Writing Style

Straightforward, Lively

A lot of this story is dialogue. The girls have discussions to figure out the next step to ensure their survival. The language is simple, and so are the changes from scene to scene. Bray gives us the footnotes to explain the girls' references so we won't be confused about the world of the book.

But all the extras—the commercials, questionnaires, and the insider scenes of The Corporation, are full of the jokes. They create a feeling of excitement, like you don't know who's going to show up onscreen next.

And oh, does Bray deliver. Two words: British pirates.
