  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2015 January #1
    Phaet dreams of a life of scientific work among the greenhouses of the moon's colony, but when her mother is taken away by the government, she opts to join the militia early to save her brother and sister from the slums. There she discovers a strength she did not know and a calling that could tear apart the rigid structure of the colony. Bao's debut owes much to dystopian series like the Hunger Games and Divergent. Phaet is a compelling, "do what needs doing" kind of girl, and her desperation to succeed and secure her family's future is palpable. The military-training scenes are the most interesting part of the book, though readers familiar with military training or structure might require an extra dose of suspension of disbelief. Although the final section is a bit rushed and sacrifices much of the drama of Phaet's discovery of corruption in the colony's government, fans of dystopian series starring powerful girl heroes likely won't mind. Revelations at the end pave the way for a sequel. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
