Nobody by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Summary:(from goodreads) There are people in this world who are Nobody. No one sees them. No one notices them. They live their lives under the radar, forgotten as soon as you turn away. That’s why they make the perfect assassins.The Institute finds these people when they’re young and takes them away for training. But an untrained Nobody is a threat to their organization. And threats must be eliminated. Sixteen-year-old Claire has been invisible her whole life, missed by the Institute’s monitoring. But now they’ve ID’ed her and send seventeen-year-old Nix to remove her. Yet the moment he lays eyes on her, he can’t make the hit. It’s as if Claire and Nix are the only people in the world for each other. And they are—because no one else ever notices them.
 
Review: There were two things about this book that caught my attention when it was released. First, it was by an author that i was familiar with and have enjoyed books from before. The other thing was the premise. For the most part, I thought this world was developed really well. I would like to know the history behind this world and how it came to be. The book was well paced. There was enough action to keep things interesting without becoming to predictable. The characters were interesting although the dynamic between them was kind of strange. As the book went on I liked them more and more and was rooting for them to succeed by the end. I also liked the fact that this book is a stand alone. The story could have continued but it doesn't really need to and I like the way things were left. This book is not over the top as far as scifi goes. There was just enough to keep it entertaining along with a dystopian element which i wasn't expecting. This is probably my favorite book that i have read by this author so far and I will be reading more in the future.
