One of Us

We rated this book:


The book One of Us follows K Child, an orphan citizen girl, as she gets hired by the police to infiltrate a place called “The Institute” as Verity Nekton, a brotherhood girl who was raised by citizens. Inside, she’s supposed to find a hidden sleeper cell of terrorists and report them back to Oskar, the policeman who hired her. But as she continues to spy on the students, she starts to make friends like Serafina and Greg, and meets people who treat her warmly, as part of the group. After a while, she starts to doubt that there’s actually a terrorist group at all, and starts to question the police’s motives.

This book was very compelling, especially when reading about K’s hardships, like her first day at The Institute. I could empathize with the characters, especially K, as she felt guilty for spying on and lying to all her friends, the ones who took her in and treated her fairly even though she was different. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries, romances, or thrillers, since this book is a well written mixture of all three.
