"Oliver's nightmare future lacks a visceral punch, primarily because of the weakness of the world-building. Her America has undergone a seismic shift, but the economic, religious, and cultural ramifications are all but ignored." - Publishers Weekly
"The story bogs down as it revels in romance - Alex is standard-issue perfection - but the book never loses its A Clockwork Orangestyle bite regarding safety versus choice. Grades 9-12." - Booklist
"Starred Review. Strong characters, a vivid portrait of the lives of teens in a repressive society, and nagging questions that can be applied to our world today make this book especially compelling and discussable." - School Library Journal
