Germany won WWII with their genetically modified soldiers, now the world is split into territories with tight laws and even tighter punishments.
Zara wonders what the world would be like if the Allies had won the war. It probably would peaceful and her mother wouldn't be dead. But she knows this is impossible. In fact if the Nazis found out that she was thinking this she would most likely be sent to a labor camp or even killed.
The thing is, if her uncle would just let her join the alliance, Zara might be the key to bringing down the Fuhrer once and for all. You see, she has a secret (one that she could be killed for) that could allow her to become the symbol the Alliance needs. That is....if the Nazis don't find her first!
The main thing I liked about this book was the what if factor. It makes you thankful to live where you are and really opens your eyes to how lucky we are.
The main thing I didn't like about this book was how gruesome the Nazi's punishments could be. These actually made me cringe a couple times while reading this book.
I would recommend this book to more mature readers due to some extreme violence. (About equal to the Hunger Games)
