Those are some facts about the book, but you should also read it because it has good details, some drama, and some adventure mixed in with.
I recommend you read this book because it is really good, and it is about the future in some way, but it isn't the kind of future that you want.
Plus it has a happy ending to it, after it takes you for a long good, drama filled ride.
That is why you should read this book.
