    Wellllllll, this was one addictive YA read! A near future dystopian novel. The Arcadia cruise ship has been home to many, they have lived and died on the water for more than 40 years. Ruled by the Coaly’s who work for and support the Federated State. As laws start tightening, rations being cut and Coaly’s on the warpath, something is definitely up. When Esther is forced to save Nik’s life little did she know that she would be dragged into a whole new world of gangs and the rebellion, trying to prevent the ship and its inhabitants being “cleared” and releasing its grip from the Coaly’s.
    A brilliant book told from the point of view of Nik, Esther and Hadley(Head Coaly) that’s perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent. I loved it!
