"The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf" by Ambelin Kwaymullina is set 300 years in the future. The old world has been destroyed, and a new world has been formed. There are people who have special abilities. People with abilities, illegals, are believed to be dangerous and are locked in a detention center. Ashala Wolf is an illegal. She is the leader of The Tribe, a group of teenagers all of whom ran away to avoid being detained. When Ashala is betrayed by Justin, a new Tribe member, as well as an undercover enforcer, her whole world comes crashing down. Will she be experimented on and terminated? Will she escape? Or will she help give others a fighting chance?

Opinion: 

Out of all the dystopian genre books I've read, I like this idea best. However, I struggled to get through it. When I started reading it, pushing through the first 20 pages was a challenge. I got confused with who was talking and when. The book begins with Ashala being detained. It was difficult for me to connect all the dots. I was completely lost for a majority of the book. Again, I like the idea and plot but I think it could have been written in a clearer way. However, the detail and descriptions really painted a picture in my head. The author also did a good job of describing emotion, which caused me to understand and almost feel the same emotion that the character was feeling.
