I was not immediately pulled into this story but I did connect with Steven as a parent and his thought processes. I overthink just about everything so I could fully connect with that part of him. That was the extent of my connection. The story itself was quite riveting and I'm sure the ending was supposed to be "What the heck happened moment?" but I was just confused. It was quite a jaw-dropping twist, but I couldn't see its connection other than the fact that the military looked foolish. The story is politically dystopian and true to the genre. There were a couple of errors but nothing that distracted from the words themselves as a whole. I honestly would have liked more of a story and more background. It all felt so straight and narrow with no room to connect further with the plot. I would recommend it for those who devour dystopian stories and I'd give it 3 1/2 stars. So, I rolled it to a 4.
