CosmicRevenant gave a rating of 3

Reminded me of certain aspects of The Giver and a few other Young Adult novels with dystopian settings that I've read. Written competently, though it seemed just a bit rushed in the second half. Fleshing out the mythos of the world in which Claire exists would further increase the reader's immersion. Not sure if this is what you were going for, but it felt like a teaser for a general concept, rather than a first entry in a series.
I'd like to see a continuation and even a series, if you avoid the cliches of this specific genre. As I said, it has a feel reminiscent of The Giver, but also The Shadow Children series by Margaret Peterson Haddix, and the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness as well.

Interested in seeing where you take the story.
