3.0

This book is best read when in middle school or with the intention to not think too critically about it. 
For a dystopia, the world building is very underwhelming, and for a romance, both of Juliette’s love interests are like walking Red Flags (not to mention they are only in love with what she represents to them tbh). 
However, I really enjoyed Juliette’s character and her development! She’s consistent in her personality and, in the face of literally everyone and their dog telling her what to do, she calculates all her options and uses her own judgement to make her choices. That’s rare for a female character! I found her sense of loyalty and trust issues to be incredibly consistent and relatable! Her POV really elevates this series.

I haven’t liked this book as much as the others in the series, I think that the whole background story of the main characters such as Juliette, Aaron and Adam are so interesting and important to the plot. The book on itself it’s very interesting, fast paced, entertaining; there’re some characters that are definitely amazing!! (Warner and Kenji)
