Hi Thanks for the reply,
The Smurfette Principle is a term that came from a NYTimes article written back in the 90s. The author was commenting on a developing trope in animated shows & some literature where you have a large group of male characters & only 1, usually exceptional, female. There's a pretty good analysis here:
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TheSmurfettePrinciple on the tv tropes wiki.
I was curious because I don't know if I want to invest time in a book, or most likely a trilogy, that goes for such an easy plot device early on. I have a sinking feeling that this author has also gone for a few other easy tropes. Like redshirts--- I think it's interesting that we are introduced to so few of the boys out of the 50+ in the Glade by name. Just like Star Trek, I betting that a lot of secondary characters get offed in dramatic ways in the effort to find their way out.
While I like a good escapist fiction - I prefer writers that exercise a little more ingenuity.
Sorry for the long reply. Hope it was helpful.
