Delaney Escott lives in a world where popularity reigns supreme. If you want to be noticed, social status is everything. The government is run by the Superiors: a very exclusive group of individuals who are virtually flawless. They are smarter than us and stronger than us, and to join their ranks is the highest honor. The Superiors pay an annual visit to the top schools in the nation and evaluate the students, choosing one boy and one girl - the most Popular in the school - to go the Capitol and train for Superiority. Delaney thinks that she's the only one indifferent to (and perhaps even suspicious of) the Superiors, until Caleb Payne, the most popular boy in school, approaches her with a request. He has a task for her, one that he believes she is uniquely capable of completing. And as she helps him, Delaney discovers that the government is hiding many secrets - and that the truth of the Superiors is far from what people believe it to be.

I just started reading this and it immediately reminded me of the Uglies series somehow.
I fear this conversation about this band could go on for ever and ever. what I was really asking was what genre of music is it that they play?
Haha, I should *not* have scrolled down through the comments :P I love the summary, I feel like I'm hooked already.
The government IS hiding many secrets. Like, their building underground tunnels and trying to kill us humans off..
I really like the book but it is basically the exact same thing as he hunger games with the 1 boy and 1 girl going to the capital to train but I still love if
I can't believe I am just starting this, but I am glad I did! Sounds really good.
