The Haven

15737583Goodreads Synopsis:    For the teens at The Haven, the outside world, just beyond the towering stone wall that surrounds the premises, is a dangerous unknown. It has always been this way, ever since the hospital was established in the year 2020. But The Haven is more than just a hospital; it is their home. It is all they know. Everything is strictly monitored: education, exercise, food, and rest. The rules must be followed to keep the children healthy, to help control the Disease that has cast them as Terminals, the Disease that claims limbs and lungs—and memories. 

But Shiloh is different; she remembers everything. Gideon is different, too. He dreams of a cure, of rebellion against the status quo. What if everything they’ve been told is a lie? What if The Haven is not the safe place it claims to be? And what will happen if Shiloh starts asking dangerous questions?

My Thoughts:

-    The whole concept of this book is exactly like The Island. I'm a tad disappointed this wasn't an original idea. 

-    The book moved a little slow, but it kept my interest.

-    I liked the characters. It was fun to get inside of Shiloh's head. She experienced so many new feelings.

-    I wish there had been a little more to the ending. I don't want to spoil anything, but I would have liked to see what happens to certain characters, and how certain things go down. Hopefully the truth gets out and the company goes down.

-    I wish there had been a little more about some of the instructors in the facility. They played minor roles, but apparently some of them were scheming.

-    Overall, this book was okay, but it doesn't really stand out.
