The 100 by Kass Morgan
Date Read: September 2014
Genre: Dystopian, YA
In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.
Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again

Read It File It Review: Overall The 100 by Kass Morgan had the makings of a strong story but just didn’t quite “wow” me. I am not sure if it was the multiple POV’s (each chapter) or the time jumps (backstories) that kept pulling me out of the story but I just couldn’t stay interested. I loved the world and concept because they were unique, gritty, and full of potential. If the last couple of chapters were anything to go by then the next book should be far more compelling. I will probably stick with this series (at least through the next one) to find out what happens.
