Oscar Banks it the kid everyone wants to be like and the kid every parent wants their kid to be like.  Oscar’s father is the founder of Candor, Florida.  People bring their children to this city because they want kids like Oscar.  Oscar has a secret though.  He knows the music has subliminal messages that make the children follow all of the rules.  He helps rich kids escape before it is too late.  When rebellious Nia comes to Candor, Osacar finds himself strangely attracted to her bad girl image.  She knows what is going on.  Oscar must decide whether he will help her escape or let her become one of the numbers. 

This book had a lot of twists and turns that made me love it.  It has already started making the rounds in the classroom and the list of names who want the book is growing.  I thought about the old movie ‘The Stepford Wives’ as I read this book.  I didn’t end the way I thought it would.  I would like to see a sequel to this book that tells us what happens to Nia.  I look forward to a lot of good books by this author.
