Outside In (Insiders #2) by Maria V. Snyder

My Copy: eBook
Publication Date: January 3, 2011
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Source: Purchased

Me?

A leader?

Okay, I did prove that there’s more to Inside than we knew.

That a whole world exists beyond this cube we live in. And finding that led to a major rebellion—between worker scrubs like me and the snobby uppers who rule our world. Make that ruled. Because of me, we’re free. I thought that meant I was off the hook, and could go off on my own again while still touching base with Riley, of course. He’s the one upper I think I can trust. But then we learned that there’s outside and then there is Outside.

And something from Outside wants In.

My Review

What you’re in for: Sabateurs. Explosions. Discoveries. Romance. Strive for equality. More rebellion.  Sides.  Characters side-switching.

My Thoughts:

Trella seemed less mature in this book than in the first; she acted more like a typical teenager in this one. At least, during the beginning to the middle of the book.  It gets better, though, and she returns to her old self and becomes more like the character she was in the first book.
For most of the book, the right choice didn’t seem very clear cut to me.  This made it hard to root for Trella, because I was constantly questioning whether her choices were the right ones or not.  I wasn’t completely sure she was on the correct side of things until later in the book.
Overall, the series was decent.  I think it would have been better as a stand-alone, if the author could have wrapped up the story in the first book.  I think that would have been a better option, as I kind of couldn’t wait to finish this book once I was about halfway through.  I just got a bit sick of the story.  Maybe I just didn’t care for the story in the sequel as opposed to the story of the first book.  This book’s story was still unique, which I enjoyed.  I just wasn’t as into it as the first.
