Summary from Goodreads:

No one has set foot on Earth in centuries—until now.
Ever since a devastating nuclear war, humanity has lived on spaceships far above Earth's radioactive surface. Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents—considered expendable by society—are being sent on a dangerous mission: to recolonize the planet. It could be their second chance at life...or it could be a suicide mission.

CLARKE was arrested for treason, though she's haunted by the memory of what she really did. WELLS, the chancellor's son, came to Earth for the girl he loves—but will she ever forgive him? Reckless BELLAMY fought his way onto the transport pod to protect his sister, the other half of the only pair of siblings in the universe. And GLASS managed to escape back onto the ship, only to find that life there is just as dangerous as she feared it would be on Earth.

Confronted with a savage land and haunted by secrets from their pasts, the hundred must fight to survive. They were never meant to be heroes, but they may be mankind's last hope.

Kass Morgan's 'The 100' delivers a riveting narrative set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic Earth, where humanity's last hope lies in the hands of a group of juvenile delinquents sent down from a space station to assess the planet's habitability. With its blend of high-stakes drama, compelling characters, and thought-provoking themes, this novel captivates readers from start to finish.

The writing style in this novel is wonderful. Fluid, easy to follow. Morgan has created a whole backbone to a society in peril and she really allows the reader to immerse themselves in this dystopian and imagine what it would be like to live in it. Creative and wonderful.

4 out of 5 stars for The 100 by Kass Morgan.
