My Feelings:

Keep Your Head Down.
Don't Get Noticed.
Or Else.

I'm Trella. I'm a scrub. A nobody. One of thousands who work the lower levels, keeping Inside clean for the Uppers. I've got one friend, do my job and try to avoid the Pop Cops. So what if I occasionally use the pipes to sneak around the Upper levels? The only neck at risk is my own…until I accidentally start a rebellion and become the go-to girl to lead a revolution.

My Review:
Is this Teen Dystopian at it’s best? I might say full mouthy YES. Okay, so I have to admit that I have not read a lot in this genre, but let me tell you this was good.

Trella is a young girl who is very much a loner, stubborn, sarcastic and determined to find a way out of “the Inside”. I liked Trella. I liked that she didn’t let anyone fool her and that she stayed focused on her task.

Trella is not the only character I enjoyed reading about, I also really liked Riley. He is way too sweet and so caring about Trella. Just the guy she needs.

Reading about Trella scoping around in the cubicles made me dizzy. I also could not see a clear picture of it in my mind. It was too mathematic and that was not my best subject at high school.

The story has a lot of moments where you want to scream at Trella for being so reckless. There was suspense, action and drama involved. I had something different in mind about the outside world and when I found out about what it was, it really made me nauseas. I was dying for some fresh air at that moment.

The ending of the story was unexpected. I thought it would be different. And that’s why I liked the story so much.

Inside Out is a story that is surprising, intriguing and original. A must read for dystopian fans or for any lovers of unique, suspenseful stories.
