Review
This book was AMAZING!!! I would highly recommend it!! It’s about a girl named Nova, a.k.a Nightmare who is in this villain group called the Anarchists, and they want to destroy the Renegades. Nova can put people to sleep just by touching them. The end is so good, and I cannot wait for the sequel!!!  Find this in the WPL catalog.
