While there, she comes across a new, even bigger opportunity, though taking it may mean suffering the ultimate consequences of The Regime.

Great job! You had a unique style and I quite liked the setting. It was a nice dystopian and I'm eager for more. (Usually I give better feedback but I don't see anything wrong with this;) ) anyways, nice job!

God is God and I am not
I can only see a part
Of this picture he's painting
God is God and I am man
I will never understand
Because only God is God

You're a very talented writer. A lot of people don't have any identity to their writing. You have a very defined writing style and it really helped me connect with the story so good job with that. 

I think you have a great idea for a book. Good luck with the rest of it!

My first thought while reading this was that you have fantastic word choice! Your sentence fluency is also really admirable and it helps keeps the reader engaged.

I also liked the setting, kinda reminded me of The Hunger Games in an off-handed way. Just like, how the youth are used to further the government's purposes I guess.

My critique would be to remember that in a book (or even in a short story really), you don't need to rush things. It's hard to say exactly how to convey this, but a good example is in how you bring across a character's personality and attributes. Don't feel rushed to explain how someone behaves or even looks. Show it slowly and gracefully by adding more scenes and more dialouge that give pieces, then let the reader put the pieces together.

Overall, some of the best work I've seen! 5 out of 5 :)
