Renegade by J.A. Souders
*Release Date: November 13th, 2012*

Publisher: Tor Teen

Since the age of three, sixteen-year-old Evelyn Winters has been trained to be Daughter of the People in the underwater utopia known as Elysium. Selected from hundreds of children for her ideal genes all her life she’s thought that everything was perfect; her world. Her people. The Law.

But when Gavin Hunter, a Surface Dweller, accidentally stumbles into their secluded little world, she’s forced to come to a startling realization: everything she knows is a lie. Her memories have been altered. Her mind and body aren’t under her own control. And the person she knows as Mother is a monster.

Together with Gavin she plans her escape, only to learn that her own mind is a ticking time bomb... and Mother has one last secret that will destroy them all.

This book had me at "underwater utopia". I am so excited to see the world that J.A. has created for this story and I can't wait to find out all of the ways it isn't what Evelyn has always thought it was. I'm also a huge fan of stories where the main character can't remember or doesn't have her own memories. I think it's so cool to read about their path back to remembering who they really are. Renegade sounds so original and has so much great story potential. I can't wait to read it :0)
