THIS IS SERIOUSLY MY FAVOURITE BOOK EVER!!!! It's set in 2050, in a world where the government are so tight you can hardly breathe a word against them without being eliminated. It is all about teenagers who were past criminals, and have had their minds blanked with futuristic technology to make them knew people. The main character is Kyla, and she soon finds out that she is different to all the other people who have been slated because she can remember her parts of her past. She finds another slated boy who she becomes friends with as he soon decides that he wants to know who he was before as well. Kyla and Ben manage to get in touch with one people who have set up a website to help find people who went missing, being taken by the 'Lorders' (the people who work for the government). The characters in the book are very good because you get an idea of their personality really early on, and can relate to how they are feeling. It is the most clever storyline, and I get so so so sucked into it I can hardly tear my eyes away!!! The second book is fractured, and I was so relieved that she'd written a second one because one just wasn't enough. There's everything you could want from a book, thrill, romance, tension building up, danger, nail biting scenes. I am in love with it. One of my friends was telling me about futuristic books, and I must say I was not interested at all. It was the cover of this book that got me interested, it looks so mysterious, (they say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but everyone does it don't they) and I'm so glad that I didn't just push it aside because it was futuristic because it is honestly the best book ever!!! :D. I'd recommend this book to 14-18 years, because for anyone younger than that it's hard to get an idea of the concept.
