Gated - Amy Christine Parker OVERALL IMPRESSION: I loved this book so much. I've heard some talk of people not liking this book, so I was a little worried going into it, but I ended up loving it. There is a creepy cultish feeling in the begininng of the book, which hooked me right away. I'm fascinated by stories about cultures like the LDS or Amish, people who keep to themselves and have their own set of rules so this book was really interesting to me.

CHARACTERS: I really like Cody. He seems like your everyday average boy, and that's refreshing to read about in young adult novels these days. I also really liked the character of Pioneer. I feel like he plays his role extremely well, even though I don't personally like him, I felt his character was very well done.

COVER: The cover of this book is really creepy. I'm not really sure that it fits with this book though. To me, the cover says haunted ghost story or something along those lines, which this book is not at all.

**I received an ARC of this book from Amazon Vine for my honest review.
