Description: Me? A Leader? Okay, I did prove that there's more to Inside than we knew. That a whole world exists beyond this cube we live in. And finding that led to a major rebellion - between worker scrubs like me and the snobby uppers who rule our world. Make that ruled. Because of me, we're free. I thought that meant I was off the hook, and could go off on my own again - while still touching base with Riley, of course. He's the one upper I think I can trust. But then we learned that there's outside and then there is Outside. And something from Outside wants In.

I Give This ...

She's successfully done it.  I've read everything written by Maria Snyder and everything has earned a 4 star or higher.  I will read anything she writes until she proves me wrong!

I loved this sequel to Inside Out!  The story manages to have something new while remaining true to the characters introduced in book 1.  Since the characters live in a box in the middle of nothing, I was really curious were this story could possibly go.   I was surprised and what the new thing was that was threatening to destroy Inside!

I really liked how Trella progresses in the story.  She didn't mean to start the revolution and she definitely wasn't looking to be it's face.  Why in the world would she want to be it's leader now.  I really wanted to shake and make her see how much good she could do for Inside as a whole.  But, she a teenager.  What teen really wants that much responsibility at such a young age.

I was surprised at how many twists and turns the story takes.  For the longest time I had no idea who to trust.   Trella makes some tough choices that really alienate her from the people who helped in the first book.  I wasn't surprised that so many people could turn on her.  I was glad to see her finally step up the plate and fight for the people of Inside and for herself!

  1. I'm also a big Maria V. Snyder fan so I will definitely have to check out this series. The store I work at only carries the second in the series so I will have to hunt down the first! *shakes fist*


I love comments!
