Release Date: November 15, 2011
In the violent country of Ludania, the language you speak determines what class you are, and there are harsh punishments if you forget your place—looking a member of a higher class in the eye can result in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina (Charlie for short) can understand all languages, a dangerous ability she’s been hiding her whole life. Her only place of release is the drug-filled underground club scene, where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. There, she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy who speaks a language she’s never heard, and her secret is almost exposed. Through a series of violent upheavals, it becomes clear that Charlie herself is the key to forcing out the oppressive power structure of her kingdom….
Summary taken from Goodreads.
Oh boy, am I excited for this book! It sounds amazing! I think this is a wonderful take on a dystopian society. I mean different languages representing the social classes just sounds brilliant! I've also heard great things about Kimberly Derting and her debut series, the Body Finder. I haven't read them myself yet, but I'm definitely looking forward to doing so :)
