“Sometime in the future, a lonely, windswept island is populated solely by women. Among these women is a group of teenaged Trackers—expert equestrians and archers—whose job is to protect their shores from the enemy. The enemy, they’ve been told, is men. When these girls come upon a partially buried home from the distant past, they are fascinated by the strange objects—high-heeled shoes, teen magazines, make-up—found there. What are they to make of these mysterious things? And what does it mean for their strict society where friendship is forbidden and rules must be obeyed—at all costs?” – Goodreads

My Opinion: This was a book about a girl named Kellar and how she lives in a place where no men exist. When I picked this book up I thought that this would be an awesome idea and the book sounded amazing. I still think that the book was good, just that it wasn’t what I thought it would be.
The woman that was in control seemed shady and the women that listened to her seemed power hunger. And Kellar and her colleagues at a school to become Trackers were caught in between. However, Kellar is very observant and sees almost everything that is happening. And this catches the attentions of the powerful, and she becomes chosen.
In the book I think that Laing is my favorite character because of her belief and herself and how she lives in the present. Kellar does seem like a thinker, because of her observations of everything and she seems like a strong character. I wish that something more happened in the book more action or something so keep the characters’ convictions alive longer.

Overall: 3.5 out of 5
