Publisher's Summary

An unforgettable tale brimming with suspense, mystery and romance - The Girl Who Dared to Think will thrill fans of The Gender Game, Divergent, and The Hunger Games....

How do you fight an enemy when they're inside your mind?

A gargantuan glass-walled tower looms over a deadly wilderness. They say it's all that's left.

The Tower's survival is humanity's survival, and each must serve it faithfully....

Twenty-year-old Liana Castell must be careful what she thinks. Her life is defined by the number on her wristband - a rating out of 10 awarded based on her usefulness and loyalty to the Tower, and monitored by a device in her skull. A device that reports forbidden thoughts.

Liana is currently a four, the lowest possible acceptable score, and despite her parents' perfect scores of 10, she struggles to increase it. Rebellious ideas come all too easily, and resentfulness seems part of her being. She is an overseer-in-training, but her future will be dark if she cannot raise her worth....

Threes require drug treatment.

Twos are isolated.

Ones disappear.

When Liana's worst nightmare comes to pass and she drops to a three, desperation spurs her down a path few dare to tread. A chance encounter with a cocky young man whose shockingly dissident attitude toward the Tower couldn't possibly have earned him the perfect "10" on his wrist, sets her on a trail to save herself - even at the risk of dropping lower.

Stalking the young man seemed like a simple enough task, but after events take an unexpected twist, Liana finds herself taking a treacherous dive into the darkest depths of the Tower...and the decades' old secrets buried within.

In a society where free thinking can make you a criminal, one girl dares to try....

Narrator killed it for me

I was excited to see this after I finished the gender game series, but I was disappointed in the narration of this book. I'm sure Kristen Leigh has her good books; however, this isn't one of them... every sentence is delivered like a news headline. I thought I could deal with it for the sake of the story but couldn't manage even after it started tying in with the Gender Game. I guess I'll be reading this series rather than listening to it.

very entertaining

Bella Forrest knocks it out of the park again. I can't wait to see where this series goes. I love how it ties in with the Gender Game series.

I loved it.

I really enjoyed this book! I'm hooked! I still like The Gender Games better, but I have no doubt in time these characters will grow on me =) Thanks for another awesome series, and I love that it's apart of The Gender Games world.

Great book

I gave 4 stars because the reader was hard to get use to at first. She sounded like she was telling the news and at first it was really annoying but she eventually grew on me and I hope she returns to read the other 3 books in this series. But the book turned out to be awesome! I’ve listened to the gender wars series and was excited to find there was another series about the tower. So get past the first hour or two and you will enjoy this book. Really good book can’t wait until the other 3 books come to audible Hopefully this happens sooner rather then later.

Couldn't finish it.

I wish they picked a better narrator. She just dragged on the dialog it was too slow. I had a pretty go idea on how the store was, but the narrator drive me insane.

attention keeper!

I listen to over 20 audio books per year but early give a review. it is tempting to think this is standard dystopian fare, but something about it grabs your attention and won't let go. At first, the narrator seems stiff, but it doesn't take long to really warm up to her delivery. Worth the credit!

Brilliant

Another start to a action based , story. It makes you think, what would you do if your moods or thoughts made your number drop. Where when you reach 3 you need to be worried , because if you reach 1 you could just disappear. Loved listening to this first installment and am deeply disappointed that the next installment is not yet on audible so will have to wait and hope its soon, although the kindle book format is out there now . Bella has done it again , brilliant
