Review: The Academie (Academie #1) by Amy Joy

When Allie Thompson graduated, she thought she'd put high school behind her. But when a series of violent outbreaks by teens sends panic surging through the nation, high school is right where Allie finds herself again. Now remolded into what the government calls The Academie, what was once the public school system is now the permanent home of everyone 22 and under.
After a year of college and a lifetime as a model student, Allie doesn't take well to The Academie's militaristic nature or its 16 foot perimeter fences. Remembering all she's left behind, including the boyfriend she's now years away from seeing again, Allie plummets into depression. But when strange things begin to happen and her brother disappears, Allie realizes she must unravel the mystery that is The Academie--before it's too late.

 I like this book. Not at All what I expected.. The storyline went in a completely different direction than where I saw it going. The only thing I didn't like was the few loose ends that I felt needed tied up. Maybe there will be a sequel to it. That would explain a lot. It's a very worthy read. I actually laughed out loud at this main character and her antics. She is nice and sweet and funny. In the end she was most definitely the "Hero". Once I got into the story, It took me on a wild ride. This would be a good leisure read. A wonderful start for this author.
