This book had a really unique premise. I liked all of the different gifts and how the presence of these gifts brought out the worst in people. Ever's situation is very intriguing, the only life that she has known has been locked in a mall with four other kids her age, all with potentially dangerous gifts. The teens have paired off and Fox has formed an almost unhealthy obsession for Ever. Ever is also dependent on the others for sight. Ever and Fox's relationship added another layer of danger. When the group does make their escape, it is into an almost an impossible version of New York, which they must now try to find their way out of. It had a feeling of Alice in Wonderland and was ruled by a Queen with the power of heart and had buildings that shifted around every night. Through Ever's point of view, I was able to figure out part of the twist pretty early on; however the ending still held a lot of suspense and a chance for the characters to surprise me. I really wanted to know more about this world and the gifts, there wasn't much explanation of how the gifts came to be or how those with the potentially dangerous gifts are controlled.
