Summary: In the future, humans live in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.

Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they're haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.

My Thoughts: I plan on watching The 100 when it premieres on The CW this fall. I’m excited for it. I watch a lot of tv shows and this is another one to add to the list. So, when I got the chance to read this novel I jumped on it. I also knew if I didn’t read it before the show, I never would get around to it.

We are introduced to a few different teens who have gotten into some sort of trouble and are living in a type of detention facility but its not on earth! Earth has been uninhabitable for many years but the people in charge want to know if its safe to do it again. So, who better to send than a bunch of teens that nobody really cares about and are sentenced to die soon anyway.

A bunch of teens are sent to live on Earth. They aren’t sent with much, just a few basic supplies. The 100 follows the lives of four different people. There are a lot of other people thrown throughout the novel but it mainly focuses from four peoples point of view.

Honestly, that was the confusing part for me. I had trouble keep track of who was who, and their backstory. The writing style is so simple and enjoyable, its a quick read. But the perspectives through me for a loop. They always do. If it involves more than two, than I usually get confused. haha.

I did like reading from each perspective and after a while I wasn't as confused. I liked the story-line, I liked finding out what was happening, and I liked learning all about their feelings. That was the best thing about this one. We actually get to feel what they are feeling. We see things from their points of view, and even to an extent understand why they committed the crimes they did.  This time, I didn’t really have a favorite character. By the time I finished, I was into all their story-lines.

I liked this one enough to watch the show. And I will. And I will be reading any future novels as well just to see what happens.

Overall: I liked this one. I enjoyed it, and it was a fast read. I didn’t fall completely in love with it. I’m hoping maybe the show I will. I’d say this may be more of a 3.5 for me but I still liked it a little more than like I suppose.  Sometimes I think I should have half cupcakes, but who wants to eat half a cupcake, right? That wouldn't be very fun!

Cover: It’s ok. It’s kind of plain. Very white, but I do like how we can see people throughout it. 

What I'd Give It:
