The Academie by Amy Joy

ISBN: 9781463692827
Publisher: Self / Indie
Pages: 288

When Allie Thompson graduated, she thought she'd put high school behind her. But when a series of violent outbreaks by teens sends panic surging through the nation, high school is right where Allie finds herself again. Now remolded into what the government calls The Academie, what was once the public school system is now the permanent home of everyone 22 and under.
After a year of college and a lifetime as a model student, Allie doesn't take well to The Academie's militaristic nature or its 16 foot perimeter fences. 

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, it was beautifully written and well thought out. I found The Academie to be a bit like Delirium and Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver as well as Variant by Robison Wells, I would definitely recommend this book! My favourite character was Ruby because of her determination to be at home with her daughter and her caring nature. Allie was also one of my favourite characters because of her rebellious nature and her tenacity. I like the cover, it really compliments the story within.
