MTV.com, when asked who should read this book, said, "Anyone who wants a challenge...This plot is so twisty, I had to read the last chapter twice before I could believe what happened."

Publishers Weekly said, "Most [readers] will be drawn in by the love triangle, revelations about Vi and her family, and a dark twist ending that maintains the faintest glimmer of hope."

The Bulletin said, ""[T]he super-cool, surprise ending...stay sentirely true to the plot....[T]he romantic tribulations...may serve to draw romance fans into the sci-fi side....[T]he setting is developed with care and detail, making for a vividly drawn alternative world. Fans of Matched...and other recent romantically focused additions to the dystopiansub-genre may wish to add this to their reading list."
