Rebellion is a very unique book in the world of government-heavy, dystopian novels. Instead of fighting against an oppressive society, Eleanor simply walks away from the path accepted by most everyone else. In her goal to find the Association, she turns from a naive and somewhat spoiled girl to a strong woman who is willing to fight for what she wants. The characters in this story are not perfect... especially not Eleanor. Her troubles start because of her own actions and lack of foresight, and she really doesn't start thinking until her life is on the line. She does improve, however, and the plot is interesting and complex enough to keep you reading.

I have been waiting to read this book for several years after I knew Rachel was writing it, and it was everything I had hoped for and far more!
The author was able to build up a real working world that you feel there. Fully in her world, it is not just the descriptions of the world around her character Eleanor but details as types of food and cultures that she has created a living world for the reader to step into and join Eleanor as she leaves school to start on a life full of adventure.
Wanting to leave the comforts of a government school and a job already selected for her, Eleanor has her hart set upon becoming an Assassin which is not the sort of thing a nice young girl should even know about let alone dream of becoming!
As the book progresses you feel that you grow up with Eleanor as she makes her way through life.
So without giving any more away all I can say is that this is a must read, and I am personally looking forward to the next in the series.
The plot is pretty straightforward but it's still quite a fun read. I found myself not liking the second half so much as the first however, because of the lack of actual "action". Sure Eleanor has these tests she needs to pass to get approval from her peers, but really there's not that much going on, and they're really easy tests too.
I did however like the few twists and turns, and the characters were thoroughly enjoyable. My one complaint is Eleanor's "turn for the worse" as I would put it. I liked her much better in the first half where she at least didn't make everything about winning. It's her flaw though, along with being stubborn, impatient, and willingly putting others at risk. Which means she still has a lot of growing to do.
I'm not sure I will buy the sequel, although I am curious to see how the author will strengthen Daniel x Eleanor's relationship (which seems likely to happen, I think the author had a change of heart for Raf).
I finished the book thinking, "Eh..." because while it wraps up well, I didn't exactly like Eleanor's attitude anymore.
