Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins

WHY didn't I read this earlier!? It is awesome! She is also the author of Hunger Games, but I think this is better. Gregor is an awesome character, Underland does an excellent job of walking the line between dystopian and utopian. It does a great job of creating a complex society with both pros and cons. The supporting characters were multi-dimensional and complex. There is nothing I didn't like about this book!

There are other books in the series, but this one stands alone very nicely.
