The Cage by Megan Shepherd

Goodreads Blurb:
When Cora Mason wakes in a desert, she doesn't know where she is or who put her there. As she explores, she finds an impossible mix of environments—tundra next to desert, farm next to jungle, and a strangely empty town cobbled together from different cultures—all watched over by eerie black windows. And she isn't alone.

Four other teenagers have also been taken: a beautiful model, a tattooed smuggler, a secretive genius, and an army brat who seems to know too much about Cora's past. None of them have a clue as to what happened, and all of them have secrets. As the unlikely group struggles for leadership, they slowly start to trust each other. But when their mysterious jailer—a handsome young guard called Cassian—appears, they realize that their captivity is more terrifying than they could ever imagine: Their captors aren't from Earth. And they have taken the five teenagers for an otherworldly zoo—where the exhibits are humans.

Things I liked:
1) Cora- She did have few flaws but still I found her to be the character that I most related to. She was more level headed then the other characters I think.

2) The writing of this was really mysterious. There were a few shocking factors in this book that I really didn't expect.

3) I liked getting to know the other characters as well. They all had very different stories and you could tell who was who(even if you didn't read the name on the top).

Things I was not fond of:

1) I didn't like how Cora kept obsessing over Cassian. I understand why she did it but still it really bothered me.

2) The ending- This didn't bother me quite as much since the second book I already have but if I didn't I would have been extra upset.

My rating: ♥♥♥♥♥
