A leader?

Okay, I did prove that there's more to Inside than we knew.

That a whole world exists beyond this cube we live in. And finding that led to a major rebellion—between worker scrubs like me and the snobby uppers who rule our world. Make that ruled. Because of me, we're free. I thought that meant I was off the hook, and could go off on my own again—while still touching base with Riley, of course. He's the one upper I think I can trust. But then we learned that there's outside and then there is Outside.

And something from Outside wants In.

My Thoughts:

A great sequel to Inside out! Action galore. Everywhere you turn in this book is some sort of action and you're likely to find Trella smack dab in the middle of it. Trella is an interesting character. One minute she seems all vulnerable and a split second later, she's rushing headfirst into some sort of dangerous situation. I do think Trella grew quite a bit as a character in this book. Maybe even learned to lean on others a tiny bit.

Last book you had a take over from the inside and this time around it was a bit different. The outside wanted in and they weren't above using whatever means necessary to achieve their goal. Like I said action at every corner of this book. You've got good guys and bad guys, never fully knowing who you can trust. All kinds of sabotage to contend with and embedded in all of the action you have a family and friends gathering, growing and healing.

If you enjoyed the first book, I'd definitely recommend this one and if you haven't read the first one, you should give it a shot. Maria has great story telling in her blood.

I loved all of the action in this book and seeing Trella's character growth. I also thought Snyder did a good job connecting to the first book and expanding on the world created there. If you have a chance, check out my review.
