This YA story is a quick read. It is part of a proposed three-book series and ends on a cliffhanger. I'm not in the target audience, but I'm not sure how many YA readers will enjoy this story. It's written more for the parents of those YA readers with a lot of warnings about disenfranchised youth and the signs to look for.
It also contains a lot of YA tropes: it's written in first person POV, the heroine is the 'odd' girl with the funny sidekick, the hero is impossibly handsome who still 'falls in love' with the odd girl anyway, her mother is dead, they're fighting against the establishment, and so on. Judith, or Jude, is unbelievably gullible and won't listen to her father's advice while still giving a pass to Cain's obedience to his father figure, Jo-Jo.
It's very well-written and I did enjoy the book. My issues with it have more to do with my own personal reading preferences right now.
