Knowledge comes with a price.
Tommy and Careen’s eyes are opened to the Office of Civilian Safety and Defense’s abuses of power. After accidentally discovering that the miracle antidote that’s supposed to protect them is actually meant to control them, they take their knowledge public and join the fight to undermine the OCSD’s next bid for total control of the population.
Being a part of the Resistance brings with it a whole new set of challenges. Tommy and Careen’s differing viewpoints threaten to drive a wedge between them, and their budding relationship is tested. Not everyone working for change proves trustworthy, and plans to spark a revolution go awry with consequences far beyond anything they bargained for.

The Resistance Is Growing
4.75 out of 5 stars
The continued story of Careen and the Resistance as they continue to grow their support and numbers while fighting against the never-ending power of the OCSD. They will stop at almost nothing to bring down the OCSD once and for all.
The narration for Resist was done by Sarah Rogers who narrated the first book in the Resistance series also. She does a great job and actually does an even better job narrating this story than the first. I think that I was either used to the type of voice she was using, or she used less of an innocent teenage voice. Regardless, Rogers does a great job narrating the story and I cannot wait to hear her narrate the third book!
Resist picks up right where Counteract leaves off, throwing the reader right back into the story of Careen and the others in the Resistance. Lawson throws a little more romance into this book (it is a YA book which typically feature a love interest or even a love triangle). This seems to have those typical elements, but they didn't feel forced. Young adults are very keen on finding true love right away and this seems to play on that feeling.
The actual story is really well thought out and explained. Granted, I think you need to read or listen to Counteract so that you fully understand what is going on in Resist, but inside of Resist, I think that Lawson has drawn out a really interesting Dystopian society. There were many times where I was drawing parallels to other Dystopian stories both old and new like 1984 and The Hunger Games.
Overall, Lawson does a great job grabbing your attention from the beginning and not letting it go. She writes a wonderfully thought out and explained dystopian full of characters that you want to get to know better. The story feels extremely believable which makes it even more enjoyable.
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
