There are three rules in the Walled City: Run fast. Trust no one. Always carry your knife. Right now, my life depends completely on the first. Run, run, run.My Thoughts: Did you see that cover? That amazing synopsis? Yeah. Add this to your TBR pile right now! I'm a sucker for Asian culture and find it underrepresented in YA Lit. I can't wait for this one to released.
Jin, Mei Yee, and Dai all live in the Walled City, a lawless labyrinth run by crime lords and overrun by street gangs. Teens there run drugs or work in brothels—or, like Jin, hide under the radar. But when Dai offers Jin a chance to find her lost sister, Mei Yee, she begins a breathtaking race against the clock to escape the Walled City itself.
