I 100% repressed everything in this book when I first read it as a kid. Way darker than I remember. Still very enjoyable. The content POV switches with no warning are very jarring. 

Overall a good start. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

ok honestly this was so much better than i expected it to be. I remember not liking this series nearly as much as i liked the Maximum Ride books, but now I see tv at they aren't even really comparable. These books are much more like the Hunger Games or Divergent than Maximum Ride. The cast is incredibly diverse and there's actually some decent and (seemingly) well researched portrayal of various mental illnesses and disorders. I wasn't sure if i'd want to read the rest of these books, but after this one i'm definitely interested z

oh, this one was really not for me. i can see the appeal with fans of the maze runner series, which also was not really my cup of tea. i don't think that the characters and the world was really flushed out to the extent that it could have within the first book and this just kept me really bored. there were many characters to keep track of and they did not feel like they were all under the age of fifteen. i'll read the next installment only because i, once again, bought it full price and i can't let that money just go to waste if i don't read that. i sure hope that i will have some kind of interest in the following book lol.
