Enjoyed this YA novel, particularly the theme that even when one excels within a system of oppression, their success is precarious and they don‘t actually benefit like they want to think they do. Occasionally it‘s hard to see her willfully ignoring the signs of trouble, but that‘s a realistic response to evidence that challenges an established world view.
I really enjoy seeing a Latinx dystopian YA story, and the way the book flips gender roles is interesting. I also particularly liked how gender fluidity is presented. I think this works well as the first of a series but there aren‘t current plans for a sequel and as a standalone the ending was a bit too rushed and open-ended for my taste.
