Truth? That's a lie. (Book Review)

Truth (XVI #2) by Julia Karr

In this sequel to "XVI," Nina Oberon's life has changed enormously. After her mother was killed, Nina discovered the truth about her father, the leader of the Resistance. And now she sports the same Governing Council-ordered tattoo of XVI on her wrist that all 16-year-old girls have. But Nina won't be anyone's stereotype. Original. (Summary from Goodreads)

In XVI Nina Oberon was such a strong and interesting character. The whole plot felt so interesting to me and I coudn't help but get enthralled in the world that was the novel. I wish I could say that Truth was as good as XVI, but I would be lying. 

It seems like Nina has just gotten angsty with her new tattoo. There was info-dumping and it just seemed overly emotional. Like the book was trying to hard to live up to the first one and it failed. Miserably.

I wish I could say that I cared enough to read the next book but I'm not sure that I do.
