Melanie is a high functioning "Hungry" who is really a brilliant child trying her best in school and trying to be a good girl in the eyes of her favorite teacher. When "Junkers" attack, she finds herself outside her protected environment and out into a world that she has never experienced "for real".
I liked this one a lot more than I had anticipated. The premise was intriguing and some of the concepts were really quite clever. The characterization and atmosphere were very well done and while it lagged a bit in the middle, it was still quite entertaining and the ending was perfect for the story line. 3.5 Stars.
