Selected (The Zaratan Trilogy # 1) by Evelyn Lederman (Review)

    The world has been invaded by aliens, and they demand one thing, children in their young teen years. The world must comply or be destroyed. Kara is one of the selected children to be taken, along with her is her neighbour and long time crush, Matt. Together, they are thrown into a new world of aliens and hard testing that could very well be deadly. As they fight to survive, they bond with the other children around them and with each other, and Kara is singled out by their captor aliens for unknown reasons.
     Not bad, not bad at all. The story telling in Selected was engaging and action packed enough to captivate the readers. Kara and Matt were pretty developed characters and they were refreshing in how honourable and kind they were. They personified a lot of the best traits in humans, and were quite easy to like. My only problems with this novel is that a) humans are naturally rebellious, and there was little to no rebellion of any sort in this novel and b) there was not a true resolution to this novel that could leave the readers with any sort of lesson or moral. Overall, I enjoyed Selected and give it the rating of THREE AND A HALF STARS OUT OF FIVE!!!
