Overview

14-year-old Victoria Slade suffers from serious Rapunzel-in-the-tower syndrome. It's 2025, and she's stuck in one of the only convents left in Gracelia with a technology hating nun for an adoptive mother, a boy crazy 17-year-old for a sister, and a prayer cup full of questions about what goes on outside of the convent--she wouldn't know, she hardly ever gets to leave.

When important city officials begin dying under mysterious circumstances, Victoria begins her own investigation, so they sneaking into the city to find clues. Exploring the city opens Victoria's eyes to the world around her that she's been missing out on---food, technology, and to her (secret) relief, guys.

When the clues she discovers lead them back to the place they suspected the least---the convent---Victoria finds herself drawn into a high-stakes deadly assassin group, The Other Sisterhood, that is aiming to completely revamp the political landscape.

And to make matters worse, for threatening to expose them, Victoria is forced to join The Other Sisterhood and help them carry out their biggest job yet---to assassinate the son of the sitting King.

    Sucked

    I would give this zero stars if I could. There were so many things wrong with it. There was no interesting plot line, it was completely unrealistic, too much detail at some points then not enough in others, bad narration and you could not connect with the main character. Not worth the time

    I had the chance to read this book a while ago. I will say, that it was definitely not what I was expecting. I agree with the other reviewers that it was a bit weird, and unrealistic. But I didn't hate that.
    I thought it was interesting to see a YA novel deal with extremist religious groups. Definitely unusual, but it wasn't bad.
