The year is 2019. The Watchers maintain a state of constant surveillance: guns are outlawed, media is censored, and unmanned drones patrol the skies. Derrion Parsing is a high school senior and the son of an ex-Army Ranger. Unlike his classmates, he has access to information from the time before the Invisible War, when the government shut down the Internet, reformatting into a propaganda tool. When Derrion attempts to use this information as part of a school project, he awakens to his worst nightmare.







*I received a free copy in Exchange for an honest review*

Let me start by saying that if you’re looking for an excellent dystopian novel this might be the book for you.

Things I liked.

-It wasn’t so far into the future; it actually takes place five years from now.

-Derrion knew from the start that the way his government worked is not right. I hate it when the main 
character has to fall in love to see that things are wrong but not in this case; Derrion actually thinks for himself and is very observant of the things going around him

-The ending. I won’t go into details but it was something I wasn’t expecting

Things I didn’t like

-Sometimes it felt like I was reading a contemporary young adult novel instead a dystopian novel

-It was slow at times.

In the end I can say that this is a very good book not my favorite but a great read that I would recommend to many people.
