Chasing Liberty, the first in a YA dystopian trilogy by Theresa Linden and gives it 5 claws!
4.5 stars for a story so compelling, I had to finish it even though it was not a pleasant experience. I've never liked the dystopian genre, but this one is so suspenseful and feels so real, it was like watching a bad accident happening. I couldn't NOT watch, though my heart was in my throat. If you like dystopian, you'll love this book, but be forewarned it ends on a cliffhanger so you'll want to read the next one. I love how family and faith are so pivotal in this story and how horrible life becomes without them."
