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.
This book is complex. It's a little confusing to start (especially due to the fact that there isn't a map of Inside in the book) but as you read it gets easier to understand. The story follows the typical Dystopian formula, but that doesn't detract from the amazing setting and world building. The thing I liked about this book over a lot of the other Dystopians I've read is the fact that the main character isn't the only person getting things done. As the book progresses, you can sense the growing tension in all of the characters and the payoff is very satisfying. There's a tiny cliffhanger, but the sequel is already out, so no waiting!
