An epic journey from the depths of outer space to a wild, futuristic Earth.
In 3010, humanity lives in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland... before it's too late.
Now a hundred juvenile delinquents are sent on a high-stakes mission to re-colonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community and to get over their dark pasts. In order to survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.

I found The 100 a rapid and enjoyable read - as a new entry into the Young Adult dystopia genre, this is an adventurous page-turner with plenty of action and even some romance...
