Review: I was a little bit sceptical of reading this type of science fiction type story. but I liked it way more than I thought I would. Despite the many sci fi elements this book also seemed to have many dystopian elements, which is what I really enjoyed about it. I was surprised by how well this world was put together and I liked discovering the many differences in the way these ship dwellers live their lives. I also liked that the story switched between Amy and Elder's perspectives. I think this let's the readers get to know and love both characters and sympathize with their problems. I liked the the right and wrong answer to solving the problems of the ship is not so straightforward. It made me excited to see what will happen next. There were some surprising plot twists that kept the story moving nicely. I was also glad that the setting was developed enough that made it a good read. Considering that I didn't have high expectations for this book I really enjoyed it. I will definitely continue with this series.
