LifeLoganPondThe economy crashed, the country is floundering, and Carrie Ashworth struggles to keep her brother and sister alive. She has two jobs in her newly-formed, newly-outlawed clan: grow crops to feed thirty-six people and keep Simmons, their local patrolman, happy. Carrie’s life settles into a simple rhythm and is almost content when Greg Pierce shows up. A man with the ambition to help them survive. A man determined to hate her.

When a government raid nearly wipes out their clan, Greg realizes the true reason behind their safety. Patrolman Simmons has fallen for Carrie. Greg takes it upon himself to give the socially-awkward patrolman what he wants. Only Carrie doesn’t like Greg throwing her in Simmons’s path, especially when Greg’s brusque exterior melts, and she catches a glimpse of the real man underneath. Carrie is forced to choose: follow her heart or save her clan.

Life won’t let her choose both.

    This was a unique dystopian novel, one that seems plausible. I loved the characters, felt like the conversations and situations (for the most part) were believable, and rooted for the main characters (except I hated Greg at the beginning). I can tell that this book is building towards something bigger in the next two books.

    I enjoyed the setting of the book and the issues the clan had to face were believable. I liked Carrie, but she drove me absolutely crazy with how she gave in so easily. I just wanted her to stand up for herself. I really struggled with Greg. At the end I still didn’t like him that much. He was very rude. And I felt like sometimes it was really over the top. Overall, I felt like it was well written and enjoyed it.
