What if everything you knew turned out to be a lie?

Charlotte Walker knows how to live under the rule of The Party. She has managed for 18 years. She helps out her drunken mother and keeps life going at a familiar, steady pace. She doesn’t ask questions, even though she has many of them in her heart.

Fostino Sanchez knows how to live under the rule of The Party, too. For 19 years, he’s worked to be the perfect Party member. He knows what must be done to keep Maxwell Cooper in power, and how find the The Undesirables that threaten to take away everything that matters.

As the months go by, what matters most to Fostino is Charlotte Walker.

While their love blooms, danger comes to Charlotte and Fostino’s small hometown of Harrison Corners, OH. Threats they never knew existed could take away all that they care about. And just when these two teens think they know what will come next, Charlotte learns the truth about a secret she has long suspected.

What Charlotte finds out changes everything.


THE UNDESIRABLE is Charlotte Walker’s story, from her point of view. It is a thrilling, suspenseful tale of love, curiosity, adversity, and maturity against the backdrop of a futuristic war.

Should Charlotte trust Fostino with what she knows? Can she trust anyone? Will she find it in herself to rise up against terrible odds? What if the ultimate Undesirable is her?
HEHE, it's another ARC Review. I read the book back in January but since I'm oh-so-awesome at time management, it took me this long to actually write up the review.

So this book is basically another dystopian fiction with a girl on the run. I've read stories like this before but I hesitate to call it typical. I think it had it's difference to other dystopian fictions but I didn't really see a striking difference that made a major mark in lit.

Basically what's going on is that in the future, everything's decided for us and the Earth is kind of set back. There are power hungry tyrants who want to keep control of the world, so a girl Charlotte must save the world... whoop de doo. I really didn't like that part, it was far to easy to think about which made it somewhat unoriginal.

This is going to be a short review but what I liked about it was connecting to the main character. She was one of those character that progressed throught the novel. If you asked her if she was some gun slinging badass, she'd be like "hell naw" but at the end, it's like "load me up!"

I really liked that, but I didn't like the main love interest. Fostino. I found him really useless and it was like Charlotte was the protector and Fostino couldn't do anything. It kind of pissed me off and at the same time, made me proud?
