Publisher's Summary

Most Citizens hold Outcasts in dim regard, but Sima never expected they’d throw her off the planet. 

In 2411, overpopulation has spread a plaque of filthy, congested city to the corners of the Earth. Government has raised corruption to an art form, and no one hears the cries of those left to die in the dark passageways of civilization. Following the End of Nations, people cling to the only division left: social status. 

Since running away from home four years ago, she’s managed to stay a step ahead of death - or worse. At 16, she’s getting too old to survive from begging, despite her best effort to pretend she’s younger. Worse, the sidewalks teem with little kids edging in on her turf, monopolizing Citizens’ charity with their wide, pleading eyes and genuine innocence. 

A chance meeting with suspiciously nice cops leaves her more confused than ever. Between deadly gangs, unforgiving security forces, and a terrifying madam eager to exploit a girl her age, merely getting older is the biggest threat to her life. With no good choice to make, she risks the least of three evils. 

Sima thought her life on Earth had been dangerous....

She hasn’t seen anything yet.

It was a fun adventure

I was sucked in at the beginning of the story, not knowing which way the protagonist would go. I felt it had dropped here and there towards the later half of the book but it was worth the read.

I actually really enjoyed this...but

The first third of the book is great, it sets up a dystopic world that feels real and gives it a unique perspective from the perspective of homeless children.

Sema is immediately relatable, sympathetic and complex. Her backstory effortlessly conveys her worldview and the difficult choices she is on the cusp of making.

The issue I had was when the book moves on (no spoilers) there's a lot of reputation of the situation she finds herself in and there isn't a lot of tension. I know the story is more about Sema coming to terms with herself and growing as a person, but essentially having the same thing happen on a day by day basis for a good portion of the book just took the edge off the opening which had elements of real danger. I never felt she was in as much peril after that.

But I still finished the book so it's not a huge problem.
