The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies - humans with extraordinary abilities - who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone...except the villains they once overthrew. Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice - and in Nova. But Nova's allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

This book was definitely entertaining and it definitely had some twists and turns that I didn't expect, however I do believe that this book is definitely setting a scene for the next one. I haven't read the next one yet, however I feel like that's where more of the action will happen that progresses the story forward in a more speedy way. That's not saying that this book isn't good, it is definitely not boring and is super easy to get through, it is fun and entertaining and a very good listen. If you like superheroes you'll like this book and all of the tones at adds in about society.

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: Humanity has conquered all those things and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life - and they are commanded to do so in order to keep the size of the population under control.

These teens must master the "art" of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

For a person who isn't too deep into the romance novel, this was the perfect balance of badassery and love. I want to get so many of the sentences and statements and quotes tattooed on my body, and I don't have any tattoos. So that's how great at this was and beautiful the imagery was. Honestly this was a beautiful story and one of my top favorites now.

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

This book spoke mountains to me. I believe that everybody should read this, and then they should be in high schools everywhere. If you want to genuinely be a person who says that they are willing to see all sides of things in the face of societal turmoil, racism, issues in the world today, or consider yourself an activist, this book is a must-read. this book is a must-read especially if you don't see things in this world today that are wrong comma because this book really shows the minority voice and how life is more than just set in stone, that there's information that people aren't willing to hear but MUST be heard, and that even if you're not willing to admit things to yourself it's important to see them and learn from them from an outside view. things don't need to be handled with violence but with words and accepting tones and people willing to listen. There's so much I could say that's positive about this book it's incredible. One of my most favorite now and probably will be forever.
