What I Loved: The writing for this book just pulled you into the story, allowing you to visualize this world and the people. I loved the descriptions of the characters and the places. I was completely immersed in this story.
How I Felt: I cannot tell you enough how sucked into this story I was. There are some books that you read where you kind of look up a the clock, go grab a snack, check Instagram, or whatever. With this book, however, I was just like what is going to happen next and had to keep turning the page. The character’s lives are filled with love, fear, sadness, and so much more and Rachel Anne Cox puts it all on the page in a way that just completed this story perfectly.
To Read or Not To Read: If you love a good dystopian or post-apocalyptic story, this is just the book for you!
What’s This Book About Anyway?
Sam has been in a work camp for the past 7 years and after finally being released, heads back home to find Gemma, his life-long love. He finds her, but she is already married to someone, and she’s trying to lead a new rebellion.
In the year 42, the world is in a post-apocalyptic state without many of the comforts we know today. The people are controlled by a shady government that controls their freedom. There are those who will stand for it no longer; they are the women, ready to stand up and rebel. Sam tries to adapt to his new life outside the workers camp, precariously balancing his loves and his want for peace and rebellion.
