Young heroes decide that they are not too young or too powerless to change their world in this gripping, futuristic young adult novel by the New York Times best-selling author of the Printz Award-winning Monster.
It is 2035. Teens, armed only with their ideals, must wage war on the power elite.
Dahlia is a Low Gater: a sheep in a storm, struggling to survive completely on her own. The Gaters live in closed safe communities, protected from the Sturmers, mercenary thugs. And the C-8, a consortium of giant companies, control global access to finance, media, food, water, and energy resources - and they are only getting bigger and even more cutthroat. Dahlia, a computer whiz, joins forces with an ex-rocker, an ex-con, a chess prodigy, an ex-athlete, and a soldier wannabe. Their goal: to sabotage the C-8. But how will Sayeed, warlord and terrorist, fit into the equation?
I like how the lady reading the book had a really good flow and her fluency is on point. I gave it five stars because the lady reading it is a good reader and the book overall was amazing. This book is for young teens because of the language.
