5 stars

Review: I give this book five stars because it had the right level of mystery, adventure, survival, and fantasy. It was interesting, and hooked me from the very start. It had a lot of relatable situations, and heart gripping scenes as well. It was very easy to finish because it was so addicting. Part of what made it interesting for me was that there were a lot of characters that were fun to keep track of. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes science fiction, or dystopian novels.
