A post apocalypse space habitat is suffering system failure after generations in space. Their solution is to dispose of teen age miscreants in an attempt to discover if Earth is habitable. This story follows up The 100 which is the first book in the series. This story chronicles the experiences of the 100 on Earth and does periodic flash backs to fill in the back story.
The characters are maturing in this book. The evolving maturity leads to changes in the relationships between the main characters. There is a dawning awareness that abysmal ignorance ruled in regards to the conditions on earth.
The changing conditions on the space station are grossly impacting the remaining populace. Those changes are foreseen to impact the 100 on Earth. The main function of the plot seems to be to showcase the characters and their romantic entanglements.
The book is somewhat simplistic but in the nature of the YA audience it is likely to be well received.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
