Title: The Walled CityGenres: YA, Dystopian, Science FictionRelease Date: November 4, 2014
There are three rules in the Walled City: Run fast. Trust no one. Always carry your knife. Right now, my life depends completely on the first. Run, run, run.
Jin, Mei Yee, and Dai all live in the Walled City, a lawless labyrinth run by crime lords and overrun by street gangs. Teens there run drugs or work in brothels—or, like Jin, hide under the radar. But when Dai offers Jin a chance to find her lost sister, Mei Yee, she begins a breathtaking race against the clock to escape the Walled City itself.
The world building intrigues me immensely. I can almost picture it and it looks glorious. Also, how bad ass are the three rules? It sounds like it will start off with a bang and never stops. I'm definitely in!
