Thoughts: Wow. The Other Side of the Island immediately pulled me into its dystopian world and left me thinking long after the last chapter. I liked Honor's parents and their differences. I also liked Honor and how she grew throughout the novel. Fans of The Giver and The Uglies series might like this intriguing story.
