Publisher's Summary

They call her Robin Hood....

In a world where we have government of the rich, by the rich, for the rich, one girl decides to fight back.

America in 2105 is beset with mass inequality, poverty, and increasingly large numbers of the poor. This, combined with the breakdown of families and marriages, has led to huge economic and societal burdens. A fractured and divided America ushers in an authoritarian government that promises to solve all these problems in one stroke with a radical solution.

Welcome to the CRAS: the Child Redistribution Adoption System. Also known as the cure for America's failing economy, it is the bane of 19-year-old Robin Sylvone's existence.

Under the system, millions of poor families have their children taken and given to the rich. As a single teen mother, Robin fell within the scope of the scheme and lost her baby two years ago. After being forced to drop out of school and become a factory worker in order to support herself, she doesn't see much light in her future - or hold any hope of seeing her child again.

Until she stumbles upon a group of misfits who share her frustrations and desire for change. They are an underground movement of thieves, stealing children back from the rich and returning them to the poor.

Robin will do anything to find her daughter, even if it means tangling with a government that has zero tolerance for rebellion. Even when the penalty is death.

Will Robin find her baby girl? Or is she destined to the same fate all other rebels have met at the hands of the United Nation of America?

Buy now to find out....

Fans of The Gender Game, The Handmaid's Tale, or The Hunger Games will be gripped by this thrill ride through a chillingly warped America.

Disappointing YA Novel - Great Premise

Let me start by saying I really like YA novels and I thought the set up/premise for this story was a wonderful idea. Sad to say I feel like this entire book could've been edited down to 5 or 6 chapters and the characters and world seemed underdeveloped and immature.
Now I don't know if the book was rushed or not but it felt like a story made up on the spot and not thought out. The romance was like two 13 year olds making googly eyes at each other, I never felt the tention nor the connection.
I really like Rebecca Soler's performance but with the characters being so undeveloped, she didn't have much to work with.

sigh

I thought the story sounded interesting. something good and light to listen to on a drive. The writing style is super immature and I feel like it is something I would have written in 10th grads. The narrator is good, I thinlk.... I don't like her but it might just be the copy she is performing.

Boring

If the author had cut out all of the main character’s endless moaning and rehashing of everything six or seven times, the book would be about five hours shorter and a pretty decent first half of a novel. Warning: it ends on a cliffhanger smack in the middle of the only significant action that takes place after the initial introduction. The author needs to learn how to show, not tell, and then how to tell only once. I had to keep hitting the “skip forward” button to move it along and didn’t miss much. This book hits nearly every bad YA trope without managing to tick many of the boxes of “expected but would add spice.” Despite all this, it’s an interesting premise (which is why I got the book in the first place) and it does do some truncated exploring into the world said premise creates. The author has promise, just needs to hone her craft a bit more.

Where’s the plot?

I am going through this series only because I love Rebecca Soler’s narration performances. But the entire time I just kep asking myself when there was actually going to be a story arch. It is only ever random stuff happening.

Totally Hooked

All I can say is Bella Forrest does it again! I loved this book from beginning to end. The plot is intriguing and draws you in, and you connect with the characters! I especially like that there is suspense but also character development.I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an audiobook that you don't want to end yet can't wait to finish! Can't wait to continue on with this series

Fun and interesting.

If you have enjoyed Bella Forrest before, you will here. I love this story. It is part of a series so I will wait until all come out until I finish as I find cliffhangers annoying as they get me out of the story a little but, these will be worth the wait.

where's the end?

I wish I would have known that this was not a complete story. This is actually part one of a two-part book.

Why sell book ONE of a series and not book TWO?

The book was good and well written. Very descriptive. The book ends at a climactic point and you need to purchase book two which, as of the time of this review, is unavailable!
