The First Principle is a charming story about a teenage girl whose life is about to get flipped upside down. After one of Vivica's classmates is forcibly removed from a study hall by Population Management for her mandatory abortion after being found pregnant, Vivica speaks up. Little does she know that she is planting seeds of rebellion in her own life with those very actions. Only days after this she finds out that she herself is pregnant by her ex. Now she must save the child's life and the only people who can help her are the rebels. She gives the rebels a chance and embarks on an epic journey. Will she make it to full term? Or will the government and Population Management catch her first?


This book is one of my new favorites. It is very well-written and a real page-turner. I recommended it to my friends, and they enjoyed it so much that they recommended it to others. I would love to see a sequel come out and give the ending to this story, possibly about how the rebels are victorious or not victorious. The beautiful characters and the fast-paced storyline make this book exceptional. I would love to see Marissa Shrock's name on more books.
