Description

The truth can set her free

For the past two months, Kitty Doe's life has been a lie. Forced to impersonate Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, in a hostile meritocracy on the verge of revolution, Kitty sees her frustration grow as her trust in her fake fiancé cracks, her real boyfriend is forbidden and the Blackcoat rebels she is secretly supporting keep her in the dark more than ever.

But in the midst of discovering that her role in the Hart family may not be as coincidental as she thought, she's accused of treason and is forced to face her greatest fear: Elsewhere. A prison where no one can escape.

As one shocking revelation leads to the next, Kitty learns the hard way that she can trust no one, not even the people she thought were on her side. With her back against the wall, Kitty wants to believe she'll do whatever it takes to support the rebellion she believes in--but is she prepared to pay the ultimate price?

Review quote

The plot twists and turns, with red herrings and a dynamic pace that will keep readers guessing. With even more political maneuvering, suspense, and romance, fans of the first book will not be disappointed. -School Library Journal

Readers will race through this and count the days until the final book is released. -Booklist

Carter's writing is smart; readers will feel as if they're really in Elsewhere experiencing Kitty's anguish, but these descriptions never take away from the rapid-fire plot. If you loved The Hunger Games and want your next dystopian YA fix, try this series now. -RT Book Review
