Rating: ☆ ☆ ☆

Summary from Goodreads:

In the future there is no disease. There is no war. There is no discontent. All citizens are complacent members of the Global Governance. But one summer is about to change everything.

Keeva Tee just turned fifteen. All of her dreams are about to come true. She s about to make the trip to Monarch Camp to be imprinted with her intended life partner. One day they ll have perfect kids and a perfect life. But in her happy, carefree life in the Ocean Community, something weighs on her mind. She hears whispers about anomalies citizens who can t be imprinted. No one knows what happens to them, but they never seem to come back.

When Keeva arrives at Monarch Camp, her worst nightmare becomes a reality she is an anomaly. After imprinting, the people she loves change, and she starts to doubt everything she s ever believed. What if freedom and individuality have been sacrificed for security? And what if the man who solves all the problems is the very man who s created them and what if he isn't a man at all?

When Keeva finds a warning carved under a bunk bed she begins to understand: nonconformity will be punished, dissent is not an option, insurgents will be destroyed.

My Review
Surprising. I'm saying that a lot more these days. Anomalies starts off like a  regular dystopian novel. In this one societies live of technology and penchant for violence leads to the near extinction of the human race and most creatures until one person cam and save the day. Grateful, all defer to him as leader around the world. Only he isn't who he seems to be.

All the characters are written well. I liked how the story flowed. There a twist done along the way. Turns out there are a lit of people who aren't what the seem. Heck turns out that everything from the brink of extinction on isn't what it seems. Scratch that, millenniums aren't what it seemed. The truth is life changing. Yeah, thus was a page turner for real. The only thing I didn't like was how the authors talked about Egypt as if it is separate than Africa. They said something like 'they were in Egypt then went to Africa'. Um...Egypt is in Africa. So it should be 'were in Egypt and went through the rest of Africa. It is a HUGE pet peeve of kine when people act as if Egypt isn't Africa.
