Lily Atwood is the daughter of a presidential nominee in a US devastated and changed by a major war. In this new world people fear a group known as The Revealed who come and kidnap eighteen year olds. No one knows the reason for the disappearances and do all they can to keep their children from being taken. Lily is now 18 and hates not being able to leave her home, and rebels and pushes against the walls. 

Of course, being who she is, you know things are not going to be what they seem.

I enjoyed this book. It started off strong, grabbing my attention with the black notes and the constant escape attempts. And it kept my interest to the end. There is a love interest in here that I, personally, feel was unnecessary. I always like when the female protagonist doesn't need a boy. May be just me. I bet others will like Kai and feel Lily's affections for him are real. Her constant longing for him after being with him maybe a week seemed forced. She was lonely, I guess. 
I am looking forward to reading the next book. I like how this chapter ended.  Some story lines were brought to an end, some were left open. All in all, a fun entertaining summer read.
