After reading so many positive reviews about this book I had really high expectations. It was good and I liked it, but it wasn't as great as I was expecting/hoping. It definitely reminded me of The Giver but it wasn't as good. I don't know if it's meant to be the first in a series or not, but I almost feel like I need to know more about The Society and why it was created. It seems as though it was created to help eradicate disease, death, and unfairness/unhappiness, but what events really triggered it's creation? Also, I really didn't like Cassia and Ky. I liked Xander better. I had a hard time caring about her feelings for Ky.
