Cured (Stung Book 2) by Bethany Wiggins

Cured is the sequel to the YA dystopian book Stung. Since Jacqui and her mother were not allowed to live inside the wall, she has lived most of her life as a boy named Jack. A few years ago, her brother Dean left with Fiona's mother to help her find somewhere to live, but never came back. When she hears the news of a cure, she decides to figure out what happened to them. She runs away to Fiona and her fiance Bowen for help for finding out where they are, and they set out to find them. Along the way they must fight to keep the cure out of the wrong hands and fix their shattered world.

In Stung, Jacqui was briefly featured in the first few chapters. I was happily surprised to see her again in Cured, this time as the main protagonist. I really liked her determination and medical skills, which really came in handy. I also liked that there was a lot of action and not a lot of sitting around and doing nothing.

The one thing I do not get and do not like is the fact that she told them she was 12, when in reality she is near 16. I also did not like that almost half the book was flashbacks to her previous years in life. Doing flashbacks is fine, but most of the time they were a couple pages, and I found myself wanting to skip them to just get to the story. 

I recommend that you read the two books in this series!
