Downsiders by Neal Shusterman

Downsiders I read a book called Downsiders by Neal Shusterman. It was very intriguing, and even romantic in a sort of way. This book is about two very different worlds that intersect when Talon (downsider) and Lindsey (topsider) meet. Talon, who found her to be interesting showed her  the downside. Gutta and Railborn (Talon’s friends) accidentally saw them, and Railborn told on Tilon. Sadly, Tilon must face several punishments. One of them is that he shall never go to the Topside again.
