I read the sample of World of Shell and Bone, and liked it enough to buy it (2.99), but it just got less and less clean. About half way through the language gets bad, and sexual stuff - not too explicit, but I decided to stop and delete it. So, not a recommend from me. Also, I tried to explain the premise of the book to my husband and yeah, its a bit hard to swallow. The Dystopian genre is so crowded right now, you really have to bring something great to it.
