The concept and world are great, and I enjoyed reading your story. However, one thing I would like to see would be to slow down the story’s little so we can understand Alex a bit more.

This seems a little bit of a mixture between the popular teen movies/books Divergent, Maze Runner, and Hunger Games. Not bad for a first time!

The story was very well written and I look forward to reading the next chapter. I’m rooting for Alex and hoping she eventually reunites with her entire family. Will her sister ultimately be cast out of the city too?

@evil_emu6 - After the first night outside the city, Alex wakes up and looks toward the rising sun and determines which way is North.

Awesome story! I was hooked from start to finish and absolutely cannot wait for more! One question though: How did Alex figure out which way was north? Love her as a character!

The story was well written. The descriptive details places the reader alongside the main character throughout the journey. It did have a "Divergent" feel to it though, but otherwise well done.

I think the story was really good but you should make sure there are no typos. I really want the next part to this.

Like the other commenters, I cannot wait to see more. I hope more chapter are coming to keep building the plot line. So many cool angles this story can take! What happens to the other ones in the van? What happened to her family? Why was the boy killed when he tried to enter and what was the test they ran when they scanned him? What is the forsaken city like and who lives there? What is the reason for the test and what does it mean? I think this author did a great job of kicking off this story with some good hooks!

Intrigued. Reminiscent of Hunger Games and Divergent. Would like to read more.
