wow, this cover is absolutely awesome!!! and the story is quite interesting:
candor is a model town. all over the place music is playing and feeds the inhabitants with brain-washing messages. the outcome are relaxed parents and well-behaved kids who are willing to learn and never get in trouble. oscar banks, the son of the major, is the best kid of them all - or so the people of candor think. but he knows their secret.
i love dystopian novels! and this one was really cool, especially because it's very contemporary... although i would have liked it to have a little bit more action and drama. the ending was good.
I'm looking forward to read pam bachorz's new novel drought (released in january 2011)!
