Synopsis(from cover of book):
     Incarceron is a prison unlike any other:its inmates live not only in cells, but also in metal forests, dilapidated cities, and unbounded wilderness. The prison has been sealed for centuries, and only one man legend says, has ever escaped.
     Finn, a seventeen-year-old prisoner, can't remember his childhood and believes he came from outside Incarceron. He's going to escape, even though most inmates don't even believe that Outside even exists. And then finds a crystal key and through it, a girl named Claudia.
     Claudia claims to live Outside-her father is the Warden of Incarceron and she's doomed to an arranged marriage. If she helps Finn escape, she will need his help in return.
     But they don't realize there is more to Incarceron then meets the eye. Escape will take their greatest courage, and cost far more than they know.

My review:
      An inventive book with a fresh concept, I enjoyed the variety that it offered. I loved the fact that she didn't let anything limit her. She allowed concepts to flow freely, and while her book is not the best I have ever read, it was well worth my time.
      This book is a clean, enjoyable book, set far off into the future. So far that they pretend to be in the past, so that they can diminish problems. I enjoyed the characters and the lopsided growth or realization of relationship. Her characters were real they were the kind you believe could exist in life. A rebellious teenager, and one tied to his friends and declared brother.
      Creativity is rampant in this novel, combining both future and past to create the opposite of steam-punk. A world full of technology, but those in it have reverted into the past by law. A read that will draw you in, into the very mind of Incarceron.

My rating:
     4 stars
Profanity: None
Sexuality: Very mild
Violence: Mild
Drugs and alcohol: None
