Set in the future when teenagers are monitored via camera and their recorded actions and confessions plugged into a computer program that determines their ability to succeed. All kids given a "score" that determines their future potential. This score has the ability to get kids into colleges, grant scholarships, or destroy all hope for the above. Scored's reluctant heroine is Imani, a girl whose high score is brought down when her best friend's score plummets. Where do you draw the line between doing what feels morally right and what can mean your future? Friendship, romance, loyalty, family, human connection and human value: all are questioned in this fresh and compelling dystopian novel set in the scarily forseeable future.

Mediocre Attempt at an Aristocratic Piece of Fiction
Scored demonstrates an interesting plot that caught my attention for the first tenth of the novel. The additional nine-tenths poorly demonstrated a lackluster attempt of teenage angst trying to overthrow an ill-designed system. The target market for this novel, which, in my opinion, is highly recommended for a teenage audience, is too complex for a teenage or young adult audience, as unnecessary slurs, cusses, and poorly placed words create a piece of fiction that fails to execute its main point. I would highly not recommend this book to anyone; not an entertaining read for any audience.
