My Thoughts ~
I will be the first to admit that I was beyond pleasantly surprise about how good this book was. I take that back – it was FANTASTIC! Rite of Rejection is a perfect example of how young adult dystopian fiction should be done.
Rite of Rejection pulled me in with the first chapter and held my attention until the very end. I devoured this story, unable to put it down; believe me I tried, but this one kept creeping into my thoughts, begging for me to finish. This is a story of desperation, hope, love and the desire to change a corrupt system. Ms. Negovetich’s attention to detail and solid writing really drew me into this story and I could picture the entire thing unfolding in my mind. From the filth and stench of the PIT to the desperation of the colony, I could not help but want something better for the characters.
Rite of Rejection has its own unique personality, and I believe fans of dystopian fiction will love it. The ending did leave me with some questions, but overall I finished with a feeling of great satisfaction. If there is a sequel to this awesome story, I will definitely be reading it.
