I have been slowly working my way though these teen dystopia books and this one falls in the solid middle. The world created is very interesting...and frightening. But there are still so many questions I have about its makeup/ rules. I hope in further books it is explored. Like why was this course necessary...what triggered it. It is still a bit vague. And of course you cant have a Ya book without some romance and boy for the girl to live and die for. I guess with the premiss this could not be avoided. I though..liked the worldbuilding and intrigue.
