Pawn  - Aimee Carter

I love dystopians where people actually die.


That sounds terrible, but I'm supposed to believe that this all seeing, all knowing government allows these kids to talk openly about rebellion and just...fucks with their emotions to show them who's boss? (Looking at you, Matched.) No, they gun them down. Probably in public. Maybe in a sporting event.


Anyway, this is really good and enjoyable. Probably the best straight "teen vs. government" story I've read since The Hunger Games. I have read a lot of blah-to-shitty retreads of this plot in the last two years, but this one feels new.
