3.5 stars. I found the story very absorbing and I enjoyed the majority of it. My problems came with Day's chapters. I liked him as a character but his thoughts just didn't ring male to me. If the text were not different colors and labeled June or Day I'm not sure I would know which character I was following. I do look forward to the second book and will read it. I do recommend this book. Any problems I had (Day too perfect, no idea why the US is the way it is) I think will be addressed in later books.
