Synopsis - from goodreads
2113. In Jenna Strong’s world, ACID – the most brutal, controlling police force in history – rule supreme. No throwaway comment or muttered dissent goes unnoticed – or unpunished. And it was ACID agents who locked Jenna away for life, for a bloody crime she struggles to remember.
The only female inmate in a violent high-security prison, Jenna has learned to survive by any means necessary. And when a mysterious rebel group breaks her out, she must use her strength, speed and skill to stay one step ahead of ACID – and to uncover the truth about what really happened on that dark night two years ago.
Just read that synopsis and look at that cover! How could you not want to read this? I love books that have strong, tough heroines and i am also crazy for dystopian books. A dystopian world ran by a prutal police force, rebels and if the cover and synopsis is anything to go by (as well as what the author has said), a heroine who is seriously kick-ass. This book simply sounds perfect for me, i think this could easily be a 2013 favourite if it is a good as it sounds. I may go slightly crazy waiting for the release of this in April.
