The Other Side of the Island - Allegra Goodman What an interesting premise! Both thought & question provoking. It contains elements of other dystopian novels, but has it's own, well-paced plot. It was interesting to see Honor develop, though some of the people were shadowy around here. We never really get inside her parents' heads, but then, most parents are probably somewhat of a mystery to children in their pre-teen/early teen years. Very glad to have picked this up.
