Lane lives a decent life in the West--she doesn't know what's over the Titan Wall. The Wall is built along the Mississippi River, separating the humans from the feral. A virus turns humans into animals, and although Lane wants to know more, she isn't able to. However, she soon finds out that her dad is a frequent visitor of the East. Why? He's a fetcher--going over the wall to bring back precious artifacts like artwork or photographs. Lane had no idea that her father had told her of his adventures in his bedtime stories, and she handles the East better than she ever would have thought.
Suspend reality and just accept the ride that this book offers. Lane's world is dystopian and dark, but family is still important. Give this to fans of Hunger Games and Divergent. There will be a Book Two, of course.
