I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this book. The book followed White throughout her days. In their colony, only the chosen ones could go to the outside world. She wanted so badly to know what was out there. She yearned for more knowledge and her every day life bored her. Her cousin, Shade, was one of the chosen ones and he would bring back slips of paper with words on them. White didn't know what the words meant but she cherished every slip of paper.
Shade was killed on one of his missions to the outside world and White's whole world turned upside down. She was alone with no family left and she was still filled with curiosity about the outside world. Then White found out how to get to the outside world and her life was filled with meaning again.
White traveled to the outside world. She met a human that was huge. Once she got past her fear, she wanted to know why he was so big and she was so small. This is when she learned about "The Forgotten Ones".
There appears to be a sequel to this book in the works. I have so many questions left after reading this book. Will the Forgotten Ones ever return to the way they were? Can White & Kel overcome their differences? The author can go so many ways with this and I am excited to see what they do with it.
