Publisher's Summary

A prescient and gripping novel of a second American civil war, and the children caught in the conflict, forced to fight.

Our children are our soldiers.

After his impeachment, the president of the United States refuses to leave office, and the country erupts into a fractured and violent war. Orphaned by the fighting and looking for a home, 10-year-old Hannah Miller joins a citizen militia in a besieged Indianapolis.

In the Free Women militia, Hannah finds a makeshift family. They'll teach her how to survive. They'll give her hope. And they'll show her how to use a gun.

Hannah's older brother, Alex, is a soldier, too. But he's loyal to other side, and has found his place in a militant group of fighters who see themselves as the last bastion of their America. By following their orders, Alex will soon make the ultimate decision behind the trigger.

On the battlefields of America, Hannah and Alex will risk everything for their country, but in the end, they'll fight for the only cause that truly matters - each other.

a leftist counterpart for those cringey jd molle

This is basically as cringey as those JD Molle books about surviving an apocalypse but now it’s just a thinly disguised and poorly written hunk of shit following a left leaning way of thinking. Basically this is all fantasy, from the way the left thinks it’s being victimized, to the rationale behind their need to take power, to the way they think the right thinks. And don’t get me started on the “rightist” in this book. Fucking ridiculous. It’s as if CNN hired someone to write this hogwash. Pathetic. You can basically read right through the stupid cover story and see the political agenda and it’s trash. Someone take his computer away

Fantastic Ride!

I don't know how I just learned about this author, but he knows exactly how to spin a yarn. I'm going to read everything from him now and you should, too!

life in the US in 5 years

This is a thoughtful and likely way the US will go. The eerie part is we have already been told we are on "the list" to remove, whatever that means. As a liberal in rural America the threat is real. The right wing around here can't wait for the war to start. This really needs a book 2.

The horrors of war

What a great book. The story of child soldiers and the psychological impact on them—and society—during a second American civil war. The book is dark, gritty, and gripping. I couldn’t stop listening. It does a good job of showing how idiotic people can be, no matter what their political leanings are. Highly recommended. Also, I’m pretty sure this is the first one narrated by Andrew Eiden that I’ve listened to. While I initially wondered by this wasn’t read by a woman as 3/5’s of the main POV characters are women, I think he did a fantastic job.

An interesting apocalyptic tale

This is an interesting story of a possible near future in the US. While it is well written and well performed I do find it rather heavy-handed. It's really a story of the horrors of child soldiers and something of why they exist.

it was pretty all right

I thought it was pretty cool. the only bad thing I can say about it is that it drags on a bit in some parts
