I'm not really sure how I feel about this book. I found it confusing in many places because I didn't understand what Lorders are doing or who pays their salaries. Most people seem to be afraid of them, and that makes me wonder who wants them there. I'm confused as to how or why so many teens would become terrorists that they'd need a system to deal with them, and even though I read the explanation quite carefully, I'm still confused. I do wonder whether Kyla's difference is accidental or engineered. I'm not in a huge hurry to read the second book because by the time it comes out, I'll have forgotten the plot (don't you HATE that?), but if someone puts a free copy into my hands, I'd read it. I like the possibility of missing children being slated but I still don't really understand who decides to wipe someone's memory and I still don't know who is behind it footing the bill. No one does medical procedures for free. The essential question that I haven't yet answer is, who benefits from these slatings?

I’m not usually someone who enjoys a story that is predominantly about the attraction between two people BUT I did like this one. The setting is one year after 9/11 and 16 year old Shirin, an American born Muslim whose family moves freq...
I love a good mystery, and although I correctly guessed the murderer in the first chapter, I still thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns.
