Summary: A society grows raising everyone to be the exact same through strict rules and regulations.

Strengths: The book is something that the average student is not use to, so I think once you start reading you want to continue reading to see what is going to happen next. I believe that once you finish reading this book you really appreciate you individuality and being yourself, but mainly being able to freely be who you are.

Concerns: There are In some part the book is hard to understand because these societies are so different than the one we live in. The book could bring up difficult questions that may be hard to answer.

Classroom Use: This book could be offered in the classroom as a book for students to choose. It also could be a book to use in a book discussion. I think this book would bring up a lot of questions and thoughts from students, so it would be a great opportunity to really pick apart a book.
