What if everything you knew turned out to be a lie?

Charlotte Walker knows how to live under the rule of The Party. She has managed for 18 years. She helps out her drunken mother and keeps life going at a familiar, steady pace. She doesn’t ask questions, even though she has many of them in her heart.

Fostino Sanchez knows how to live under the rule of The Party, too. For 19 years, he’s worked to be the perfect Party member. He knows what must be done to keep Maxwell Cooper in power, and how find the The Undesirables that threaten to take away everything that matters.

As the months go by, what matters most to Fostino is Charlotte Walker.

While their love blooms, danger comes to Charlotte and Fostino’s small hometown of Harrison Corners, OH. Threats they never knew existed could take away all that they care about. And just when these two teens think they know what will come next, Charlotte learns the truth about a secret she has long suspected.

What Charlotte finds out changes everything.


THE UNDESIRABLE is Charlotte Walker’s story, from her point of view. It is a thrilling, suspenseful tale of love, curiosity, adversity, and maturity against the backdrop of a futuristic war.

Should Charlotte trust Fostino with what she knows? Can she trust anyone? Will she find it in herself to rise up against terrible odds? What if the ultimate Undesirable is her?

My Thoughts:

If it isn't obvious already per my reviews I am a huge dystopian fan. I  was first really intrigued by the cover of this one and  also the title. I really enjoyed this book, it was a fast and engaging read and time flew by while I was enjoying this book.

Charlotte lives in Harrison Corners, OH with her alcoholic mom  in the U.S. that is very different from the one  we know now. The U.S. is at war with Canada over oil and the government is controlled by The Party.  Everything changes when the Party comes to Charlotte's town. Her town is now going to be a part of the war effort, and every person who qualifies is going to be working in a factory every day making shirts. They are forced to give up all of their electronic possessions although none of them work anymore. Charlotte has had a crush on Fostino Sanchez for years, although she has never talked to him and only gazed at him from a far while passing him in the hallways at school. 

Charlotte was a great main character, she was strong on the outside but, on the inside she was freaking out just like every other person. The book moved fast and there was plenty of action but, one of the things that disappointed me was that at the end of the book  it never felt like enough happened in the plot for me. But, I still really enjoyed the dystopian world, learning about how the government worked and I am definitely wanting the next book to find out even more about the world that Celi created it was definitely a memorable one for a huge dystopian fan like me. I enjoyed reading about Fostino and Charlottes budding relationship that was a little bit rushed but, still  believable. 

Overall, this book was a quick and fast paced dystopian, it was a great beginning that had me dying to read the next book and find out what is going to happen next to Charlotte and Fostino, definitely check it out if you are a dystopian fan.
