1.Good for tweens/younger teens
This book is an easy read for adults and fairly tame, compared to other popular dystopian YA fiction out there. Other than the relatively mild violence, there is little for the average parent to worry about. There is a little romance, but nothing more than attraction and a kiss or two. There are no "big" swear words. It was a bit simplistic for my more mature taste, but I can see why the tweens love it. I would definitely let my 10 year old read it.
2. This one of the best books I have ever read!
The Republic is like the government in the book.
a person who is fleeing, from prosecution, intolerable circumstances, etc.; a runaway:
