The only neck at risk is my own…until I accidentally start a rebellion and become the go-to girl to lead a revolution.
MY THOUGHTS: This book was a combination of concepts and traits from Twilight, Hunger Games and the Uglies series all wrapped up in one with many new twists and turns, and I think I've enjoyed it just as much, if not more. The actions and drama drew me in right away!
Trella is very similar to Katnis in Hunger Games because she wanted to fight against oppression, and was torn between two men whom she cared for. Also in the aspect that she never wanted kids because they're doomed to be scrubs and she didn't want to put anyone through that. On the other hand, Trella's character reminded me if Bella from Twilight because she never fit in and always felt like there was more to life than what she was presented with.
The whole plot is about the lowers and uppers and the propaganda that the controllers have been feeding them to hate each other to prevent an uprising, but as you may guess, that only works for so long.
I loved this book and couldn't wait to read book #2
Okay, I did prove that there's more to Inside than we knew. That a whole world exists beyond this cube we live in. And finding that led to a major rebellion—between worker scrubs like me and the snobby uppers who rule our world. Make that ruled. Because of me, we're free. I thought that meant I was off the hook, and could go off on my own again—while still touching base with Riley, of course. He's the one upper I think I can trust. But then we learned that there's outside and then there is Outside.
And something from Outside wants In.
...A book well written that I feel like guys and girls would both enjoy! :)
