And it's all about to come crashing down.
A stranger has come to take away all the little children, including Martin's sister, Cassie, and no one wants to talk about where she has gone. The way Martin sees it, he has a choice. He can remain in the dubious safety of HM1, with danger that no one wants to talk about lurking just beneath the surface, or he can actually break out of the suburb, into the mysterious land outside, rumored to be nothing but blowing sand for miles upon miles.
Acclaimed author Clare B. Dunkle has crafted a fresh and fast-paced science-fiction thriller, one that challenges her characters - and her readers - to look closer at the world they take for granted.
This very imaginative, but all too realistic version, of what life could be like if the wrong people were in charge will keep you listening until the last minute. I wish there were more books here by Dunkle.
The narrator is wonderful and adds to the telling.
