In the not-so-distant future, workers are forcibly drafted into their fields, and the Labor party chooses Silas. Because he's new, strong, and trained for Command, everyone wants to use him for their own purposes. But when a strange girl shows him that he can choose his own destiny, Silas must make his first real decision---which side he will fight for.

Westover is a fast-paced, exciting, gripping YA dystopian novel. Westover keeps
the reader off balance so that, like his hero, we're never quite sure where the
truth lies. The resourceful and courageous Silas' journey into a foreign world
is fascinating and compelling. From the first breathtaking race to secure his
place in life to the last page of stunning discovery, this is a book you'll
pick up and be unable to put down. Personally, I can't wait for the sequel.
