My personal Rating-
{These ratings are for content, since everyone has a different opinion on the Rapture and how it will happen.}
Again, with very light “language”, which was nice! I’m still very much into the whole rebel plot of this book. (You would think that the teachers would realize, however, that the more you say something is banned, the more the kids will want to do it. That’s just common teenager logic.)
I will say that I highly disagree with dogs being left behind in the rapture, though. That was the most annoying part of this book. Overall, “The Underground” was a good one for laying the plot for future books in the series. ;)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
