Charlie lives in a dystopian future kingdom where citizens are divided into castes based off the languages they can speak. Charlie possesses the gift of being able to speak any language, a talent that, if found out, would result in her execution. Do not be fooled by the interesting concept. This book is terrible. The characters are undeveloped and boring, the plot is extremely poorly executed, and the writing is atrocious. The only people who should read The Pledge are those who enjoy cheap romance novels that no one buys at Stop and Shop, because frankly, this book was sappy beyond belief and could very well have had a picture of Fabio on the cover.
Please, spare yourself.
