“Deliciously enigmatic.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“The minute I read Carol Lynch Williams' The Haven, I knew I was in love with this book. First, it's a great story. Secondly, it touches on some important real-world issues going on right now.” ―xoJane.com
“Williams successfully employs an emotionally resonant first-person narrative to tell a story that is both horrific and uncomfortably plausible....Gripping.” ―Booklist
“With themes similar to Lowry's The Giver and Farmer's House of the Scorpion as well as Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go, it's still a compelling work in its own right--atmospheric, tense, and thought provoking. Shiloh's voice is believable, and her poignant yearning for experience--once she stops taking the Tonic--and her musings on the meaning of life and what it means to be human will linger with readers for a long time.” ―The Horn Book
“Williams's futuristic world is a chilling one….readers will be caught up in piecing together the disturbing truth about the Haven and then seeing how the escape plan unfolds. Between ethical considerations and an ambiguous ending, this is sure to spark discussion.” ―VOYA

The story was very interesting, alittle shocking and at times very depressing.
This is an unusual story and for those of you who enjoy some disturbing details, this book will be for you.
I hope the real future never looks like this!
