Those in power have little affinity or compassion for the children and see them more as a means to an end. Why 19? This is fleshed out in the story. Also, their situation is described in full detail, less one bit - their individual past. Since they'd all have back stories, perhaps they'd come about in following books.
What you ultimately get from this debut author is a YA, dystopian story surrounding a core group of teens. This group sets off to destroy the relay that controls the countdown-to-death, but what they find is something much larger and unsettling. To divulge more would lead to spoilers. The book could stand-alone, but definitely ends as a launch to follow-up works.
For me, this book was a slow start and a bit to young on the YA scale. It is pretty clean and does have some violence and death. I'd be fine having my teen read this book.
When it comes to books, three-stars isn't a critical rating. It simply means there was some entertainment value, but doesn't stand out.
It reminded me of the Maze Runner, and I loved the way the story progressed, but it felt a little rushed toward the end as it ended in a flurry. This wasn't necessarily bad, and the fast-paced action was enough to keep me engaged, but every once in a while I was hoping the story would stop and take a breath.
That being said, the author is very talented and the characters are full of depth and interesting. I think reader's of the young adult genre won't be disappointed with this debut author, and I wish her the best of luck in the future!
