That's the least of her problems. Seems the Uppers and Scrubs still distrust each other. The new Committee is going no where. Trella's still not willing to admit Dr. Lamont might in fact be her birthmother. Also it seems others are trying to sabotage any kind of truce. Just when Trella thinks things can't be any worse, she finds something that will make her question her whole existence.
I admit I thought the first book in this series, INSIDE OUT, had a tad bit too much telling of Trella's world. I didn't really have a feel for Trella until the middle of the story. The second book though shows us Trella and her conflicts with not only those around her but her growing attraction to Riley. I liked the dialogue between Trella and Riley. The chemistry between the two of them is more intense and feels very real. One of my favorite characters had to be Dr. Lamont, who Trella still considers a traitor. Then add the mystery on who exactly is behind the explosions and who to trust.
Trella's a strong heroine who's not afraid to battle back. She does get in more than one bloody fight but she refuses to back down. That and her honesty about her whole existence are a big plus in this story.
