That was awesome.

Rebecca and Cheryl are your average 16 year old girls. Except that they live in a country where once you turn 16 you are forced to attend a ceremony where you are either Accepted as a member of society or Rejected to the PIT because you may or may not have a propensity for crime. At least, those are the reasons that the Cardinal has given for why people are sent to the PIT.

Rebecca believed she had nothing to worry about and would easily get Accepted, but all that changed when the lights on the Machine flashed red indicating that she was to be banished to the PIT. Now forced to live the life of a “criminal” in horrible poverty, Rebecca must figure out how to survive with nothing and no one to help her. That is, until she sees a familiar face also living in the PIT.

Eric was the first one to ask her for a dance at the ceremony and she knew right away that he was perfect for her. Now with Eric by her side and a few of his friends, it seems like maybe life in the PIT won’t be so bad. Or will it?

An awesome dystopian novel, I devoured Rite of Rejection in two sittings because I needed to know what would happen next. The only reason I didn’t give this book a 5 was because some of the main plot points were a little predictable which kind of took me out of the moment. However, this book was still fantastic and I could definitely see it being the start to a series.

Highly recommend!
