The Burn is full of nuclear fallout, roving gangs, anarchy, unreliable plumbing. That's what Terra's father tells her. She has lived her whole life in comfort in a colony at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. She hates it. And she would pay any price to leave. But when Terra finally escapes the colony, she finds out her father is right.
She finds a group of survivors that quickly become friends, and every day with them is a race for survival. When she witnesses and commits unspeakable acts, she has to decide where her loyalty lies: with the colony she despises or The Burn, where every day is filled with nightmares.

I loved this book! It had some awesome twists that I never saw coming. I never felt there was a slow or boring part, including the ending. I read it in two days because I couldn't put it down! I was a little torn on one part of the ending because of certain outcomes of a character I didn't like (one you're not meant to like), but at the same time I wouldn't have changed any part of how it ended. I can't say more without giving things away and DO NOT let what I just said stop you from reading this book! It really is such a good book. I read a lot and the last time I read a book I liked this much was last year when the 3rd Hunger Games book came out.
Great story! Awaiting the next book!
