Summary from Goodreads:
Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided...by
your future self.
It's Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else,
she's eagerly awaiting her vision―a
memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into
the person they're meant to be. A world-
class swimmer. A renowned scientist.
Or in Callie's case, a criminal.
In her vision, she sees herself murdering her beloved -- and gifted --
younger sister. Before she
can process what it means, Callie is arrested, treated viciously,
and placed in Limbo―a prison
for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood
crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years,
she escapes this hellish prison. But on the run from her future,
as well as the government, Callie
sets in motion a chain of events
that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the
biggest threat of all—Callie, herself.
Pintip Dunn introduces us into a world which was very interesting and carried elements of romance, action and adventure. Callie and every other teen in her city get to know their path in life through future glimpses they recieve on their birthday. Thier future is pre-destined and they get to know who they will become.
But when Callie receives a future she didn't expect then she will find herself fighting for her sister's life as also he own and the love she harbors for her friend.
Part "Divergent" part "Minority Report" this book delives all the elements anyone expects on a dystopian novel with a strong heroine who loves and want to protect her family.
