Back-Of-Book Blurb

I've been working on writing a blurb for the back of my novel 'The Cause'. It's a lot harder than I thought it would be. I had to strip the story down to it's basic elements and give a description of it without sounding boring.

Here it is.

The only way to fix the system is to break it.

Long after the government falls, one city is founded in it’s place. Residents of the city are granted bodies that never age or grow tired. During the day, residents work to reach new potentials and, since sleep isn’t needed, celebrate all night. But living in Utopia does have a catch.
Guilt is a crime punishable by death.

Air Dressler’s new job description lands him on the city’s firing squad. He finds it impossible to enforce the law without breaking it himself. Through long-forgotten memories and a group of reluctant rebels, Air learns how to break the city. But if he is really going to carry it out, he will have to choose between friend and ideals all the while fighting his own guilt.

 Well... What do you think? Let me know if this novel sounds interesting, boring, something you might read, something you'd hate, etc...
