Survival in the Death Shop
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi had all the elements I like in a good dystopia; survival, conspiracies, special abilities, and a hint of romance. Aria has lived her whole life in a protected dome. A false accusation gets her exiled outside to what is commonly called the Death Shop because there are so many ways to die. If she can survive, she wants to prove her innocence. Perry is an Outsider, used to surviving in the harsh climate outside of the domes. When his nephew is kidnapped, Perry is determined to get him back. They each have something the other needs, which makes them reluctant allies. But to succeed, they will need to survive all that the Death Shop throws at them.
