Publisher's Summary

The world has changed. The buildings have fallen, blown away with the winds. The roads crumble as the forest takes back the land we stole a long time ago. It's only been 10 years since the end, but it feels like a hundred for Emma, who has been alone since the beginning, surviving on the skills her crazy father forced on her.

Trust no one. Pull the trigger. Hide. Run. Stay away from the other survivors. Stay away from the Infected. She has obeyed her father's rules since she can remember running from the car accident that claimed his life. But one night that all changes. The knock at her cabin door and the voice of the girl on the other side don't make Emma help the girl. No - it's the fact that the girl, Anna, is willing to die to save her wounded brother that changes everything in Emma's world. Emma finds friends and family in Anna and her brother, Jake. She feels things that she thought she never would. But like her Granny always said, "Everything comes at a cost. You must decide what you are willing to pay." For Emma that decision comes as Anna is stolen and taken to the breeder farms. Emma knows that she will pay anything to get Anna back, including her own life.

    "Simple writing. Didn't like narrator"

    This book would be better for the young adult listener. Compared to the Hunger Games and the Divergent series I was disappointed. Too predicable. I couldn't finish.

    "Really Enjoyed"
    Would you listen to Born again? Why?

    I really enjoyed this book as it was not focused on the technical details of weapons, training and such, it was about the turmoil and emotional consequences of her father's influence and the life after he died. I loved how the main character was finally successful in dealing with her isolation and gaining the ability to include others in her life.

    Great book as I love the focus on the emotional and mental turmoil one would feel.

    "Skip this one!!"
    What disappointed you about Born?

    The story was so silly and unbelievable.


    Would you ever listen to anything by AE Watson again?

    No. Her writing is too lacking logic and thought


    How could the performance have been better?

    The woman who read the book was pretty awful. She over enunciated many words and it was hard to concentrate on the book because of her poor performance.

    "Finally a heroine I can respect"

    She's bad ass and demands respect. I can't stand girls who keep falling for guys for the wrong reasons. She doesn't give in to desires, she goes the hard way cuz she knows she's worth it and respects herself. And hilarious about the big guy with no survival skills, like so many guys I know. Cracks me up. I like the characters and how the storyline evolves naturally. I can relate.

    "Poor story"
    Any additional comments?

    The story wasn't great and the charaters were all over the place. I also didn't like the slut shaming comments about a victum of sexual violence especially since this girl has lived on her own since she was like 9 for 10 years. She likely would have only heard that language from the hunters and it's unlikely any woman would use words they use.
