Welcome to the wasteland At fifteen, the citizens of Prin marry. At seventeen, they reproduce. And at nineteen, they die. Esther thinks there's more to life than toiling at the assignments—Harvesting, Gleaning, Excavating—day after day under the relentless sun, just hoping to make it to the next day. She doesn't care that her best friend, a variant, is considered "the enemy." She doesn't care that Levi, who controls the Source, is the real enemy and might send his Taser boys after her if she makes one wrong move. Then Caleb shows up. Could there be another way to fight for survival?

And of course the fight for power is struggle that is starting a battle. I really loved the plot. Built up beautifully with so much power in the words and wo...
