Meh. Faith is a kind of boring teenager, living in what's left of a boring town after most of society has moved into mega-cities. She goes to a mostly boring school, and not much exciting happens. She discovers that she's telekinetic, a slightly less boring boy named Dylan teaches her how to use this power, and they have a big fight with the kids who we knew were villains basically when we first met them.
This isn't bad, but it's also not that good. In a blurb on the cover, Pittacus Lore (!) said it had "pulse-pounding action"? Maybe in the last couple chapters, but otherwise it was pretty slow.

If the world ended up this way... It would be cool but scary at the same time!

Like what Reality_Escaper said, nothing interesting in the way of action was in the beginning; just foundational knowledge for the setting and story. I hope the subsequent books are better.

The overall plot is intriguing but it wasn’t until you were well into the book that it began to pick up speed. Much of the book was build-up and providing a foundation for the trilogy. Hopefully with that out of the way, the rest of the books will be faster paced and action filled. I look forward to the rest of this series and what happens to the characters.

Fairly interesting story, very annoying MC who is convinced she always knows what's best (though she's proven wrong time and again) and does whatever she wants regardless of what anyone else might say. Typical dark, mysterious hero/boy, who seemed like the same dark, mysterious boy featured in a hundred other books - disappointing lack of depth to his character. Honestly, I thought the best part of this book was the cover, which is gorgeous, but you don't get the meaning until close to the end. This is the first book of a trilogy, but I don't know that I'm interested enough to read the other two books.
