Obedience is a virtue. And the truth must be whispered.
A few among the subservient population strive for something more. Son of a powerful Equal senator and brutalized for his beliefs, 22-year-old Hurley Vance desires to be his own person. After saving a woman from a Watcher’s violent cruelty, Hurley becomes a symbol. Evangeline Street, an opposition leader who rejects State enslavement, asks that he join a rebellious countermovement based in Building 86.
Now, Hurley must choose between a safe life of government protection or one of danger and revolution.

I received an ebook version of this book from a LibraryThing Giveaway. This was an intelligently written, very compelling dystopia story. I enjoyed reading it quite a bit. I hope that there is a sequel to it some day to pick up where this story leaves off. I would definitely like to read more about the characters and find out what happens next.
Usually lead characters are poor or downtrodden people who aspire to help the cause of the common people. However Hurley Vance has grown up in a priveleged position and would continue to live in a luxurious manner if he would just stop questioning things. This is not something that he wants to do even though he is advised to by his father and many others. As soon as I started reading this book I could barely put it down. It was very well written and I would happily recommend it.
