2113. In Jenna Strong’s world, ACID – the most brutal, controlling police force in history – rule supreme. No throwaway comment or muttered dissent goes unnoticed – or unpunished. And it was ACID agents who locked Jenna away for life, for a bloody crime she struggles to remember.
The only female inmate in a violent high-security prison, Jenna has learned to survive by any means necessary. And when a mysterious rebel group breaks her out, she must use her strength, speed and skill to stay one step ahead of ACID – and to uncover the truth about what really happened on that dark night two years ago.

This book is AMAZING!!!! Trust me I couldn't stop reading it I finished reading it in just 2 days. It does have swearing in it but who cares its the best book . I hope that one day it will be made into a movie.
No throwaway comment or muttered dissent goes unnoticed, and yet a group of agents (from FREE) can replace the real team (from ACID) at their most high security prison facility.
Let's face it, a totally totalitarian regime has no use for a massive proletariat - they are an inconvenience that need feeding, entertaining and keep agitating for their "rights". Look perhaps at the Saudi regime - a massive Royal Family, funded by the oil wealth and served by expatriate workers and servants - Europeans and Americans to do the management, engineering and academically demanding jobs, South Asians and Filipinos to do the drudge work, all of them shipped "back home" when their contracts, or usefulness, are complete.
Having said that, the story is well told, rewarding the reader for the suspension of disbelief, and keeps you engaged until the (inevitable) happy ending.
