Summary from Goodreads:
A thrilling, futuristic sci-fi novel set in a unique and thought-provoking world, from author Shannon Duffy.
Desiree Six (because she was born on a Friday) believes in everything the Protectorate stands for. She likes the safety and security of having her entire life planned out—her career, her mate, even the date of her death. She doesn’t even think to question when Darien, her childhood friend and neighbor, is convicted of murdering his parents. They had seemed like such a loving family. But if he was convicted, then he must have done it.
Then Darien shows up in her room late one night. He has escaped from the Terrorscape—a nightmare machine used to punish all Noncompliants—and needs Desiree’s help. What he tells her rocks her world to its core and makes her doubt everything she’s ever been told.
With this new information, will Desiree and Darien be able to escape the Protectorate before it’s too late?

I love thrift stores. I’m one of those girls who makes a bee-line straight passed all of the major clothing stores and ducks into a consignment shop. There is just absolutely nothing wrong with thrift stores. I remember when I was a kid, even when I was a teenager, I was so embarrassed to be buying my jeans at a local Goodwill. My family didn’t have a lot of money and this was just the way things were. All of my stuff was hand-me-downs from relatives or off of the rack from Goodwill. I had few brand new things, but as a child I was naive. Now I see the potential in things. Now I can see how some clothing from ten years ago, is in style now.
